About Us









Summer Camps





The Van-Es Camp & Conference Centre is the perfect place to meet the needs of those organizing conferences, courses, retreats, workshops, reunions, birthday parties and weddings.

Lord, we pray for all who are fighting against the spreading of the virus, especially for all victims of the virus, for the sick, and for all nurses, doctors and other medical staff working in the hospitals. We pray for the scientists working on finding vaccines and other medical solutions to the virus, and for peace and stability in all countries.

The Van-Es Camp & Conference Centre has modern banquet facilities, conference and meeting rooms (with hi-speed Internet access), indoor swimming pool and hot tub, historic chapel, and wonderful grounds with miles of nature trails.

Our Unity Lodge features 12 semi-private bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. It sleeps 28 and is wheelchair accessible. There is a common area with a fireplace, kitchen, and an adjacent meeting room. We have used triple pane windows, LED lighting, and in-floor heating.

The Harmony Centre is ideal for your meeting and seminar needs. Our Morning Star Hall is well-equipped to host up to 175 people for day conferences. We offer a number of menus for catered meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, even banquets. Our pool is great for aquafit classes and swimming lessons. And our chapel and grounds are an ideal place to hold your wedding.

Located just 20 minutes southeast of Edmonton on South Cooking Lake, the Van-Es Camp and Conference Centre is located on 100 acres of secluded wooded land.

Modern and rustic cabins for around 65 people are also available for overnight accommodation year-round. Camp trailer and motor home accommodation with electrical hook up and space for tenting are also available.
