Camp's Description

Camp Caroline is located in the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains, a short 1-hour drive southwest of Red Deer. We offer week-long summer camps for kids in Grades 4 -12 and a 3-day camp for Grades 2/3. Campers sleep seven in a room with 1-2 staff in one of our modern lodges with dormitory-style bathrooms at the ends of the hallway. On-site activities include ropes course, climbing wall, zipline, swimming in our indoor pool, crafts, sports & games, dance, archery, orienteering, mountain boarding, horseback riding, volleyball, basketball, and soccer. Off-site options include canoeing, hiking, climbing & rappelling, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, and waterskiing. However, we intend that a week of camp will be more than just new and fun interests, memorable stories, or great friendships. We also desire to give campers an opportunity to consider the spiritual component of their life in light of the life of Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible. We don't force this. We share it, through nature, engaging music, considerate teaching, and daily living. We plan to model the values of peace, joy, self-giving love, respect, and truth, and challenge approximately 160 young people every week to choose likewise. Currently accepting registrations, but the spots are filling up fast! Visit our website to register online!

No room for special needs campers... July 12, 2011
Reviewer: ConcernedParent from
1 Star 1 of 2 people found this review helpful

This camp refused to meet the special needs of our child with autism. They GUARENTEED us that they could cater to his needs, but belittled us when we attempted to educate them as to what his needs are. To make matters worse, they refused to allow our child's Aide Dog to attend the camp (which is illegal). The family offered to send family members who have completed the necessary university level training to work with his needs. The year round staff created so many loop holes and burocratic paperwork that it was near impossible for these individuals to complete it and attend camp with our child. We were notified of this less than a week to the start of the grade camp, and had no choice but to withdraw our child. As a past summer staff member of this camp, I believe the camp has changed for the worst. Only send your child if they fit into the cookie cutter mold of "normal." Highly dissapointed in the lack of professionalism and communication.
