Building Lives Worth Living

Hope Mission Operates 2 Christian Summer camps which provide a summer camp experience for kids from single parent, foster and group homes.


Brightwood Ranch

220 acres of rolling hills located one hour west of Edmonton, Alberta.  We operate programs for youth ages 6-17 through 6 day resident and outtripping camps.  Our mainsite focuses on building relationships with kids through dinner cook outs, overnight campouts, cabin group campfires and other small group activities.  Brightwood runs in-house leveled horse camps for one, two, four and eight weeks.  These include personal knowledge and riding skills, teaching young kids to ride, day riding trips and a week-long trip to ride in the mountains.   We also run youth development programs for one, two, four and eight weeks.  These include personal development, learning about and teaching youth, and an outdoor educational component (tubing down the river, lake and river canoe trips, camping, and hiking in the mountains).


Camp Hope

104 acres located 20 minutes west of Calgary, Alberta near Bragg Creek.  We operate 8 weeks for youth ages 6-15 through 6 day resident camps.  Children sleep in Tipis and focus on building relationships, outdoor activities, and wilderness skills.  We also run a Leadership Development Program for one, two or four weeks.  This includes personal development, skill development, servant leadership, learning about and teaching kids and youth, and outdoor education which includes some off-site trips to hike in the mountains.
