The Northern Call Fundraising Dinner 2016

The October 22nd Northern Call Dinner was a rousing success. Thank you to all of the folks who attended, the volunteers who worked hard to make it run smoothly, and the individuals and companies that generously donated items for the silent auction.

The winner of the 50/50 draw was Hilary Johnstone of La Ronge. Hilary chose to donate her entire winnings back to the Camp, which is an incredibly generous and giving act, and we can not even begin to express our sincere thanks for her thoughtfulness!

Bosco Needs Your Help!

Did you know that camper fees cover only 50% of the actual cost of sending a child to camp?

The rest of the cost is covered through grants and fundraising, and the Board of Directors works very hard throughout the year to fill this gap. However, in these economic times, everyone is feeling the pressure, and the gap has been harder to fill.

Bosco needs your help. Did you know that you can receive a charitable donation receipt for a donation of $20 or more? Even a small donation will go a long way to support the good work that we have done for 57 years!

You can donate now at the link below or visit the donation page for more information!

New Phone Number!

Our camp office will now be located right at camp during the summer months. We can be reached at the usual number, 306-426-2227 during the summer season. Our year-round number has changed and you can now reach us toll-free at 1-844-SJBOSCO (1-844-752-6726)!

What are YOU doing this summer?

Do you love "roughing it" in the outdoors? Do you enjoy getting away from the city? Are you looking for an exciting new adventure? Then St. John Bosco Wilderness Camp is for you!

Nestled on the shores of Zeden and Ispuchaw Lakes in Narrow Hills Provincial Park, Saskatchewan (see our map), SJBWC operates primarily as a summer camp for youth ages 9 - 17. The focus at camp is having fun learning and living in the outdoors. Our core experience is the out-trip, where campers have the opportunity to experience rustic wilderness travel and camping. Through these experiences, campers make lifelong friends and develop a new appreciation for God and nature.

St. John Bosco Wilderness Camp is an invitation to people to live, learn and share with each other in the natural environment that God has provided us with and to develop a greater awareness and responsibility towards it. Through this medium, campers are encouraged to grow physically, mentally and spiritually, realizing God in all aspects of life. We are people experiencing people in God’s nature.
