Notice: Changes to Programs due to COVID-19

In light of the updated Reopen Saskatchewan plans from the provincial government announced May 27, we are very excited to announce that St. John Bosco Wilderness Camp will be running limited camps this summer. Due to the short notice and ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, our slate of program offerings is reduced and programs will be adapted to meet all Saskatchewan Health Authority recommendations.

This year, we will only be able to offer our senior out-tripping programs for Saskatchewan residents only. Due to our limited ability to safely distance groups at main camp, we will regrettably not be able to accommodate junior or intermediate campers nor out-of-province campers. We hope to be able to resume our usual programs next year.

Camper registrations are now open, with dates and fees available on our summer programs page. If you are interested in working at camp this year, please see our jobs page for more information.

PS: The pandemic has put Bosco in a difficult financial situation. If you are able to help us pay the bills and keep camp going, please consider making a donation today. Direct e-transfer donations can be made to payments@johnboscocamp.com. Charitable donation receipts are available for donations over $30. For other ways to donate, please see our donations page.
