  • Summer Camp

  • CHANGE Adventure Camp is a week-long day camp designed to equip youth with skills for healthy living in the context of fun and adventure. We will be providing the program for children ages 6-12. Camp begins at 9am (drop off is 8:30-9:00am) and ends at 4pm (pickup time is 4:00 – 4:30 pm).

    We have been fortunate enough to partner with the several community sites in Edmonton and Parkland County, who are allowing us to use their buildings as a “hub” for our CHANGE Adventure Camp. These partnerships will allow us to offer in-person camp activities with access to washrooms and an indoor space if the weather is not cooperating.
