Approach

(Ages 9-18)

Website is currently being updated! Please note some information will change!

Welcome to Approach! Stillwood’s newest, and out-dooriest camp!

A new trail branching off from the main parking lot leads up to a beautiful new area, where the life of Approach begins. The purpose of our highly anticipated Outdoor Adventure camp is for youth to be able to truly experience the outdoors, to get to try a new range of exciting activities, to have a closer, more intimate community, to cook your own food over fires and sleep in busses, and to be able to learn useful outdoor skills. God’s creation thrives just a short walk off the beaten path, and we’re inviting YOU to come share in it! So come, explore, experience, and become immersed in the world of Approach with us. It’s camp like you’ve never experienced it before!

Because of the small size of Approach camp, all campers attending will spend a lot of time together. It is likely, but not guaranteed that you will be in the same tent as your friend.

Campers unable to attend a session will receive a refund, less an administrative fee of $70 plus applicable taxes, provided our office is notified by Friday, four weeks before the start of their camp. Your deposit or any payments made towards their camp fees cannot be applied to ANY other registrations. Another camper may not be substituted in place of a cancelled spot. We regret that barring any mishap or illness, no refunds can be made after this time.

All questions can be directed to our front office at info@stillwood.ca or 1.800.507.8455. From there your request will be directed to the appropriate department. Or click here for our staff directory.
