Surprise Lake Camp

Reconnect at Surprise Lake Camp.

Situated east of Edson, Alberta on Surprise Lake (Sang Lake), the camp has operated as a kids’ summer camp for over 65 years. It is managed by the Surprise Lake Society.

Now, the camp has a new direction!

Surprise Lake Camp is an environmentally-friendly community hall-type venue set in a semi-wilderness setting. It is available for rental by groups interested in facilitating workshops, retreats, club meetings, or for family gatherings.

A new direction means having a new vision. Our vision includes:

  • Operating the camp as a rental facility. Organizations including service groups schools, scouts, cadets, musical and artistic groups can facilitate their own activities in a beautiful and natural setting.
  • Collaborating with community groups in the ongoing operation and maintenance of Surprise Lake Camp.
  • Promoting the value and importance of education and stewardship of our environment.
  • Giving the community the opportunity to “reconnect naturally” with themselves and with others in a beautiful and natural setting.
