In 1980, the Camp Warwa Society was founded with the generous donation of our land by the Warwa Family. The Alberta North Zone Canadian Progress Clubs took on the task to turn the land into a camp, and they founded Camp Warwa.
Camp Warwa is a registered charitable organization (BN: 124220849 RR0001) and society. Camp Warwa is also an accredited member of the Alberta Camping Association.
Located 80km west of Edmonton, Camp Warwa is set on 23 acres of aspen parkland. Poplar trees are the most abundant trees, with occassional birch and spruce trees. Wild rose, dogwood and tiger lillies are also abundant at various times of the year, and strawberry, saskatoon, hazelnut, and high bush cranberry are also plentiful on our property. Weaving through our main forested area is 2km of wooded trails providing an ideal setting for earth education, night hikes, walks in the summer and skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.
Camp Warwa is located on the south shore of Lac Ste Anne. Lac Ste Anne supports a wide variety of aquatic birds, birds of prey and waterfowl, including geese, herons, eagles, ospreys, ducks, grebes, and loons. A near by beaver lodge provdes a great opportunity to see these industrious animals at work.
Camp Warwa takes great pride in exhibiting and maintaining our natural areas. All together our site makes us say: "Camp Warwa: Close to Home, but A World Away."
