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

What is tuck shop?

A

Tuck shop is like a candy store were the kids get to buy something once a day. Candy bags, pop, freezies, and chips are available alongside other items such as beach balls, frisbees, and books.

Q

How much money should I send for tuck shop?

A

We do have a cap on what the kids can spend in one day, dependent on the age group. For the younger kids we usually suggest $5 – $10/week and for the older kids $10 – $20/week. If they would like to purchase additional T-shirts, books, or personal items then we recommend bringing additional money.

Q

Can my child call home?

A

Yes, your camper can call home whenever they need to speak with you or if they are just a little homesick.

A

Check in and drop off is between 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm on the first day of camp. Pick up is between 1:30 pm and 2:00 pm on the last day of camp.

Q

My child is bringing a friend. Can they be in the same cabin?

A

We try to accommodate all cabin mate requests, however we can not guarantee the request will be met. When registering online you can make up to 2 cabin mate requests. You can also specify if you would prefer your child not be in the same cabin as a sibling or other camper. Siblings may or may not be placed in the same cabin. If you have a preference, please provide this information as a cabin mate request. Please note: We are not able to accommodate cabin changes during check-in. Please be sure to provide all requests in advance. If you have questions please contact camp@gulllakecentre.ca.

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.
