The summer camp programs at Camp Woods are designed around the educational principles that Scouts Canada has developed over more than a century of tradition and passion for the outdoors. We encourage youth to learn through hands-on experience, challenging them to realize their full potential by participating in a range of fun, exciting and educational activities.
Located on the shores of Sylvan Lake, about 25 minutes west of Red Deer, Camp Woods is a popular kids camp destination for youth across Alberta. Regardless of whether you’re from big cities like Edmonton and Calgary, or smaller centres like Drumheller or Camrose, we welcome all children to discover their inner Scout (but you don’t have to be a Scout!).
Our proximity to a large body of water, along with 105 acres of semi-wilderness area, allows us to offer a broad range of activities that are sure to engage your kids’ senses. The main camp features a full array of facilities for eating, sleeping and other summer camp activities.
