We are excited to officially announce the upcoming summer 2022 camp season with Peace Country Wilderness Camps.
Here at PCWC, our camps are imbued with friendship, outdoorsmanship, horsemanship, and a whole lot of fun.
Below you will find a quick summary of what each of our camps will look like, including a list of camp options, dates, and corresponding directors for each of our camps this year.
Our Ridge Riders camps are for ages 12-14 and act as the perfect entry-level camp with PCWC. These camps take place on a ranch near the Old Bezanson Townsite. Whether you are new to riding or not, Ridge Riders (RR) will help to create, build or expand on your horsemanship knowledge. The cost of RR is $300.00 CAD. We are offering 3 RR options this year as follows:

Prepare for a backpacking adventure in the wilderness, complete with all the outdoorsmanship experiences you crave to build strength, skill, and camaraderie with fellow hardcore hiking enthusiasts. The cost of Hiking Camp is $250.00 and will take place as follows:
Hiking Camp – July 16-20 – directed by Derek Syme
That concludes the details for our 2022 camp season. Registration for camp opens on Saturday, March 19th 2022 at 10:00am MST. An application form will go live on our website as well as on our Facebook Page. It is not uncommon for camps to fill up within an hour of registration opening, so if you have your eye set on a certain camp, we recommend you be prompt to complete an application as close to the time of opening as possible.
