Camp Caroline is located in the beautiful foothills of the Canadian
Rockies, 6.5 km south of the town of Caroline, on 320 acres of beautiful
woodlands. Camp Caroline is owned and operated by the Alberta
Baptist Association (ABA). The strong supportive relationships that exist
between Camp Caroline and the churches of the ABA allow for sharing
resources and a strong team effort to accomplish Kingdom purposes.
The facilities include an indoor pool & hot tub, meeting rooms, games
room, gymnasium, sports 􀂿 elds, volleyball courts, over 8km of hiking
trails, and two modern lodges which comfortably accommodate up
to 228 people. The facility is rented out to a variety of groups from
September to mid-June and is well suited to accommodate school band
groups, family reunions, craft workshops, and various church retreats.
The Camp offers a picturesque setting, wholesome atmosphere, and an
overall 􀂿 rst rate retreat environment.
Alvin Reinhard Fritz Architect Inc. (ARFAI) has been involved in the
design of Camp Caroline for many years. Construction and development
on the site proceeded on the basis of a Master Plan which was
developed by ARFAI in collaboration with Jim Crozier and the Camp
Board and Building Committee. One of the 􀂿 rst projects developed in
the context of this Master Plan was a central Chapel which provides a
central focus for the camp and draws all who visit to their spiritual roots.
The second phase of development towards the implementation of the
master plan was construction of a regulation size gymnasium designed
to preserve the opportunity for sports camps. The most recent phase
of development was a housing wing which provides much-needed
accommodation for guests at Camp Caroline.
Alvin Reinhard Fritz Architect Inc. is privileged to have been able to
provide collaborative design services for this exciting environment.
