With the trees turning yellow and the leaves about to fall, it's time to start thinking about ... POND HOCKEY! That's right, team. Our third annual 3-on-3 Pond Hockey Tournament is just around the corner, coming up on Saturday, January 14, 2012. The deadline for teams to register is December 15, 2011 and you can find out more information about the tournament on our website: . We have space for 12 teams this year ... don't miss your chance to participate in this crazy fun, ultra-Canadian, day-long event, in support of Camp Evergreen's ministry! You can contact Kerry at if you have any questions. Here are some of the comments last year's participants left us, and a couple pictures: "My favourite fundraiser of the year. A throwback to old school hockey. Well done!" "[I appreciated the] atmosphere of the outdoors. Fresh air. Friends & fellowship." "[I enjoyed] having old time ho

the cabin project is progressing nicely!

Hi everyone, Just a quick note to let you know where things are at with Cabin Fever!, our never-ending cabin replacement project. Last time we talked , the first new cabin was well underway. The building inspector has visited since then and he was happy with the cabin in progress and the future sites we showed him. Yeah! We paused on the first cabin once it was completely weather sealed. The indoor walls are framed, but we haven't done any drywalling or anything, because first we need to do the electrical rough-ins. So, our building crew moved on and started on the second cabin. The pictures below are all of the second cabin and they were taken by Colter. This week, they'll be working on getting the sheeting and such up on the roof of the second cabin and then, the tin. Our friends Harley and Esther are here from Coaldale right now. Harley is a master electrician and he'll be doing all the electrical rough in work on both of the first two cabins (how nice that we can get

roughin' it girls: the statistics dates: july 17-22 or august 7-12 age group: grades 4-6 or 6-8 number of campers: 11 in the first crew, 7 in the second general awesome rating: heaps o' fun! Here's a link to a Roughin' It profile from a couple years ago. In addition to two weeks of Roughin' It Girls, we ran three weeks of Roughin' It Boys. We had twelve campers in each of the Roughin' It Boys camps, and they were led by Dylan, Scott and Ben. Our leaders for the first Roughin' It Girls camp this year were Kim, Chelsea and Jena. Josie, Steph and Laurie led the second group. I don't have pictures of the Roughin' It Boys groups. BUT! I have a whole bunch of great photos from the second Roughin' It Girls crew. Yeah! Here they are ...

Mmmm, juice.

This summer, we received a very generous donation of Oasis juice boxes, from Lassonde Industries, in Calgary . We are so thankful! The juice boxes accompanied our Adventure Classic, Roughin' It and Trails Away campers on their out trips and they helped us (as a not-for-profit organization) keep our grocery bill down a bit! The Adventure kids demonstrated their gratitude with excessive photos of them enjoying their Oasis beverages.

IN PICTURES more adventure classic!

We run three weeks of Adventure Classic each summer: it's an forgettable week in the Ya Ha Tinda, with rafting, hiking, climbing and all sorts of fun. Jasper wrote about Adventure here and we included just a few pictures with that post. Well, Josie, one of our excellent Adventure leaders, gave me a whole stack of photos (thanks, Josie!) and I'm going to share some of them with you. Sadly, I can't figure out how to rotate the portrait pictures. You'll have to bend your neck. (Sorry.)
