Welcome to our community

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


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.

Faith Centred

Faith teachings and practices are nor peripheral or intermittent aspects of the camp experience, but rather are experienced as intertwined in all other characteristics.


"Hello! My son had a really good time at Kuriakos this year and grew in his faith while he was there.

Thank you! Does Kuriakos have a church in Calgary you are affiliated with? Thanks for your help!"

- Camper parent

Safe Space

The strong sense of safety at camp includes physical, but also an emphasis on emotional safety. Participants describe camp as a place where they could be themselves without fear of judgement.


"Our daughter has been richly blessed by Camp Kuriakos - as a camper for 9 years, followed by 2 years as a SIT, Gapper, and Kitchen Staff. We are so thankful for the Christian education and fellowship she received at camp and the strong moral compass that guides her today."

- Camper family

Participatory

The camp environment emphasizes experience and agency. Participants learn and grow through active, kinesthetic activities that employ their body, mind, and soul.

Unplugged from Home

Camp exists in a location set apart that provides physical and emotional distance from environments that participants consider normal, allowing them to see the world and their place in it differently.


"(Our kids) had an excellent week at camp.

From the bottom of my hear, thanks to you and the rest of your staff for the prayerful leadership, dedication, and compassion you showed them.

Your ministry is so important!"

- Camper parent

Relational

Camp experience is framed in a relational environment that includes living together, meeting new people, practicing reconciliation, and encountering the other in face-to-face interaction.


"Heaven is going to be full of happiness, friends,

and family, without sorrow or suffering."
