Go on an action-packed adventure at summer camp! Located in the heart of the David Thompson Country, Camp Alexo offers a beautiful natural setting for kids to learn, play, and develop healthy relationships.

Our camping programs are geared towards outdoor learning, self development and teamwork.

We believe an outdoor wilderness environment offers unique opportunities to grow and develop young minds. Campers who attend Camp Alexo are able to enjoy a vast array of new experiences, learn lifelong skills, discover new interests, and make new friends.

Our camper to counsellor ratio is 3:1, ensuring every camper has the opportunity to develop a positive relationship with a camp leader. All our counsellors receive appropriate camp and volunteer training, and are screened in accordance to industry standards.

Camp Alexo is a non-denominational accredited camp with the Alberta Camping Association and a member of the Canadian Camping Association.

From the Town of Alexo to Camp Alexo

Prior to the creation and accreditation of the camp in 1984, the area was home to a coal mining “ghost town” known as Alexo. The town and mine operated from the 1920s to 1955 when it was eventually abandoned. To this day there’s still coal beneath Camp Alexo, though geologists estimate it wouldn’t be commercially feasible to extract it.

Because history plays such an important role in our future, and the community connection to the numerous coal mining towns in the area, it’s our goal to share these stories and pass them along to our campers.
