Gotta love it! Sagitawa has expanded into northern Alberta. High Prairie Wilderness Camp is operating two camps this
summer with some help from our seasoned Clayhurst site staff. This is so good for everyone!
That’s a “Stretch”!
Last summer our 2 week "Stretch it Out" was a hit. So we are adding a second one. Twice the fun and twice the learning.
Tell your friends - limited space! [Note: Campers stay the weekend, but activities will take place closer to camp.]
2 Adventure Weeks!
Remember the SWAT "Adventure Week"? Five day-trips to local sites? It was the SWAT fave, so we are are doing 2 weeks for
2016. Week 1 checks out five locations in and around Moberly. Week 2 does the same, but with sites closer to Tumbler Ridge. Wow, so many
destinations to check out!
New Skill - Crafts!
We have a new craft cabin - and crafts can now be chosen as a skill or still done as a free time activity.

Is continually changing. Let us know if you can't find something.
God's greatest blessing in the lives of people is almost always through relationship with other people. People give, share
quality time, and offer love and hope. In fact, "He who does not love his neighbour, cannot love God."
Camp Sagitawa wants to share God's limitless love with people. You might ask how we do so with with limited resources. The
answer is that over the years many people like yourself have chosen to share their love for people by helping us. It is through the help of these
people, that our resources are multiplied. We are thankful.
How can you help us bless the lives of people through Christian Camping?
Why would a BC camp be the head office for a site in High Prairie?
Sagitawa Christian Camping Society was established in November 1967, and now operates out of 4 sites.
Main Site - Moberly Lake, BC: The first camp ever offered was a week of camp for boys in the Moberly Lake area. They then added
a week for girls, family camps, youth camps. Today we are a co-ed camp still in Moberly.
Sagitawa Trail Rides - Clayhurst, BC Sagitawa Trail Rides began with mountain expeditions, and eventually moved onto a site in
the Clayhurst, BC area.
SWAT - Sagitawa Wilderness Adventure Trips: has no particular site, other than in the wilderness and rivers of northern BC.
HPWC - High Prairie Wilderness Camps: is based at a site in High Prairie, AB. The site director wanted to start a camp in that area,
near their own property. Aaron had helped at Moberly and Trail Rides for some time now. Yet he appreciated the value all the work already
done at the main site. So they asked Sagitawa whether we would be willing to accept their vision for a BC camp.
The main site does not benefit in any way from the finances that come in for HPWC. We see ourselves as guiding lights along a journey that
we have experiece in. We offer HPWC experience, standards, policies, and accreditation. The camp fits our vision and embraces our vision of
building solid safe relationships that can last forever.
We value relationship, community and mentoring, as reflected by the two people in the canoe, and the one in front pointing
something out to the one in the back. The canoe speaks of recreation, and the paddling action has slowed to represent the
moments in life that are more important than activity, and yet the teaching component is far stronger when nested in the
recreational environment, because it brings people together. The water reflection speaks of the many opportunities at camp
to contemplate life. The small "CS" on the canoe, is a general reference to Camp Sagitawa in general (whether Trail Rides,
SWAT, or the Main Camp.)
The Christian component is not shown specifically by design. First, it is already evident by our name, 'Sagitawa Christian
Camps'. Second, we do not wish to compartmentalize our faith, but rather teach how to live it through all parts of our lives.
The discussion in the canoe may relate to biblical elements, or it may be about getting along with others, or simply pointing
out the need to take notice of the beauty around us. All of those elements are important in the way we behave as Christians.
