Blue Bronna Wilderness Camp exists to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a wilderness setting.
We are located southwest of Longview, AB in the Rocky Mountains. We operate summer programs for youth, adults and rental groups. We have two facilities: Willow Creek which is in the foothills and Coat Creek which is in the mountains. Programs include: youth camps, horsemanship camps, horse pack trips for youth and adults, family camps, fly fishing and quad camp, plus rental groups from The Mustard Seed, Youth For Christ and other such groups that work with the homeless, troubled youth or folks out of prison. We are a small camp with 25 campers per session and 12 staff. Staff rotate between the two sites and have a hand in all that we do. Even though they may come as a Counselor or Wrangler, they will at times be called upon to help in other areas of the camp.
Activities include: horseback riding, pack trips, rock climbing, canoeing, mountain hiking, archery, games, God Talks, fun!!.

2) Staff have the opportunity to raise an additional $1,800 per month through friends, family and church. We provide you with a letter that you hand out and they mail the funds to the ranch. You receive what comes in for you up to the $1,800 per month .

The last number of summers, some Canadian staff who were in school the previous year and returned to full time studies in the fall – received a government grant that paid $1,600 per month. The grant is not guaranteed every year. This year the grant is available to all Canadian citizens who are between the ages of 18-30 regardless of whether they are going back to school or not.
