Week 2

July 6-13

We are excited to be hosting four AMAZING teams from across the United States to help us this year with Backyard Kids Camp!

Backyard Kids Camp is a joint VBS-style outreach hosted by three churches in Cochrane, AB. 

This page will serve as a hub for information regarding your mission trip to Cochrane this summer.



Week of June 3-7

  • Welcome Email to all Team Members from the BKC Planning Team and Mission Team Coordinators.

By June 21

  • BKC Training Video - We will email all team members to watch our recorded BKC Training, which will be held live in Cochrane on June 19. Every team member can watch the training independently or in a group. The BKC Training Video will provide specific training for helping with BKC (including specific station training).

June 29 @ Time TBD

  • Zoom Orientation for All Team Members - One of our BKC Directors and the Mission Team Coordinators will host a Zoom meeting for all Team Members on Saturday, June 29. The Orientation will provide a space to ask questions after watching the BKC Training Video and receive a cultural orientation to life/ministry in Canada.


Sunday, July 7 @ 10:00a

  • Joint Worship Gathering | Mitford Park - We will worship with our local partner churches and missions teams. We will have a time to pray and commission ALL of our volunteers for the week of ministry ahead.

July 8 - 12

  • Backyard Kids Camp | Mornings
  • Other Ministry Projects | Afternoons

What will we be doing?

Our planning team will release a detailed schedule later in June, but your time in Cochrane will follow this general layout.


Every morning, you will be able to help Bow Valley Baptist, Cochrane Alliance, and Tapestry Church host 100s of kids from Cochrane at Backyard Kids Camp (BKC).


After a shared lunch following BKC mornings, our ministry teams will have the opportunity to help serve a variety of other church plants or ministries throughout the Greater Calgary area with small one-off projects.


We believe that the best mission trip provides space for rest, fun, and debriefing. In the evenings your team will be able to rest, enjoy Cochrane and the surrounding area, and debrief.
