It's back! Our nearly famous family/youth obstacle race! The Tough Camper Run is a 5km(ish) obstacle race at Camp Evergreen. You get to roll in mud, scale obstacles, throw frisbees, and climb over canoe bridges. It's a heap load of fun and ends with a delicious supper at camp.

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.

WHO ARE WE?

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!

I'M A RACER

We have three categories of racers for the Tough Camper Run. Families, Individuals, and Youth Groups. We're encouraging every racer/team to dress up in fun costumes (it is camp, afterall), raise some funds for camp, and come ready for a fun time. The race is approximately 5km with optional obstacles scattered throughout. We've had racers as young as 8 months old strapped to their mum or dad's chest!

There is no age restriction for racers. Obstacles are spread throughout the coarse and are geared to all ages. Larger, more difficult obstacles always have an easier or smaller option.

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

RAISING MONEY FOR CAMP

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.

I'M A SPECTATOR

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.

WHEN IS THE EVENT
June 13, 2020. Day-of event registration will take place at 11:30am sharp at the Welcome Centre. Start times will be posted for each category of racer on the day of the race.uu

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

WHY
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 31st, 2020.

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