Summer Camp Information

When you’re a kid, there’s nothing better than summer camp: the fast friendships, the first time your arrow hits that red target, the strides of the canoe oar, the calls of owls, and the waking up in a sleeping bag on the top bunk knowing you get to do it all over again.

We’ve become one of the summer camps Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer families choose because Camp Woods truly has it all: a beautiful, semi-wilderness setting that’s fun, safe and ripe for adventure; an exciting mix of traditional and popular new activities (did we mention our 35-foot Aspire Challenge Tower or our sailing program on the majestic Sylvan Lake?!); and a troupe of trained and enthusiastic leaders who follow Scouts Canada programs and safety guidelines.

Owned and operated by Scouts Canada and offering summer camp for kids aged 8-10, we love that we can now share adventures, challenge, and fun with Scouts and non-Scouts alike every summer. You’ll be amazed at how much they grow over these five days!

Camp Highlights

  • Climbing to the top of the Aspire Challenge Tower with up to eight teammates. It’s a thrilling test of your own climbing skills that can be made easier or harder, and you can only get to the top with help from your team.
  • Sleeping in rustic bunkhouses or tents with your friends, old and new—giggling, telling stories and talking about all the fun things you did that day.
  • Free time! You pick the activity you love—whether it’s tomahawk-throwing or archery—and we help you get even better.
  • Playing in the water. We’ve got all kinds of ways to have fun on Sylvan Lake, including swimming and tag on giant yellow water mats.
  • Camp photos. Easily find your camper photos sent direct to your phone via text with our WALDO Photos service.
