Notice: Cancellation of 2021 Programs

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with a heavy heart that we have made the difficult decision to cancel our regular spring and fall camp programs for the 2021 season. Please visit our home page for the latest news on COVID-19 impacts to our programs. 

We hope to be able to offer our full slate of programs in 2022. The 2020 camping season dates and fees have been preserved below for reference only.

2020 Spring and Fall Programs

Spring Programs for 2020 are available June 1, 2020 through June 26, 2020
Fall Adult Programs for 2020 are available August 17, 2020 through August 21, 2020

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. New in 2020, we are offering adult hiking and canoeing programs toward the end of August.

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.

Group Camping

$63 + GST per person per day

Partial days are charged at a rate of $58 + GST per person per day
Out-tripping premium: Add $5 + GST per person per day

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.


$80 + GST per person per day

We also offer two off-site group camping programs:

Wilderness Out-Tripping Skills (WOTS) is a backpacking exploration of our northern forest. While learning skills with a map and compass, the group explores the Narrow Hills eskers, valleys, creeks and lakes. Campers are given the opportunity to camp outdoors, cook over open fires, develop wilderness survival skills and enhance personal qualities.

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.


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.

Dates will be held for 30 days, by which time we should be in receipt of a signed application form and booking deposit.

A 50% non-refundable deposit is required 30 days prior to your booked dates. Payment in full is due following your stay at camp.

Make cheques payable to St. John Bosco Camp. Forward all payments to our Saskatoon address. You will be sent a registration package (camper forms, health forms, and “what to bring” list).
