**New** Sundays at Deerfoot! Gathering together at 10:15 am

It’s Time for Camp!

Summer DiscoveryCamps @FAC Calgary

We’re turning up the volume at Discovery Camps to remind each kid that they can have confidence because of Jesus.  When kids begin to see themselves the same way Jesus sees them, then real confidence begins to take root and grow. At Discovery Camp’s Press Play VBS, children will learn that because of Jesus, they can have confidence because…

  • They are known
  • They belong
  • They are forgiven
  • They can change
  • They can make a difference!

It will be a memorable week where kids will learn these foundational Truths and begin to understand the base of their confidence.


The last day to register for DiscoveryCamps @HOME has passed, but we have a few extra kits. If you’re interested in hosting a camp, please email us at discoverycamps@faccalgary.com.

Can I complete a child registration if I am not the child’s parent or legal guardian?
No. Only a parent or legal guardian may complete the registration. We must have the parent’s consent on the medical and photo release.

I have a child with diverse needs. Can they participate in camp?
We do our best to accommodate children with diverse needs by pairing them with a “1-on-1” volunteer. Please contact us when you register to clarify the type of assistance your child will require.

Can my child be in a group with their friends?
Each child may request one friend or family cohort to be placed in the same group as them. Friends/cohorts must be close in age. Although we cannot guarantee friend requests, we do our best to accommodate them.

Are there scholarships?
A limited number of scholarships are available. For more information please contact us.

What if my child wants to change groups during camp?
Parents can request that their child be moved to another group by speaking to a DiscoveryLand Staff member. Although we cannot guarantee that we can change the group your child has been assigned to, we do our best to accommodate them.

What should my child wear or bring to camp and what should we expect on the first day?
Please make sure your child wears comfortable clothes and shoes, brings a water bottle, small snack, a light jacket, and wears sunscreen and bug spray each day of camp. If AHS guidelines still require masks indoors, please send a mask with your child.

When your child checks-in on the first day of camp, they will receive a nametag and their group assignment.
