At the Main Site
Base camps are offered for all age groups and take place on Camp Evergreen’s main site which house our modern cabins, kitchen and dining hall, washroom facilities and indoor/outdoor activity facilities.
What will I get to do at base camp?
Camp Evergreen offers an awesome array of activities including:
High Ropes & Challenge Courses
Building & Engineering
Arts & Crafts
Older campers will get to spend dedicated time throughout the week in their favorite activities of their choosing. Trail Blazer campers will get to choose two Semi-Pro Skills while Ignite and Impact campers will choose either two Semi-Pro Skills or one Pro Skill to develop. Register early as some skills have limited availability. Register for Base Camp.
Younger campers in our Sparks, Jr. Explorers and Explorers programs will spend their time at summer camp trying out all that we have to offer.
Where will I sleep and What's for Dinner?
Campers will stay in groups along with two leaders in our newly built cabins. The cabins are in close proximity to washroom facilities and have bunk beds for a maximum of 12 people. Our cabin leaders are amazing. They make sure campers are having the best week of their summer by ensuring safety and facilitating fun.
Our kitchen staff prepares three, delicious homemade meals each day as well as an evening snack. Campers will be well fueled for all their activities with balanced, age appropriate options. At Camp Evergreen the bacon is plentiful, the pizza is legendary and the homemade granola bars don’t last long.
WHAT IS THE SPIRITUAL ATMOSPHERE LIKE?
We want our campers to grow not only physically, mentally and socially, but spiritually as well. Twice each day, our base campers will come together as a large group to sing, listen to the guest speaker and learn about God at chapel sessions. Our leaders will facilitate safe sharing and discussion time after each chapel session as well as use opportunities throughout the week to show how God is present in our everyday lives.
