Welcome to our community

This is a special place. You'll feel it in everything we do.

And you can hear it from some of our campers.

It's no accident that Kuriakos has been built and supported by families since 1930.

It's part of our ministry to each other, and the difference we can make in community.

All are welcome here.

We invite you to join us... because WE ALL belong at Kuriakos!

What difference does camp make? All the difference in the world!

Do you have a story you'd like to share? Send it to us! #ThanksToCamp

Land Acknowledgement

We live in Treaty Six, East of the Rockies, between the Athabasca and Red Deer rivers,

on what the Cree call Kinepik, or Snake Lake.

We share and care for this land with Indigenous Peoples who were here before us.

We are ALL Treaty Six people.

With gratitude and mutual respect, Kuriakos acknowledges that we live, work, play and worship on Treaty 6 lands that are ancestral meeting grounds, gathering places, and travel routes for many first nations including the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux and Nakota Sioux. We also acknowledge the Metis people of the Red Deer Metis District within the Battle River Territory who call Treaty 6 home. We respect all people who share, celebrate and care for the Treaty 6 territory of central Alberta and we honour the original caretakers of the land who remind us of the ongoing histories that precede us. We also recognize our shared responsibilities going forward to help bring everyone together on this journey of Truth and Reconciliation.
