Summer 2016 Week 2

Well, since puns seem to be all the rage at Camp Chestermere, let me just say that Week 2 was a very electrifying experience. Literally. A bad thunderstorm rolled through Chestermere on Monday night and there was some of the loudest thunder I've ever heard. Two of our main buildings were hit during the storm. The first lightning strike struck an electrical pole on the Chap and some campers watched as the electricity danced along the power lines. We called emergency services and the fire department came out right away and checked on everything and assured us that we were ok. They also put in a phone call to Fortis Alberta who also came and assured us that the Chap was fine. Then less than 30

Summer 2016 Week 1

AND WE'RE OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have completed Week 1 of Summer 2016 and it was a huge success. Week 1 was a 7 - 11 year old kids camp and we had 89 Overnight Campers, 54 Day Campers and 15 3rd year CLTDs. With Carnival as the theme, we had a great kick off to the summer. There were many highlights from the week and I wish I could share them all but these things take time and there is still lots to do.

Facilities Update (Weekly Update...... sort of)

Hello everyone, So I know it has been a little while since you all have heard from me and if I were to do a regular weekly update then I would end up having to write an epic novel to include everything that has been going on. So, I've decided to break up the updates into smaller bits. Over the next few days, you'll receive a few updates of things that have been happening at Camp Chestermere over the spring. This update will focus on the facilities upgrades we have made. As you're about to see, we have done a ton of work around the site. Our team continues to receive complements on how good the site is looking. You'll hear this a few times throughout this update but thank you to all of those
