Kuriakos and Covid-19

While taking all recommended and necessary precautions for the health and safety of our campers, we continue our preparations for a wonderful summer.


We continue to follow recommendations from Alberta Health. These recommendations will surely evolve over time, and we are optimistic that in three months we will be in a position to offer summer programming as planned.


While we believe in the life-changing power of camp, we encourage families to make a decision that is right for them.


We will provide updates and review program offerings as the situation progresses.


We hope that you are staying healthy during this challenging time, and staying connected through phone calls and virtual options to the communities you participate in.

Social distance is important. Spiritual connectedness is crucial to helping us all during these difficult days! Stay connected with your faith community and with Kuriakos during this time.


As we know from Psalm 46, God is our refuge and strength. In times of uncertainty and anxiety, we know we can talk with one another and with God about our situations. We pray for God's work through each person to care for one another, pray for one another, and live in grace and peace each day.
