We are looking forward to hosting the riders and the Coast to Coast team at Camp Kindle once again this year. This is the fourth year that we have been able to host the tour at Camp Kindle. The Alberta Tour 4 Kids has raised almost $1.8 million in support of camps and programs offered to Alberta families affected by childhood cancer over the past 8 years. We are very grateful for the support from Coast to Coast Against Cancer, the riders and from all the people who make a pledge. All of the money collected goes directly to programs and camps. You are making a difference in the lives of children and families.
To our returning riders I would like to once again thank you all for your continued generous support. To our new riders welcome to the best bicycle tour event in Alberta through one of the most scenic areas in the world. We hope that you enjoy your ride and think you might be a little impressed by your time at Camp Kindle. To those rides who haven’t registered yet, what are you waiting for?
We’ve completed a few more features at camp that we think you will enjoy, can you imagine yourself soaking in the hot tub after a long days ride? Come on out and give it a try!

Great cause – great food, route and people – logistics well thought out – really liked seeing and staying at Camp Kindle to the tangible fruits of the fundraising. GD
It is really awesome to get to stay at Kindle. As someone who has not had to use the facilities it really helps my fundraising to be able to talk meaningfully about what it is like there. DB
The amazing thing about camp is seeing kids who were in the hospital every day only the week before, sick and weak, watching them climb rock walls, canoeing, laughing – and forgetting why there were in the hospital at all. Paediatric Oncologist
Great atmosphere, with lots of passion and excitement. Very well organized, food is great, safety is a priority…the “leaders” are so invested, and you can tell. TW
The volunteer support was incredible, the food and water stations were some of the best I have ever seen. IG
This is the most remarkable camp. A place where the kids feel that they are accepted, supported, appreciated and that they really belong. They experience activities and develop friendships that they typically don’t have elsewhere. They become physically and mentally stronger and more confident. Camp Kindle—heaven on earth in the beauty of its location, its surroundings, its staff, its volunteers, and its campers. Parent of camper
Camp is a wonderful place to go for the boys, where they can just be themselves, where other children and staff understand what it’s like to go through a cancer journey with a sibling. Children shouldn’t get cancer, but they do and camp prepares children for the future in living with the disease or in accepting the realities that they’ve lost a friend or a sibling to this terrible disease. Children and families need the support from others who understand what it’s like to face a childhood cancer diagnosis. Camp does this and more. Accepted, love, friendships, hope, renewed life…camp gives us all of this and more. Parent of camper
