Our Ranches are a world apart. The children who come here are not just coming to our beautiful camp facility – they are also escaping the realities of their regular social structures and environments. With its serene and unassuming beauty, its sparkling lake, brightly colored teepees, and hiking trails, OLQP is not simply another one of Alberta‘s charming recreational facilities. It is a neutral place where children can play with purpose and be encouraged to challenge and develop themselves mentally, emotionally, physically, and socially through activities that are thoughtfully designed by caring and qualified OLQP staff. The entire OLQP program is engineered for having fun, but in a way that fosters self-worth, problem solving, teamwork skills, and personal integrity.

As a non-profit organization, we graciously accept, and appreciate all donations and contributions given. The funds collected from our donors are used to supply campers with food, activity supplies, feed for horses, sleeping bags, Leaders in Training programs and much more. The below list gives an overview of the approximate annual costs required to provide our guests this unique ranch experience.
