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. Each of 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.

We acknowledge that Camp Alexo resides on Treaty 6 territory, the ancestral and traditional lands of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, as well as the Métis people. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit who stewarded these lands for generations before us, and are grateful to our regional Elders who guide us yesterday, today, and tomorrow. We recognize the history of the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we now steward through Camp Alexo and it’s programs.

Registrations are open! You can now view our schedule and have the chance to reserve your week(s) at Camp Alexo with a minimum $50 deposit by clicking the “Register for Camp” button of the top of this page. Monthly payments can also be accepted.

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.
