Children spend so much time these days inside and mostly sitting down, camp provides a wonderful opportunity to move. Grande Prairie and Area is fortunate to have many quality camps offering a range of innovative programs. There's a lot of fun activities all summer long.

The Grande Prairie Sport Council has assembled a list of Summer Camps in the region. For more information, please take a closer look at these Grande Prairie and Area camp listings.

Upcoming Workshops, Clinics & Seminars


Training series is made possible thanks to  

The Be Fit For Life Centre and the Grande Prairie Sport Council have teamed up with RBC Learn to Play and Makadiff sports grants to help develop a sustainable and healthy sport community in Grande Prairie and surrounding areas. One of the ways we look forward to doing this is by building our leadership capacity by offering FREE workshops on a variety of topics based on Physical Literacy. Whether you are in sport, recreation, education, early childhood, or health…physical literacy speaks to all of us!

You are under no obligation to attend all workshops. You can pick and choose which ones you'd like to participate in or you can choose to do the entire series. It's entirely up to you!

These workshops generally run from $75 - $140 each. Please do your best to attend if you register.
