Camp Little Red is a Bible-based wilderness camp located in central Alberta. As a Christian camp, we are dedicated to using the whole camp experience as an opportunity for the salvation and the discipleship of everyone who comes through the camp gate.
To use the camp experience as an opportunity for the salvation and discipline of individuals toward maturity in Christ and to minister to the total person of each camper and staff member physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually while having fun.
To provide twenty-four hour living in a group setting in a wilderness type environment with qualified leadership, that we may reach our goal for each camper – through learning skills and social interaction, we aim to develop a healthy self-esteem with a Christ-like perspective.
Camp Little Red is a testimony to the Lord’s supply. In 1979 Camp Chestermere (near Calgary) was running at full capacity. Starting a new camp was suggested and while a meeting to discuss raising the money was still in session, a business man called to donate $30,000 for that very purpose. In 1981, one hundred & twenty acres were purchased on the Little Red Deer River and dedicated to the Lord.
The first few camping seasons were certainly an adventure, as there were few facilities, but much progress has since been made. A well has been drilled, several buildings have been built, and all the necessary equipment to run a wilderness camp has been gathered. We now run six camps throughout the summer as well as several day camp and winter weekend camps
Membership is presently made up of six central Alberta churches – Bethany Baptist, Innisfail Baptist, Garrington Community, West Zion Mennonite, Mirror Alliance, and Leslieville Bethal Union. Two delegates from each church serve on the camp board and work closely with the Director to look after the business of operating the camp.
