NEW FOR 2013! Intermediate Girls Camp will give you a taste of all the wild and wonderful things that make camp! You will climb to new heights on the climbing wall, get your craft on, leap off the dock into the waters of Crimson Lake and gather each night for singing and sharing at campfire. You will experience the great outdoors in your 2-night out-trip. We will celebrate your journey and play hard until the end!
Out-trips feature a sampling of the different activity options offered in our Sr. Girls and Girls Voyage camps. Explore the land on horseback, work as a team on a canoe, notice the flowers as you hike on foot - you get to experience the thrill of it all!

From the first hint of dawn to the last call of the loons, a day at Senior Girls Camp is packed with friends, laughter and adventure! Seize the opportunity to spend two weeks of community living in a cabin and experience some of the classic moments of Senior Girls Camp:
- Going for paddles along the shores of Crimson Lake
- Getting up early to catch and feed the horses
- Taking climbing skills from the wall to the rock
- Belting out campfire classics each night
- Challenging ourselves in the back country on multi-day out-trips
- Exploring the Christian faith through relationships and creation
The first five days at Senior Girls are spent in camp. Catch up with old friends and make a whole bunch of new ones! Work hard at developing your skills in Horseback riding, Canoeing or Backpacking with your cabin group in preparation for your out-trip. Then, the out-trip! The Out-trip is the heart of the Senior Girls experience. Take what you’ve learned at camp out to the backcountry. Spend your next four or five days either Horseback riding, River Canoeing or Backpacking in the mountains with your friends and experienced leaders. This will be a physical, emotional and spiritual experience that will push you to grow in new ways. As a step along the adventure, all campers in Grade 8 will spend their out-trip backpacking and setting a good foundation of skills before choosing to add canoeing or riding in Grade 9 and above. Warning: campers may get so hooked on backpacking that they never try another out-trip option.
Return to camp for the final three days and CELEBRATE! All the cabin groups reunite at camp with unique stories from their adventures. Story-telling, feasting, slideshows and relaxing abound. Make the most of the last days of camp because they always pass so quickly!

When? July 1 - 13
Fee? $650 (+GST)
Dictionary.com defines leadership as “a person who guides or directs a group,” and to lead as, “to go before or with to show the way.”
At Pioneer Ranch, we define leadership as “guiding and influencing others to be all that they were created to be, to make an impact for the sake of God’s Kingdom”. LIT (Leaders in Training) is a program designed to teach & develop personal character and leadership ability. Through Bible study, discussion, prayer, reflection, journaling, adventure, a weeklong back-country out-trip, skill development and much more, we seek to know more about ourselves, our God and this wonderful mysterious journey of life. You will be challenged, developed, tired & ultimately changed.
