Advent Retreat Update
I am so sad to officially state that we are not going to be running our annual Advent Retreat this year. Current COVID restrictions limit us to 15 people indoor or outdoors and that makes it unfeasible – not to mention that we want to do our part in limiting the spread as well. Advent retreat is a highlight of my year and something my family and I look forward too and enjoy immensely. We will miss seeing you and connecting and retelling the longing of the anticipation of our Savior. We hope to offer other retreat or gathering opportunities this winter as the restrictions loosen. Check out our newsletters to stay up to date.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get to camp?
Driving directions as well as a google maps link are available on our directions page.
Do we provide transportation to camp?
No, transportation to camp is not provided.
Is Gull Lake Centre a Christian Camp?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-782-2495. Steve will be happy to explain in further detail and answer any questions.
