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, but yet fun and exciting. There is something to do for ALL ages!!
Our Annual Springs Summer Camp is held at Manhattan Beach Retreat Centre 5 miles east of Ninette, MB and 1 mile south off Highway #23.
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 $300.00 – $975.00 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/18) can attend Kids Classes with our College Alumni. Here they will have activities, games, crafts, etc. around a theme in God’s Word. Youth also gather together each morning for devotion/study time of their own with our Youth Pastor and leaders. Adults have a chance to relax over coffee with your neighbours or take part in one of the activities we have happening while the kids are in their classes.

Each evening at 7:30pm (for about an hour) the adults and youth, ages 13 and up, gather in the Adult Chapel for our service. We spend time together in praise and worship and learning from His Word. During our evening service, children ages 3 – Grade 5 will go to Kids Classes with our College Alumni. Our Youth will also be getting together each evening at 10pm for some fun and exciting times of their own. Community campfires happen after every service, bring your lawn chair and spend some time relaxing and getting to know one another (don’t forget your marshmallows!).
