The development of Camp Wright began in 1968. The Camp was named Camp Wright after Dr. Edwin Wright the resident doctor for Athabasca and one of the founders of this training area. Our facility is located on approximately 122 hectares of wilderness. This Camp has been carefully planned to bring awareness of the natural environment and provide a training site for youth. We are in the wilderness and must respect our surroundings and its inhabitants.
Our main users are the Air Cadets but also we have other youth organizations, weddings, family reunions, educational or outdoor retreats who come and enjoy our camp.
Many of our buildings are from the 1960/70's and need repairs to maintain a level of safety.
Camp Wright is privileged to have dedicated volunteers (some former cadets) who have assisted in the restoration and maintenance of Camp Wright. This camp is run 100% by volunteers year-round.
As donors, you will be recognized on our website as STAR DONORS and acknowledged at our yearly AGM.
Help us maintain this legacy that Dr Edwin Wright started in 1968.
