Camps

 

Little Mike’s Camp (Ages 7 and Under) Accompanied by Family

Little Mike’s is a great way to introduce camp life to our little ones to get used to camping away from home with the security of their family being there too!  We have four days of fun and excitement that will stimulate the minds and bodies of these young barrels of energy.  The camp experience will give them the opportunity to meet some new friends and experience the beautiful outdoors that St. Michael’s Camp and Madge Lake has to offer.  We have 11 hotel style rooms with full bathrooms and as such can accommodate 11 families in their own private rooms.  This will allow for quiet family time after all of the excitement of the days.

Family Camp

God in the little things…getting unplugged and letting the Spirit work in your family. Whether you are from nearby or far, far away, you get the sense of pilgrimage, the sense of going away, retreating… a journey of the heart.

Cana Camp is offered through the Saskatoon Eparchy.  Please click on the button below to go to the Official Cana Camp Website or click on the link below to watch their inspirational YouTube Video.

Working Hard!

Winter Camp (Ages 10-15 co-ed)

Come join us for a memorable winter week fun filled activities in the snow!

Hang On!

Downhill Skiing

Come ski the Duck!  There is nothing like a fun-filled day on the slopes on the hills at the Duck Mountain Ski Area.

Cross Country Skiing

Great nature views and crisp clean air…a great experience in the beautiful outdoors at Madge Lake.

Tobogganing

Let’s see how fast you can slide down the hill!  Everyone loves an afternoon of sliding down the hill!

Skating

Some good ol’fashioned skating on the lake…a great experience in the middle of the great outdoors.

Ice Fishing

Reel in that big one and swap fishing stories with hot chocolate to warm up!

Teen Camp (Ages 13-16)

This is not your typical week away from home where anything goes. Teen camp is an activity-packed five-day experience for our campers. Guidance and spiritual growth comes from our “seasoned” camp professionals. Teen Camp is a cultural and spiritual experience with some projects and fun thrown in too! St. Michael’s Teen camp will give you the opportunity to meet new people, experience teamwork and find your inner leader. You will also have the chance to have some cultural experiences and some spiritual self development and growth.

Projects

The days at teen camp vary from day to day with different projects, trips and liturgical services.  Examples of past projects are travelling to a cemetery to do some maintenance work around the aging grave sites, visit the elderly and listen to their stories of when they were children, cleaning up around camp and preparing some food for youth camp.  All of these projects allowed us to learn about each other in different situations and settings.

Recreation

The recreation portion of the teen program consists of beach time, canoeing and kayaking, movie analysis and a little trek through the wilderness called “Beaver Quest.”

Sports

At St. Michael’s we have opportunity to celebrate different liturgical services throughout the week, such as a Divine Liturgy, Moleben, Akathist and Vespers.  The staff rotate through leading sessions around our annual theme and our staff members have a special way of relating it to our faith and everyday experiences.  These sessions include discussion, question-and-answer and sharing of personal experiences.  The group takes time to reflect on the presentations and build on their spiritual self during this time.

Youth Camp (Ages 8-13)

Come join us for a memorable summer of fun filled activities!  Our youth enjoy cultural and religious programming that help foster an environment of respect, compassion and belonging.  There are also several aquatic and sports activities to enjoy the outdoors and keep active.

Archery

Even our youngest campers learn how to shoot a bulls-eye. We also play fun games like tic-tac-toe, shoot at balloons, and compete in tournaments for points.

Waterfront

St. Michael’s Camp located on the banks of Madge Lake which offers one of the best natural swimming areas in the Park. We have two different activities that our campers can enjoy on our waterfront.

Fun Swim

Relax

Fun Swim is one of our most popular activities. Our waterfront has several different elements, all of which are open everyday.  We can take a break and relax on the beach and also have some fun in the sand.

Canoeing

In canoeing campers learn how to paddle and steer their canoes. Once they learn the basic skills, campers get to canoe along further the lakeside.  Life jackets are required for canoeing. Every waterfront activity is under the close supervision of our camp counselors and adult camp leaders.

Going For a Ride

Sports

Sports enjoyed at the majestic St. Michael’s Camp include baseball, frisbee, tennis, basketball and beach volleyball.  Everyone has a blast playing their favorite sports or learning new ones!

Soccer Championship

Crafts

In Arts & Crafts you can paint almost any wood project you can imagine. We have animals, bird houses, wind twisters, letters, trays, and many more!

Painting

Painting with acrylics, practice on paper, and finally create your own artwork on canvas! You will learn different brush strokes, how to mix your own paint, and even paint landscapes of camp!

Dancing

Although there is no formal dance lessons, there is always a Kolomanka around our campfire where all the campers can showcase their Ukrainian Dance moves.

Dance it Up

 

At St. Michael’s we offer diverse camp programs that are sure to find a match with your family and children.

When you come to camp remember 2 things:
1. RESPECT (for all people and the environment) is our number 1 rule.
2. You will have as much fun as you allow yourself– come ready to have fun!

Send a Kid To Camp…Be a Sponsor

Change a Life!!

Just $35 will send a child to camp for one day and $250 for one week. One camp experience can positively change a child’s life forever.

Children are our future, and the skills learned and relationships fostered at so many camps throughout the country are often life-changing stepping stones on the road to adulthood. Children come to camp from all walks of life, eager to learn, yearning to make new friends, ready to take on new challenges and discover gifts they didn’t know they had.

Please consider helping out children that are less fortunate and need some assistance in getting to camp this summer.  A little amount can go a long way!
