Real people bringing faith, hope and love to youth through relationships and mentorship.
Teen Time is a club with a purpose. This purpose is to introduce individuals to Jesus Christ, so that they may know Christ as their Lord and Savior. To establish programs that would provide opportunity for Christian growth and discipleship, the programs are that which carries forth the purpose of the organization.
Statement of Faith
At Teen Time, we strive to create an environment where all individuals feel valued and supported, fostering a sense of belonging while promoting the message of Christ. As a non-denominational Christian organization, we strongly believe that ‘where love is felt, the message is heard’.
Wally & Rosie Sczebel founded Teen Time in 1964 as a recreational program for youths. What began as a small group of youngsters gathering regularly, grew to a club with its own sports teams, intramural program and annual Easter drama/musical production.
Incorporated as a society and registered as a charitable organization in 1969, Teen Time established its first summer camp in 1967 at Moose Lake, Alberta, and has since expanded to offer more camps including riding camp and paintball camps.
In 1974, the current camp location near Dapp, Alberta, was purchased, enabling Teen Time to host hundreds of youth aged 7 to 17 for summer camps.
Teen Time of Edmonton acknowledges that we are on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting ground, gathering place, and traveling route to the Cree, Saulteaux (So-toe), Blackfoot, Métis,Dene (De-nay) and Nakota Sioux (Sue). We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
