We hope you and your families are eagerly anticipating the upcoming summer camp at Yowochas!

Our 2024 Summer Camp Guide provides all the program dates and information for this year. In 2024, we’re excited introduce even more ways for you and your loved ones to enjoy Camp Yowochas, including a variety of fun and inclusive specialty weekends that you can enjoy with your family and friends.

Registration will open in phases as usual, on the following dates:

  • December 15, 2023 – Returning families
  • January 1, 2024 – New families

Each registration requires a $50 non-refundable and non-transferrable deposit. Registration is exclusively online, and we accept payments via Visa and MasterCard. Please be aware that prices do not include GST.

Once your program is confirmed later this spring, you’ll have 14 days from the date of confirmation to pay the remaining balance of your registration fees. After this period, your spot will be made available for others to register.

Don’t wait to register! We had more than 1,000 kids on our waitlist last year.

We look forward to welcoming many of you and your campers throughout the year! We can’t wait to see those familiar faces.

Important policy updates

In light of the disruptions caused by forest fires last year, we’re updating our booking agreement and air quality policy, effective immediately. These changes are intended to offer more flexibility and clarity moving forward.

Updated Booking Agreement:

Original Policy: A full refund of the deposit, minus a $50 administrative fee, is available if a cancellation occurs with 60 or more days’ notice. There is no refund for cancellations made less than 60 days in advance.

New Addition to Policy: In the event of unforeseen circumstances like natural disasters or wildfires, we will hold deposits for rebooking within the same calendar year. If a group does not rebook within the year, the deposit will be forfeited.

Air Quality Policy:

We continuously monitor local air quality. Although our rural location often enjoys better conditions than Edmonton, we take precautionary measures when the air quality index exceeds 7:

  • We modify high-intensity activities to less strenuous ones.
  • Activities may be moved indoors (e.g., indoor lunches) to ensure the safety and comfort of all participants

Our staff is prepared to accommodate anyone needing indoor respite, and we are particularly vigilant about campers with respiratory conditions.

Please note, there is no air quality measuring station directly at Camp Yowochas. We typically refer to the Genesee station to the south and use the St. Albert station for cross-reference. We encourage schools and groups to contact us directly for the most accurate local air quality updates.

For any inquiries about these policies, please email We appreciate your understanding and continued support. We look forward to a safe and enjoyable year at Camp Yowochas.
