After 15 years of enjoyable camping
experience at Bow Valley Camp, it
became necessary for us as renters to
search out another camp facility. It was
not long before we found Sunnyside
Camp which suited our needs well.
Sunnyside Camp is located on the east
shores of the beautiful Sylvan Lake, 16
km (10 miles) west of Red Deer, AB.
Their administration welcomed us with
open arms and further favored us with a
week right in the middle of their six
week summer camp program. That
favorable situation continues to this day.
Annually, an average of 200 campers
come together to enjoy a relaxed and an
inspiring week together.
CJM is grateful to Sunnyside Camp for
the long and harmonious relationship we
have enjoyed. 2010 marked 35 years at
this location. 2012 was the 60th
consecutive years of CJM camping
To God be the glory, great things He
1961 was the final year of Family
Bible Kamp at Kootenay Lake. That
same year the first Youth Camp was
held at Bow Valley Camp in
Canmore, Alberta. 1962 was the first
CJM Family Camp at Bow Valley.
The CJM Family Camp has a long and
envious history. It is probably the
closest thing to a truely "family camp"
experienced anywhere. We have had
new-born babes from weeks old to
grandparents into their mid 90's attend
from a few days to the entire week.
CJM camping ministry goes back to
the year 1953. The first location was on
the beautiful shores of Kootenay Lake
near Nelson, BC. Scores of campers
came from the Okanagan Valley,
Vancouver and from southern Alberta to
annually enjoy fellowship, to make new
friends and study God's Word together.
Canmore is located just
east of the entrance to
Banff National Park in
the Canadian Rockies.
