Camp Evergreen is a registered, independent religious society and Christian camp. Our roots are in the Mennonite Brethren Churches of Alberta, and our full Confession of Faith comes from the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches.

Camp Evergreen’s mission to see lives transformed by the power of Jesus is founded on the belief that every individual matters to God and needs God. Camp Evergreen welcomes guests and campers from diverse backgrounds and beliefs. We do not condone the harassment, abuse, or bullying of any person for any reason. Furthermore, we do not support or advocate any action that demeans the dignity of human life. Our commitment is to see that every guest and camper receives treatment marked by love, kindness, and respect, according to the Bible.

Our staff is fundamental to our mission. To ensure that Camp Evergreen does not drift from its mission and purpose, we expect staff in leadership and ministry positions to be in alignment with our Beliefs and Practices, which come from the MB Confession of Faith. We also expect all of our staff to speak and act in a way that does not hinder or misrepresent Camp Evergreen’s mission, vision, or values.
