Between Friends Camp Bonaventure creates a summer full of excitement, friendship and fun. Children and youth thrive at Camp Bonaventure. They are encouraged to challenge and develop their abilities through canoeing, sailing, swimming, arts & crafts, and many other exciting activities and adventures.
Camp Bonaventure is available to children and youth with and without a disability from the age of 4 – 17 years old. Individuals are divided into age-appropriate groups. Activities are customized to all ability levels to maximize enjoyment and help participants challenge and grow their individual potential.
Camp Bonaventure typically operates on a staff to participant ratio of 1:4 and can accommodate participants with a 1:2 to 1:6 ratio. Members who require 1:1 are welcome to participate with the assistance of their Personal Aide.
Due to COVID-19, Between Friends staff are diligently working within the Alberta Health Services guidelines to safely re-open Camp Bonaventure. Staff to Participant Ratios, Personal Aides and Volunteer Opportunities will only be made available once we know more about the restrictions related to operating a day camp in Alberta.
