Camp Harding Mission
To equip, support, and encourage camp staff, volunteers and participants to seek the Lord, by providing meaningful camp and retreat programming in the midst of His glorious creation at Cypress Hills Provincial Park.
Camp Harding is operated by the Anglican Diocese of Qu’Appelle. It is situated in the center block of the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park on the Saskatchewan side approximately 30 km Southwest of Maple Creek on Highway 21.
Camp Harding itself is in a secluded pocket of the Park. It has four old-style bunkhouses each able to sleep eight, plus two smaller rustic cabins. There are washrooms and showers available on-site. The main building is a heated quonset which houses a fully equipped camp kitchen including a walk-in cooler, a large multipurpose space, and our adjoining craft room. There is also an outdoor chapel, a permanent basketball hoop, and a large fire pit area.
Special thanks to our donors and the Anglican Foundation Say Yes to Kids Campaign through which we were able to raise over $4,000 in 2023 to support this ministry!

Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park is the first and only inter-provincial park in Canada. Rising up to 600 meters (1,970 ft) above the surrounding prairie, these hills and fescue grasslands represent the highest terrain between Labrador and the Rocky Mountains. For visitors, the steep rises, lush valleys and pine-scented breezes lend a mountain air to this prairie island.
Four distinct habitats and a climate more moderate than the prairies make this a park exceptionally rich in plant and animal life. Stately lodgepole pines embrace the higher elevations of the hills and grow nowhere else in Saskatchewan. Moose, elk, Nuttall's cottontail, white tailed deer, bobcat, red squirrel and mule deer make their home here and there have been rare sightings of cougar, as well.
Planning for our Camp Harding ministry is carried out by our Volunteer Advisory Board
2023 Board: Bishop Helen, Rev. Jesse Miller, Rev. Michael Bruce, Rev. Christine Burton, Terry Page, William Mitchell, Mike Mitchell, and Kate Berringer, Camp Director
