Perhaps Ihe realizalion comes with mid-semester re- port The resolutions to "really work hard this year" seem to have been forgotten in the maze of activity throughout the semester. The most exciting event, I would say, (if I were asked to pick one day) would last Fri- day, the day prior to our game with LCI. All forms of 'spirit rousing' activities were put into operation. In fact, I believe close to all that have ever been Invented. To begin with, earlier in the week there was a paint-in and the result was Churchill's new wallpaper job!

Friday was declared color day a day on which every- one wears the school colovs. Of course a pep rally was held on Friday morning, one of the best I've seen, I might add.

They are excited by llic dip of Uie paddle, sailing off into a crimson sunset or riding lorscback through the crisp ioothills' snow. Evenings will find them clus- .erecl around a huge open fire exchanging views on how they saw God in nature as they ex- plored the out-of-doors and singing the familiar camp songs that tell of the echoes, hills and streams of the foothill country. Pioneer Lodge, and Mountain cainp at Crimson Lake, west of Rooky Mountain House provide both summer and year-round camping exper- iences for kids, teens and fam- ilies. Rocky Moan tain, with its individual cabins and huge ranch house dining room ant lounge, offers canoeing, sailing horseback riding, ry and crafts. archery, rifle- students, nurses and parents, witli campers from northern Alberta alternating weekends with those from the south. Plans are finalized for a family Christmas camp offering a won- derful Yuletide in the foothills. Coupled with this will be the annual International Christmas at Banff when students from all parls of the world converge "or a week of winter fun and festivities. The two Alberta camps, the lodge and the ranch, are part of a chain of inter varsity camps across Canada and are members of both (he Alberta and Canadian Camping Asoci- lions. Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship is an inlcr-denomin- ational, non-profit organization open to all students, nurses, faculty ami friends. It works as an arm of the church in the academic institutions and in the camping field. Today there are over 700 slu- derl clubs across Canada affi- liated with inter-varsity.
