Foothills Camp and Retreat Centre is a non-profit Christian camp owned and operated by the Alberta Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. We are happy to accept campers of any race, religion, or nationality. Our summer youth camp program, which runs from June to August, features the Christian teaching of salvation according to the Gospels.

It is our goal to provide every camper with an experience that supports social and physical growth in a positive Christian atmosphere. The program is designed to assist campers in developing life skills and self-confidence by promoting sportsmanship, emphasizing teamwork, teaching responsibility and building self-esteem. Foothills Summer Camp is staffed with carefully-selected Christian young adults, sensitive to the needs of the individual camper. All counselors are first aid trained and certified. Foothills Camp and Retreat Centre is located on the Little Red Deer River, and provides a variety of natural settings, as well as excellent facilities. It is the perfect place to experience a variety of activities and to embark on an unforgettable journey. Memories created at Foothills Summer Camp will ensure that this will be a summer that lasts forever!
