Summer Camp



Monday, July 24 - Sunday, July 30, 2017
Manhattan Beach, MB

A week of fun for the whole family!

Our desire is that Summer Camp would be a place where we can kick back and get to know each other. We have structured the days at Summer Camp to be relaxing, yet fun and exciting. There is something to do for ALL ages!!

Our Annual Springs Summer Camp is held at Manhattan Beach Retreat Centre five minutes east of Ninette, MB (near Killarney).

There is a wide range of accommodations at Summer Camp to suit both small and large families. There are different sized cabins, motel rooms, a full hook-up campground and tent sites. The accommodations range in price from $200.00 - $850.00 for the entire week depending on the size of the accommodation and the amount of amenities.

The camp has a Dining Hall where breakfast, lunch and dinner can be purchased each day. After the evening services they have snacks and refreshments available. You are welcome to eat all your meals in the Dining Hall or just show up when you feel like ‘taking a break from the kitchen’. The cabins also have fridges and cook tops if you are interested in preparing your own meals during the week.

A Typical Day at Camp
In the Morning:
-Each morning from 10:00 – 11:30 children ages 3 – Grade 5 (grade finished in June/17) can attend Kids Classes with our College Alumni. Here they will have activities, games, crafts, etc. around a theme in God’s Word.
-The Youth also gather together each morning for time of their own with our Youth leaders.
-The adults can meet for coffee and muffins on the Dining Hall deck and meet someone new.

In the Afternoon:
-After lunch there are always things to do!
-The fully life-guarded swimming pool is open from 1:00pm – 5:00pm daily.
-If you have a boat or other watercraft, you are welcome to bring it along; the lake has plenty of room for skiing, tubing and other water sports.
-Lots of people gather at the beach for the afternoon just to take in the sun.
-Some gather together for a wild (and competitive) game of beach volleyball, baseball or other challenges/games we may have planned.
