We're urging anyone who has ever been impacted by Camp Chestermere to come alongside us to help Keep Camp Alive! We have started a fundraising initiative that is focused on bringing back both Year Round and Seasonal Staff while also paying for the basic needs of the camp through this COVID-19 pandemic. We need 1500 people to donate $25 a month for the next 8 months, or to give a one time donation of $200. If we reach our goal, we will be able to continue on Camp Chestermere's legacy to Summer 2021 and beyond.

We've now launched our newest fundraising campaign to help us do that: #LegoCampC which stands for 'Let Everyone Grow Our Camp Chestermere'. This fundraiser is designed to highlight three projects that we believe will drastically improve what we do at Camp Chestermere. Currently, we are fundraising for the following two projects: New Furnaces and Air Conditioning & Renovating the Hex. If you'd like to know more about our #LegoCampC Campaign, click here...
We believe that every child should have an opportunity to attend camp. It is our philosophy that no camper should be refused access to camp because of the financial circumstances, and we endeavour to honour each request. With your help we can give even more children the gift of camp! Contributions can be made in any amount allowing the opportunity to fund complete registrations or even a small portion of a single camp registration.
We accept online contributions with the help of ATB Financial. The system is simple to use, accepts most forms of electronic payment and will send you a charitable tax receipt for eligible contributions. Simply click the 'donate now' button below, and select the area to which you would like to donate.
Camp Chestermere is a Registered Canadian Charity, and thus offers generous tax benefits for eligible contributions (typically anything over $20). For more information on the tax benefits and implications of various contributions please visit Revenue Canada's website.
Our Seasonal Staff team is made up of many enthusiastic young men and women who give up their time during the summer because they are passionate about leading, teaching, and exploring faith with the young campers who come here. Unfortunately, due to available funds, the pay for these young leaders is only $125 dollars per week. Our staff put in many long hours during the day to ensure every camper has a fantastic camp experience, and their passion for the kids, the camp, and for God make it worthwhile for them to spend a summer at camp despite the low pay.
However, $125 a week doesn't go far to pay for cost of living, education, and future endeavors. With your help they can earn more by receiving donations through the Staff Support Program. Please help our staff by giving to our Staff Support Program so that this young generation can continue to grow and develop into strong leaders of tomorrow through education and service.
