Notice: Changes to Programs Due to COVID-19

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, St. John Bosco Wilderness camp ran limited programs with limited staff in 2021. Activities which normally took place in-camp like liturgies, opening/closing ceremonies, communal meals, etc. were suspended or adapted to meet all Saskatchewan Health Authority recommendations. Our usual programs were all shortened by 3 days and program start dates were staggered to minimize the number of groups in main camp at once.

We will be continuing to monitor the pandemic situation moving into summer 2022. This page will be updated when more information is available about the viability of operating camp in 2022.
