Mennonite Church Manitoba Update

Summer is on its way and we are gearing up for camp! The leadership teams have one more prep week before Staff Training Week begins July 1st. We will have close to 80 staff at Camp Assiniboia learning and playing together, getting ready to welcome children and adults with disabilities to our two sites the following week. Thank you for your support of our staffing community! (note: male staff are still needed for July 8-13 and July 19-August 3)

Volunteers still needed! We are still in need of kitchen and maintenance volunteers at both camps, as well as camp pastors. Please call 895-CAMP or email [email protected] if you can help out.
