Our Story

Barbara and Bethany’s Day Camp

We are proud to serve the community of Lacombe by providing specialized day-camps. In 2020, we started our Pedal to the Metal Day Camp in response to the pandemic. We wanted to provide something to help kids stay active during an uncertain time. We had such an overwhelming response from parents! All of our camps were full, and we had a waitlist for many of the weeks. For the 2021 season, we added more camps to accommodate the need. We also hired more camp staff to work with us. This year, we’re SO EXCITED to run our bike camp and we’re going to have so much fun!

We love camp, and we have spent much of our lives involved in summer camps. Since we were little, we lived at kids camps – our dad was a camp director of two camps. We’ve both worked as camp counselors and eventually moved into leadership roles. Barbara served as Equestrian Director with numerous staff working under her, along with a herd of horses to care for and train. Beth was Water-Sports Director with a team of lifeguards and motorboats to manage. We love summer, and we love kids. 

Right now, we are living and volunteering in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. We’re helping out at Camp Wai’anae and we’ll be back in time for Lacombe Bike Camp. In September, Bethany will continue at Walla Walla University, in Washington State, where she is taking a degree in Elementary Education. Barbara will be starting a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Andrews University in Michigan.

We were born and raised here in Lacombe and we are proud to give back to our community. We love our small city, and we hope that your kids can join us on our city’s beautiful trails. 

2022 camps are already looking awesome! We’ll be offering 2 camps every morning and every afternoon. Since the Adventure Camps were so popular, we’ll be offering them again!

As always, we hope to see your whole family actively playing somewhere outside! You might see us mountain biking, but you can also find us on our long-boards or jogging. If you are at the lake, we might be windsurfing, scuba diving, or just relaxing while we fish. Even more, we hope to see you at one of our Day Camps!
