RIDGE RIDERS | AGE 12-14 | $350

Experience Level: Beginner

Our Ridge Riders camps are a fantastic introduction to horsemanship and adventure with PCWC! These camps offer an introduction to horses and horseback riding, camping skills, and a whole ton of camp-style fun. At Ridge Riders, campers are able to build meaningful friendships and are encouraged in exploration of the Christian faith through Bible studies and discussions. Our goal is to make this the best week of your life. Sign up for Ridge Riders and let the memories begin!

20 spots per camp.

RANCH CAMP | AGE 14-17 | $525

Experience Level: Intermediate

 We invite you to come for a unique adventure with us on a bonafide ranch! At this camp, we will still have some of the same things you love about PCWC – horses, learning, wide games, campfires, singing, and most importantly, Bible studies. However, at Ranch Camp we offer you the unique opportunity to bring your horse with you to camp! That’s right, if you have a trained horse, we want you to bring it along for the ride. We will spend our days developing horsemanship skills and expanding our learning about cattle and other skills that are required to be successful in ranching. We look forward to seeing you at the ranch!

HIKING CAMP | AGE 14-18 | $250

If you enjoy being outdoors and want to experience the amazing beauty of the mountains, then come hiking with us! PCWC’s Hiking Camp offers an experience of the wilderness that allows campers to feel challenged and encouraged while experiencing closeness with the Creator of it all. Enjoy honing wilderness skills, creating new friendships and backcountry experiences, and having fun with a close-knit group of like-minded adventurers.

NEW! Thanks to generous donations, sleeping bags (with liners), sleeping pads, and hiking backpacks will be available to use, with a wide variety of sizes to choose from. Purchasing hiking gear that is good quality and lightweight can get expensive, and we want to ensure that anyone who wants to come to camp is able to join!

10 spots per camp.

MOUNTAIN BASE | AGE 14-18 | $525

Experience Level: Intermediate

If you could have the greatest week imaginable, what would it look like? You’d probably start with a group of terrific friends, good food, quality conversations, incredible riding adventures and some time to hang out. Toss in the incredible beauty of the Wilmore Wilderness Park (Kakwa Falls, Torrens Chutes and Sulfur Ridge), some life-changing, thought provoking Bible studies, a few crazy events, and you’ve discovered what it takes – that’s Base Camp for sure!

20 spots per camp.

Mountain Base #3: August 3-10th 2024, directed by Travis King

Location: Wilmore Wilderness National Park, Alberta


Experience Level: Intermediate-Experienced

Mountain Adventure is a step beyond Base Camp – it’s about being a part of something with a bit more edge, while holding onto the parts of Base Camp you enjoyed so much: action, friends, food, campfires and hilarious fun. You’ll explore the Kakwa country even further, getting to know the better-kept secret spots in the endless beauty of the back country, and what it means to be in a relationship with God. Come and experience remote camping, packing horses, untouched terrain, mountain summits, and more with us this year. Previous riding is a MUST at Adventure Camp.

ADULT CAMP | AGE 18+ | $525

Experience Level: Beginner-Experienced

Refresh your body and renew your spirit. Ride a little (…or a lot). Take leisure strolls, energetic hikes, or ride the trails – there is something for everyone to enjoy. Let us do the cooking while you enjoy the camping with friends in the paradise of wild Kakwa. This is always a memorable camp as each year brings a special blend of campers and staff together for a set of adventures that are custom fit for the group. Great teaching, fellowship, food, and renewal in an environment second to none!

A Reminder About Our Application Process

You are filling out an application form, not a registration form. You apply to camp, and our registrar will register you accordingly. This means until you have received an acceptance letter, you are not officially registered. Payment is only required upon acceptance.

Please have the camper’s Health Care number on hand – this is REQUIRED for the completion of applications.

The form must be filled out accurately and in its entirety by the camper’s parent or guardian if the camper is not 18 years of age or older.

  • Our registration lottery weekend opens on Friday, March 15th at 12am until Sunday, March 17th 2024 at 11:59pm (MST). Everyone who applies during this weekend will be included in a lottery style draw. This will be similar to picking names out of a hat. Based on the order of the draw, campers will be placed in the camp of their choice or added to the waitlist.
  • Please note that applications can still be submitted after the lottery cut-off at 11:59pm on March 17th, 2024. In this case, the campers who applied during the lottery weekend will have priority when being placed into camp. Once all lottery applicants have been slotted into camp or placed on waitlists, any campers who submit applications from March 17th onward will then be placed into camp or on waitlists based on the timestamp of their application.
  • You do not have to pay for camp until the registrar has sent you an acceptance letter.

Upon submission of your application, you should receive an automated email containing a copy of your application from Google Forms as confirmation that the application has successfully gone through. Please double check this copy for accuracy of information therein and email the camp Registrar to correct any errors if noted.  If you do not receive a copy of your submission, it may have gone to your junk folder, or your email may have been entered incorrectly on the form.
