Indigenous summer camps
Castle Provincial Park, Alberta
Camp Nookoowai, Blackfoot for “my home”, has served our indigenous families in Southern Alberta in the areas of Lethbridge, Pincher Creek, and Cardston for the past 26 years.
We serve children from the Blood, Piikani, Eden Valley, Morley,Tsuut’ina, and Siksika reserves.
The kids often said camp has been their home away from home. We share life and our testimony of Jesus with the kids and it has become their home.
Last year as restrictions allowed, we held day camps on the Piikani reserve in Brocket. What a joy to see the kids run from their homes to join us.
Playing games, telling stories, and sharing the gospel of Jesus we quickly connected with the kids. Then hearing Mel’s heart and warm thank you and he mentioned the impact will last months for the church in the heart of the community.
We plan to move back towards a larger camp structure this summer. We are hopeful to continue running events and youth days in the fall and throughout the winter.
