For the next season, we will be changing some procedures in order to make things more fair for those registering for camp. We will no longer be accepting mail-in forms. On-line registrations will open at 12 midnight, Feb 1st. We will also be building a new camper cabin this year, which will allow us to increase camper enrolment. Thank you for your understanding, and we want to give our love to all campers who were not able to get into Shagabec this year.

2018 Year in Review

Jan 21, 2019

Camp Shagabec has had another record breaking year!  The number of campers keeps going up each year, and we are having to find new ways of accommodating them. The camp saw over 600 young campers over the course of this camping season and over 160 volunteer positions were filled. In addition, the camp had six full-time summer staff members (Alley Mackinnon of Medicine Hat, Heather Caswell of Bracken, Simon Bristow of Eastend, Krista Opheim of Lethbridge, and Dave & Kat Fletcher of Lethbridge) on for the entire summer to manage daily operations of the camp.  Camp Shagabec also hosted two wedding ceremonies this year, and we celebrated the 80th birthday of Shagabec with an open house tea. Although most of our campers and counsellors come from the nearby towns and cities, we do get some from BC, Calgary, Saskatoon, and even one annual camper from Halifax!

This year, two new staff cabins were built, and we also constructed a giant gazebo (which acts a craft centre and performance arts centre). We are currently raising funds to build a much-needed new camper cabin, and to renovate the washhouse site (built in 1970). The renovations to the washhouse will not only give it a necessary/sanitary upgrade, but it will also make the site wheelchair accessible. We do not want to pass the burden of site improvements on to the campers, so we are raising these funds separately, as a capital campaign. If you are interested in making a financial donation, we would certainly appreciate any and all assistance we could get in making these additions to camp happen.
