Our goal at Camp Van-Es is to help children explore faith in Jesus Christ in a natural setting. We offer a safe environment to experience God, to grow spiritually and, of course, to have fun!

Located just 20 minutes southeast of Edmonton on 100 acres of wooded land on the shores of South Cooking Lake. See the location page for a map.

Camp Van-Es

With modern banquet facilities, an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, an auditorium, a rustic and historic chapel, and miles of nature trails, we are well-equipped to host an excellent summer camp.

Founded in 1940, Camp Van-Es has been an important part of the ministry of the Moravian Church in Canada. Each summer, camps for grades 1 to 12+ are offered through the Moravian Church and are open to all children.

Our facilities are also available year-round for rental at reasonable rates and are ideal for:

  • Staff meetings and professional development days
  • Birthday parties using the indoor pool
  • Family reunions in the food services building and auditorium
  • Weddings in the chapel
  • Workshops and retreats
