The Value of Summer Camp

Since 1961 Camp Chamisall has welcomed all youth from grade 2 to grade 12. Every summer we offer 7 weeks of camp for Elementary, Junior High and Senior High students, run by volunteer staff. Our staff are Christ followers who are deeply passionate about serving our youth and accomplishing the mission of Camp.

Our Camp is a ministry of the Christian & Missionary Alliance. (The word ``Chamisall`` is an abbreviation of Christian And Missionary Alliance.) We are located in the Waiparous Valley at the foot of the Canadian Rockies, beside the Waiparous River.

Belong, Believe, Become

“Jesus teaches us about the value of the one, not about the volume of people” Luke 15
“The natural tendency of any group is to turn focus inward, focusing on the “insiders” and ignoring the “outsiders”. Jesus’ life shows us that His supernatural tendency is to bring the outsiders in, and calls us to do the same. We have been taught that if you believe like us, talk and think like us, behave like us, then you can belong with us. Jesus came along and turned that on its head. He welcomes sinners and says “you can belong with me until you believe in me and then I’ll help you become like me.””

Our mission statement is the core of that, a place of love, grace and compassion, providing space for the Holy Spirit to convict, to shine light in darkness, to speak truth, to experience Jesus’ deep desire for relationship and the transformation of lives for God’s glory.


O God, with all our hearts, we long for You. Come, transform us to be Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, Mission-focused people, multiplying disciples everywhere.
