Peace Country Wilderness Camps

What is Peace Country Wilderness Camps (PCWC)?

Peace Country Wilderness Camps provides faith-based wilderness horse camp experiences in the stunning Two Lakes and Kakwa region and along the banks of the Smokey River near Grande Prairie for kids and adults alike.

COVID-19 Update

Dear camp family, community, supporters & campers,

On Thursday (April 30th), Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer, Deena Hinshaw, announced the continuation of current group gathering restrictions for the duration of the summer thus cancelling all events, festivals, rodeos, concerts and so forth where more than 15 people are gathered. In accordance with these requirements PCWC has now made the decision to cancel all camps, in all locations, for the coming 2020 camp season. Please pass this information on to others who may be affected by it. 

All summer camp fees already collected will be refunded unless parents or guardians choose to make that payment a donation. Susie Schartner, our Registrar, will be contacting all registrants via email. We still have needs for summer pasture for 50 horses and ongoing farrier bills. If you can help, please contact us.

In God’s kingdom, nothing is wasted. All the planning, preparation, commitments, efforts and prayers are preparation for what still lies ahead, even this summer. God has great plans and wants you to have a part in it: I encourage you to ask Him what that looks like for you. Thanks again for your prayers, interest and support in Peace Country Wilderness Camps. It’s really appreciated.

Dave Penner (Chairman)
