Price for Single Camper (Age 5 – 7 Scamper)
Price for 2 Campers (Age 5 – 7 Scamper & Age 18+ Camper)
Scamper Camp offers a short and sweet camp experience for our littlest campers aged 5 – 7. We’ve also opened our doors to adult campers to come along with the child scampers. Moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandmas, and grandpas are invited to camp for the weekend as well. Scampers are between the ages of 5 and 7, campers must be 18 years of age or older and show proof of having completed a criminal record check with vulnerable sector check.
Check-in is between 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm on the first day of camp.
Pick-up is at 1:30 pm on the last day of camp.
Check back closer to summer to see what this year’s theme meal will be! At each camp we have a costume-based theme meal. We decorate the dining hall, play music to the theme, get into character and make it a fun event. Campers can participate by coming prepared with a costume. If you are not sure what to do, no stress. Our staff are creative and will help make sure the whole cabin has fun with it!
What to Expect
Around 8:00 we wake up the campers and start off the day with some short wake-up activities or games such as pillow fights, relay races, or other fun challenges. Campers are usually still a little drowsy but they wake up just in time for breakfast. For this age, some campers like to wake up super early, so we have bonus gym games with our morning watch staff for the early risers so the rest of the cabin can continue sleeping.
During this two-hour block of the day, campers participate in many of the different activities we have at camp. Anything from tubing, climbing, drama, arts, archery, and bumper balls, just to name a few.
Lunch & Tuck
After eating lunch in the dining hall it’s time for tuck – a shop with candy, drinks, camp clothing, and other cool stuff. Campers preorder from the tuck shop at breakfast time and have the order delivered to them right after lunch for them to enjoy the afternoon.
We head down to the beach while the afternoon is still young and spend a few hours in the sun. At the beach, campers can go tubing, build sandcastles, play beach volleyball, frolic in the water, or just relax on the beach while having a great conversation with a friend.
After the beach, there is time set aside for campers to hang out with their cabin and get a taste of the different things camp has to offer. All of the activities from skills time (tubing, climbing, arts, games, etc) can be done as a cabin.
Once every week we have a theme meal. Keep your eyes open for when we announce our theme meals so you can put together a costume and come have a blast at supper!
Each night we play a big wide game with the entire camp participating. Favorites of our little campers include Pony Express, Star Wars, Where’s Waldo, and many others.
Mug Up is just a code word we use for an evening snack.
Everyone gathers for some time to worship together. The speaker will give a talk or someone will share their testimony during this time.
After some wind-down time spent hanging out and getting ready for bed, everyone hits the sack for the night. If you are an adult camper with your little scamper, it’s your bedtime too! You are a camper, just like your kiddo.
What do I need to know about getting the criminal record check?
All adult campers are required to submit the original copy of their criminal record check with vulnerable sector check. This must have been issued no later than January of the previous year. This is absolutely mandatory and must be submitted before the deadline of June 1. This is a simple process but it does take time. You’ll need to go to your local police station and ask for a Criminal Record Check with the Vulnerable Sector cleared. This may come with a fee (which you will need to cover), then it may take several weeks to process and you will need to pick up. Please mail the original to Gull Lake Centre, Site 1, Box 6, RR 3 Lacombe, AB T4L 2N3 or drop off at camp.
