Camps operated by the Archdiocese

Our two camps are part of the ministry of Youth Evangelization in the Archdiocese.

The facilities and operations have been under review, and on March 12, 2019 Archbishop Smith issued an update on the future of Camp Encounter and Our Lady of Victory Camp (PDF).


Camp Encounter, Lac La Nonne, AB

Camp Encounter is a Catholic-Christian year-round camp located one hour northwest of Edmonton. It is situated on 100 acres of beautiful lakeshore and forest terrain. Rich in history, adventure, and education, we offer year-round programs including a residential summer camp, school programs, and weekend facility rentals.


Our Lady of Victory Camp, Gull Lake, AB

OLVC, located northwest of Red Deer, offers week-long summer camps for youth run by young adults. Facilities include cabins equipped with bunk beds, serviced washrooms including showers, a chapel, a kitchen and complete dining facilities, and a large meeting hall.
