Name of creator
A unique Moravian-run facility, Camp Van Es owes its existence to the vision of the late Reverend Samuel Wedman. Through his efforts, a small camp was established in 1940 on five acres of land donated by the Fred W. Williams family. In the beginning, programs were mainly for the youth of the Canadian District but as time passed more ministries through camping were added. Today, the camp comprises some ninety acres of aspen forest on South Cooking Lake. It offers a complete summer camping program and year round opportunities for conferences and retreats and caters to a wide range of age groups. Camp Van Es has a full range of modern facilities including a heated indoor swimming pool.
