With awesome cabin leaders, fun activities and incredible friends, your child will have an amazing week at camp. Our prayer for all campers is that they will discover God’s endless love for them. We have great things planned and we look forward to having your child spend a week with us at Covenant Bay!

Camper fees cover approximately 50% of the actual cost of summer camp.  Generous donors give to Covenant Bay so that families can afford to send their child to camp. If you are in a position to give, please consider a donation so that even more campers can attend.

Going to camp can be full of anticipation, nerves, and excitement for both kids and parents. Your child will be well cared for by staff that have been chosen and trained to care for your child. All staff must submit a criminal record check, a child intervention check and two references along with their application. Staff are trained in first aid and have a number of other certifications based on the activities they lead and participate in.

Parent Volunteers

Some parents ask if they can stay the week their child is at camp and help out. Parents are always welcome and there are plenty of projects and tasks to help out with. We ask that during the camp session, parents who have not been screened and trained to lead our campers, respect their role as a volunteer/visitor.

If you are able to fill a specific role at Covenant Bay than your child will be able to attend for free.  Positions are limited by availability.

  • Camp Nurse
  • Life Guard
  • Cabin Leader
  • Photo / Media Personel
  • Activity Leaders

Canteen (store)

Campers are given the opportunity to get two snack items from the canteen each afternoon.  Snacks include ice cream treats, freezies, chocolate bars, pop and some smaller candies.  Your child will not need any extra money for the canteen.

Accommodations

Each cabin or tent group has one or two leaders. Our cabins sleep 6 campers each on bunk beds, with each building containing two cabins separated by a door. Our wall tents are 14×16 and sleep 6 campers. Each tent is on top of a deck platform and has cots for all. Nights can get chilly and so an extra blanket is wise to send along. We have extra blankets on hand as well.

Allergies and Medical

We collect allergy and medical information during registration. Our cooks are excellent and will accommodate your campers regarding special diet or allergies. All medications are collected at registration and will be administered by our designated staff person. We have lots of fun and sometimes accidents happen. If your child is injured or needs medical attention we will attempt to notify you prior to taking them to the Wetaskiwin hospital.

Typical Day

Twice a day we gather for a time of worship. Our speakers bring the Bible truths to life through stories, games, and interaction with the campers. After our morning chapel time, cabin and tent groups gather to have a conversation about what the speaker shared. It is normal for campers to have a significant experience within the chapel times and morning conversations. Encourage your child to continue to reflect and converse about this experience with you or another mentor.
