Tough Camper Run 2020

It's back! Last year we had dozens of families run our crazy fun and challenging race to raise funds for our programs. If you are looking to get out of the house and have some safe distanced fun with your family, this is the event for you. Join us on September to run through the forest, over obstacles, and through the mud to raise money for camp! You will not want to miss this race!

Our Tough Camper Run Returns!


For the third year running we are hosting our Tough Camper Run! Covid-19 has caused Camp to lose much of our revenue this year and we are looking to fundraise support to keep camp going. At the same time we want to see anyone and everyone out at camp to enjoy this fun race and experience time in God's creation.

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! Currently Covid-19 has put many of these groups and events on hold but we are praying that we can resume full time groups soon and finding alternative ways to serve in the mean time.


Anyone is welcome to sign up to race in the tough camper race! 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 involves running through trails all across our site and completing obstacles as you go.

There is no age restriction for racers. Obstacles will vary in difficulty so there should be something for everyone in the family. 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 at least $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 information on the race, fundraising information, 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.

September 19, 2020. Day-of event registration will take place at 1:00pm sharp at the Welcome Centre. Start times will be staggared to allow for physical distancing between families. You will recieve your race start time in an email before the race date. Supper will be provided following the race at 5:30pm.

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. This year due to covid-19 we have had a major loss in revenue and so we have a special need for more funds to keep camp going for the future.

Racers are encouraged to Register by September 15, 2020.

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