Edgerton Day Camp in Daysland

SOUTHEAST OF EDMONTON

Daysland Daysland's logo is the unique Prairie Crocus, a symbol of the beautiful Alberta Prairies. Daysland is located 40 km southeast of Camrose on Highway 13. Home to more than 800 residents, Daysland serves as the education, medical and shopping centre for a large mixed farming district. Edgerton W. Day purchased the land for the community from the Canadian Pacific Railroad in 1904 – he became Daysland's first mayor in 1905. He donated the golf course land to be preserved as parkland, and now Daysland boasts a scenic 9-hole golf course, with campground and clubhouse for all to enjoy.

ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS The historic Palace Theatre, built in 1952 and located on mainstreet is the place to go for your entertainment needs. Local volunteers work hard to provide a concert series every year, current weekly movies with the best popcorn ever (with real butter), and a kids camp each summer!
