Registering for Camp

Gull Lake Centre manages the camp registration process through a separate online system called Campwise. Some camps have special skill groups that campers can sign up for, so be sure to check back in if you registered early (we’ll email you when the time comes).

2021 Summer Camp Update – Into the Unknown

We are hopeful and anxious for summer, but at the current moment there is not enough information to know how camp is going to go.  Because we don’t know if we can do overnight, how many people, or what the other restrictions we be, we are waiting to open registration.  LTD registration is open now for leadership students in grades 9-12, but dates and details for that program are still to be determined. 

We learned many things from last year – one being that when a window of opportunity opens, we need to take it right away!  Another, is that it is a huge pain to cancel and refund 600 campers.  So, we are going to wait until the picture becomes clearer for what we can offer and when.  Please know that we are ready to seize whatever opportunities come our way and we will let you know with all the details once we know them.  We know this is not ideal as you try to map out your summer and have some control in this ever-shifting time.  We will do our best to have flexible dates and ages for our events so that there are multiple options for campers to attend.

We are working, and waiting, and praying, and hoping from here.

Grace and Peace,

Gull Lake Centre Staff

Frequently Asked Questions

Q

How do I get to camp?

A

Driving directions as well as a google maps link are available on our directions page.

Q

Do we provide transportation to camp?

A

No, transportation to camp is not provided.

Q

Is Gull Lake Centre a Christian Camp?

A

We certainly are! We were founded in 1920 as a place to play and pray and that is still what we are doing today! Specifically, we are owned by the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, but we happily welcome campers from all faith backgrounds and religions. The majority of our campers will come from some form of Christian faith background; however, we know that many of our campers will not have a Christian or any faith background and we are prepared to welcome them just as they are – with no expectation to change.
We have two chapel times each day – one in the morning, and one in the evening. One is usually shorter, 15-20 minutes and has a couple of fun songs and a story, and the other is a bit longer with more songs and a longer story/message. The songs and stories are age appropriate for each camp. We intentionally talk about God throughout the day as it comes up in conversation as well. We teach that there is a good, gracious, just, God who loves us and created us and wants to be in relationship with us as individuals and as a humanity. We use the Bible as the foundation of all of our teaching and the good news of Jesus as our focal point.
If you are interested in sending your child to camp, but aren’t from a faith background and want to make sure that this will be a safe and enjoyable place for your kid you can contact our director at steve@gulllakecentre.ca or call 403-782-2495. Steve will be happy to explain in further detail and answer any questions.
