Jon Olfert has been helping kids and families get outside at Camp Valaqua for the past 7 years. Jon is passionate about his work and makes it his mission to give kids the opportunity to grow in relationship with others, God, and creation. Jon is also the father of three active boys and takes them outside every chance he gets!
Camp Valaqua has been providing a place to play outside since 1959. The beautiful setting on the banks of the Little Red Deer River in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains is a fantastic place to meet deer, moose, elk, grouse, squirrels, each other and many other of God’s wonderful creatures. The summer camp programs at Valaqua focus on creating a safe place for kids to grow in self confidence, relationship with others, relationship with God and Jesus, and in their connection to Creation itself.
