What You Need to Know
What is Wilderness Ranch doing in regards to COVID-19?
It is with great regret and sadness that I announce we will not be able to run camp at Wilderness Ranch in 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has drastically affected the way in which we live our lives and the announcements made by Alberta's chief medical officer last Thursday we have decided that it is not possible for us to run our program while adhering to the recommended practices in Alberta. To my knowledge this is the first summer that camp has been cancelled at Wilderness Ranch since its beginnings in 1967, over fifty years ago! Our hope as an organization is that we will be able to continue offering our program in 2021 and that your support and interest in Wilderness Ranch will remain constant throughout these troubled times.
What makes your camp the right choice for my child?
Wilderness Ranch is a great camping opportunity for any child. If your child likes being outside, likes adventure, playing games, and making new friends this camp is the right place for him or her. Wilderness Ranch is different in that we have a very high staff to camper ratio. This allows our campers to be heard and included in the group. Wilderness Ranch is a horse camp, horseback riding is the prominent activity each day. If your child is extremely allergic to horses or doesn't like riding horses Wilderness Ranch might not be the best choice.
Is there a limit to how much my kid can bring with them?
Where is Wilderness Ranch?
Wilderness Ranch runs our program out of two different locations: Mountain Valley Ranch and Wilderness Ranch. Wilderness Ranch is in a remote location with limit vehicle access so Camper hike in and out of the Ranch. Campers meet in Honey Coulee below are links to Mountain Valley Ranch, Wilderness Ranch, and Honey Coulee.
My Child doesn't go to church at home, can they still go to your camp?
Wilderness Ranch is a Christian camp and Christian teachings are a part of our program. With this being said we are welcoming to all people from all backgrounds and design our program so that no person ever feels excluded no matter what their background is.
