St. John Bosco Wilderness Camp is situated in the Narrow Hills Provincial Park, approximately 150km northeast of Prince Albert. Operating as a public summer camp in July and August, our focus in the spring is on school and youth group camping.
We offer a wide variety of activities to enhance your camping experience. In our main camp area, enjoy activities such as canoeing, swimming, sports, archery and Naturelore. Explore the nearby forest on day or night hikes, overnight hikes, stargazing, or sunrise experiences. Your days are filled with fun and adventure, but there’s also time to soak up some sun on the beach. You can watch the sun set while listening to loons or sit quietly beside a glowing campfire reflecting on the day’s events. You can choose all of the activities or only a few.
School Groups • Youth Groups • Retreats • Leadership Training • Engagement/Marriage Encounters • Other Groups
A visit to St. John Bosco Wilderness Camp is truly a unique experience. The outdoor camping experience allows you a chance to re-discover yourself and see others in a new way, or to build group or family closeness. Your group will be warmly welcomed and our competent staff will strive to accommodate your every need. Come join us!

Use our facilities for a day, a weekend, a week, or as long as you wish. Programming can be as structured as your group desires. We can provide full programming, including meals, accommodation, group leaders, and all camp activities, or you can use our facilities with only a minimal number of our staff on site.
We also offer an off-site group camping program. Canoe Out-Tripping Skills (COTS) is a challenging, fast-action canoeing program held on the beautiful lakes and river systems of northern Saskatchewan. COTS includes instruction in canoeing, packing food, outdoor cooking, and many other wilderness skills.
Group COTS: $95 + GST per person per day
Bookings can be made by phone or email. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis. The camp office can be reached year round.

We typically ask for a $1,000.00 deposit at time of booking depending on the size of the group. Payment in full is due following your stay at camp once exact camper numbers are known.
