Frequently Asked Questions

Q

What is your COVID-19 policy for summer camps?

A

Restrictions could very well change between now and the summer. As of February 8, the Alberta Government’s Restriction Exemption Program (REP) was lifted, meaning we no longer require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test from campers and guests. As of March 1, indoor masking will also not be required. We will continue to follow government restrictions while doing our best to make space for all campers to attend.

Q

What is your cancellation policy?

A

The $25 minimum deposit is non-refundable. The remaining balance is refundable if registration is cancelled at least 2 weeks prior to the start of camp. Refunds are not available after that point. If you have any cold or flu like symptoms, please stay home! You can cancel anytime for COVID-related reasons and receive a full refund.

Q

Do you accommodate dietary restrictions?

A

Our talented caterers can accommodate most camper dietary restrictions. When registering, please give clear and specific instructions around your camper’s dietary needs.

Q

What should I do if my camper needs special accommodations?

A

Please contact our office with any special accommodation requests. One of our lovely staff members would be happy to chat about what your camper needs and what we can offer. Please note that if a camper requires an aid at school, they will also require an aid at camp.

Q

How much money should I send with my camper for Tuck Shop snacks?

A

“Tuck” is our name for the candy store where campers can buy snacks after lunch each day. We offer a selection of chocolate bars, candy, chips, pop, and frozen treats. Our smaller campers don’t do great with a huge overload of sugar every day, so we put a daily limit on how many items they can buy. There is a one item daily limit for scamper camp, two item limit for Inter. 1 & 2, Jr. Boys and Girls, and Tween weeks, and no limit during Jr. Teen, Sr. Teen and LTD weeks. For this reason, we suggest sending no more than the following amounts by camp week: For Scamper $5.00, for Jr Boys and Girls, $10.00, for Inter 1 & 2, Tween and Jr Teens $20.00, and Sr Teens or LTD week $25.00. Please note that the cut off for adding tuck money to your camper’s online registration is 9:00am on the Friday before the camp week starts.

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.
