Fun! Adventure! New friends! Our Junior program for ages 8-10 is a shortened six-day version of our Intermediate program based at main camp. Nestled in the pines, while tenting on Zeden and Ispuchaw Lakes, campers get a taste of wilderness living. Morning might be spent paddling silently to get close to a beaver lodge, while in the afternoon we will switch into high gear for a rowdy game of flags! The evening activities include liturgy and singing in the chapel, then back to the campsite for cocoa and snacks around the campfire. Juniors will go for a one-night overnight hike on foot and live with nature hands-on and close-up.

ALE is a 24-day leadership development program for campers ages 15-17. It is St. John Bosco’s premiere camping program and our greatest adventure. Campers spend 18-20 days hiking and canoeing in the northern Saskatchewan wilderness.

Surrounded by Mother Nature, with only your group to rely on, you will discover and develop your own personal skills and talents. This experience can build deep and lasting friendships and lead to greater awareness of oneself and others. While hiking, canoeing and camping you will hone your wilderness skills, explore group dynamics and have opportunities to develop and show your leadership skills. The leadership training you experience on ALE will equip you to return to Bosco as a valued member of our staff.
