Calling all families, individuals, and youth groups! On June 9th - get ready to run through the forest, over obstacles, and through the mud to raise money for camp! You will not want to miss this race!

We're doing something new at Camp Evergreen! The Tough Camper Run has been a dream of our for a number of years and we're making happen with your help in 2018. The Tough Camper Run will be a 1km-3km-5km obstacle fundraising race that happens at Camp Evergreen on June 9th.

Our vision at Evergreen is to draw kids, youth and families to Christ; the support raised in the Tough Camper Run will support this vision! We are inviting families, individuals, and youth groups to partner with us by raising pledges and racing to See Lives Transformed.


CAMP EVERGREEN is a not-for-profit year-round camp 14 kilometres south of Sundre, Alberta. We exist to share the good news of Jesus with everyone who sets foot on our site!  We offer week-long sleep away camps for kids aged 6-17 in July and August each year.  In the spring, fall and winter, our camp is open to guest groups.  We also run several annual retreats and family camps, featuring speakers, worship and lots of fun!


We have three categories of racers for the Tough Camper Run. Families, Individuals, and Youth Groups. We're encouraging every racer to dress up in a fun costume (it is camp, afterall), raise some funds for camp, and come ready for a fun time. The race is split into three sections, each being slightly harder than the previous. Racers will have the choice to continue racing in each section or to finish after the 1km or 3km sections to cheer on the other racers.

There is no age restriction for racers. Stage 1 of the race is about 1km long and includes our first obstacle section. These obstacles will be specifically geared to our smallest and youngest racers. Families of all ages will be able to participate in this section. Stage 2 will be more challenging but still doable for racers as young as 7-10 years old. Stage 3 will be our hardest section and will complete the 5km course.

Racers are encouraged to do as much as they feel comfortable completing. We will have staff and water stations throughout the course.


The Tough Camper Run is a fundraiser. We have set a goal of raising $25,000 which means we are challenging each racer to raise atleast $200, even the wee little racers. We know it's a big challenge but we also believe that it's possible. When you register for the race, we will send you a package of information on the race, the obstacles, and strategies to raise money.

There will be a $20 participant fee that is not tax deductible.


Spectators are FREE. We are looking forward to this being an awesome family event. Invite your friends and family to cheer you on. The day will conclude with supper.

June 9, 2018. Day-of event registration will take place at 1:00PM sharp at the Welcome Centre. Start times will be posted for each category of racer on the day of the race.

We are building the race course right here at Camp Evergreen. 

Camp Evergreen's Tough Camper Run raises funds to supplement our operating budget, so we can keep the fees charged to our summer campers and retreat participants affordable, while continuing to offer high quality programming, using safe, exciting and strong infrastructure.  Operating funds cover everything from ropes for the climbing wall, feed for the horses and arrows for the archery range to the money we need to bring in great speakers, fantastic worship bands and maintain a top-notch staff team.

Racers are encouraged to Register by May 15th, 2018.

Let's race to see Lives Transformed by the Power of Jesus at Camp Evergreen!
