Camp Director – Andrew Dreger

My wife Sarah and I are the proud parents of 4 boys who keep us busy, humble and smiling…Most of the time! It was so exciting to have them attend LPC as campers for the first time in 2021!

I have served at Lone Prairie Camp every year since 2002 in a wide variety of roles including CLT, Support Staff, Maintenance, Cabin Leader, Boat Driver, “Special Projects” and Program Director. Throughout all my other commitments, the ministry of Lone Prairie Camp has captured my being again and again. I accepted the role of Camp Director in 2012 and consider it a huge honour to serve in this position.

I have been actively involved at Ellerslie Road Baptist Church since High School and have assisted in various capacities including youth sponsoring, teaching Sunday School and ushering.  Between my first and second years of university, I had the privilege of serving street children with ACTION Zambia and ACTION Uganda and then graduated from the University of Alberta in 2010 with a Bachelor in Engineering Physics. Since then, I have completed of my Masters of Divinity degree through The Canadian Baptist Seminary (CBS, part of ACTS) and continue to pursue formal education.

Camp Administrator – Sarah Dreger

My husband Andrew and I met at LPC in Summer 2008 while I was serving as one of the summer speakers. We have had the privilege of growing our family at LPC and now have 4 boys who can’t help but call LPC and the LPC community home.

I have served at Lone Prairie Camp every year since 2008 in a wide variety of roles including Speaker, Support staff, Cabin Leader, Kitchen Coordinator, Camp Administrator, CLT Leader and more. It is a great privilege to have served so many families as they experience camp year after year.

I grew up in Mississauga Ontario where I had the opportunity to attend camp since I was 5 years old. Since then I have been involved in serving at many different camps in many different ministry structures and with many different roles. I have served at day camps, overnight camps, and summer retreat camps throughout Ontario. Once I moved to Alberta in 2007 I have had the privilege of serving solely at Lone Prairie Camp.

I have been actively involved at Ellerslie Road Baptist Church since 2011 and have assisted in various capacities including youth sponsoring, teaching Sunday School and serving in their Ladies Morning Out program. I graduated from Providence University College and Theological Seminary in 2007 with a BA in Youth and Children’s ministry which has helped me serve as a Youth Pastor, Children’s Pastor, and in my many activities here at Lone Prairie Camp.

2024 Summer Team

This list does not include the many wonderful volunteers who join us each summer to serve for a few specific weeks.

Program Director – Evelyn Yang

I have completed my third year at the University of Alberta where I am studying elementary education. I have attended Good Shepherd Chinese Lutheran Church my whole life and serve with the Children’s Ministry and on the worship team. This is my fifth year at Lone Prairie Camp and I am excited to see how God works through us this year! My past summers at camp have been filled with meaningful conversations and fun as I grow in my relationship with Christ and encourage the campers who come. I am grateful for this opportunity to serve, and I look forward to meeting all the campers, working with the staff, and encountering God this summer!

Lifeguard – Danika Carnahan

I am excited to serve at Lone Prairie Camp this year, it will be my seventh year returning, and my second as a staff member. Camp has always been the highlight of my year because it is always an fantastic opportunity to see God working through the campers’ and staff’s lives to make His name known and to bring us closer to Himself. I have personally experienced God in this unique ministry and believe that it is a very important way of bringing the word to the next generation. Camp offers a distinct setting and allows campers and staff to experience God without the distractions of normal day to day life.

Facility Maintenance Assistant – Edison Li

I am thrilled to join the team at Lone Prairie Camp! In previous summers, I have volunteered at Lone Prairie Camp as support staff, kitchen help, and as a CLT. Every summer I return, I am excited to serve God with the friends I have made along the way. Currently, I attend Terwillegar Community Church and have created a Christian club at my school, which has deepened my faith and leadership skills. I enjoy playing pickleball, volleyball, and spending time in God’s creation. With plans to explore overseas missions in the upcoming year, I’m excited to serve God at camp and can’t wait to let the Holy Spirit lead me this summer!

Administrative Office Assistant- Eden Rutto

This past school year I completed my third year studying science at the University of Alberta. I attend Ambleside Baptist Church, where I serve in the worship team, and I also youth lead at Ellerslie Road Baptist Church. As a kid, I absolutely loved being an LPC camper! It was a place that inspired me to grow in my faith, because of the positive environment and the supportive staff that showed God’s love. I believe attending camp is a transformative experience, and I am so excited to serve God and see Him at work this summer! I look forward to meeting new people and forming meaningful connections too!

First Aid Attendant- Luke Yang

I have completed my first year of Nursing at the University of Alberta and will be returning to school in the fall. I grew up in Edmonton Good Shepherd Chinese Lutheran Church, where I serve in children’s ministry and on the worship team. I enjoy playing music, sports, and going out with my friends. This year will be my second summer as a staff member on the program team. Lone Prairie Camp has always been a place where staff members and campers can meet new people and further their relationship with Christ, so I am excited to see how God will work through us this summer. I am looking forward to serving God and His people!

Cabin Leader – Tavia Siemens

I just finished off my senior year of high school and am pumped that I get to spend my summer here at LPC! I attend Rockpointe Westhills in Calgary and I have been active within my church community for many years, serving in kids ministry as well as at youth group! As an avid sports enthusiast and follower of Christ, I’m eager to combine my love for outdoor activities with serving God. Following camp, I’ll be off to Sweden in the fall for a year of Bible school! Thrilled to foster spiritual growth and build lasting connections while spreading God’s love with others. Let’s make this summer unforgettable!

Cabin Leader – Carl Chu

I am 19 years old. I love sports, building community, and going outside. Specifically at camp, I enjoy being immersed in creation and experiencing God through it.
The social environment of Lone Prairie Camp provides unique opportunities. I am excited to be a part of a tight-knit, God-centered community. One that strives towards God together. And especially a community that has unique opportunities to live out their faith in the mentorship of campers. Beyond this, I feel called by God to be at camp. I would not want to be anywhere but where God wants me, doing his work. There is no way I would rather spend my summer.

Cabin Leader – Erik Pellegrino


I have been going to Lone Prairie Camp my whole childhood. Serving this year will be a great opportunity to give back to the community and model God’s love. I have been going to St. John’s the Evangelist Church my whole life as well, and it was that place, along with camp, where I began my walk with Jesus. I have just spent the year abroad in Europe attending Bible School, so I’m super excited to put all my knowledge into practice! I can’t wait to be able to serve as part of the community this summer! I pray that God’s glory can shine through me and my actions so that I can be an encouragement to everyone I meet this summer!

Cabin Leader – Cole Tse

I grew up in Edmonton, attending Ellerslie Road Baptist Church. I love to run, bike and play soccer for fun. After high school, I completed a post-secondary Certificate of Christian Discipleship at Ambrose University. I recently graduated from the program and have a renewed passion for Christian community and service. Camp was a big part of my childhood and I hope to help create that same memorable experience at Lone Prairie Camp this summer! Next year I will be attending the University of Calgary majoring in political science. In ten years, I see myself working for a municipal government in Alberta.

Cabin Leader – Noah Ward

I am 19 years old and I grew up in Ellerslie Road Baptist Church. I had so many fun moments last summer working as a cabin leader. I got to work with a great team and share the glory of God with the campers. There were a few weeks when one of my campers would come up to me to pray with them to commit themselves to God, which was very special. I grew lots spiritually over my time at camp and it was hard not to read the Bible for at least a few minutes per day. I am excited about coming out again this summer and spreading the word of God, and creating a distinct environment from day-to-day experiences.
