About Our Camp
Camp Koinonia is located on the shores of Max Lake in Turtle Mountain Provincial Park, 270 km SW of Winnipeg. Transportation is provided to this vibrant summer camp which offers sessions for children, youth and adults with disabilities.
Campers grow in body, mind and spirit through the activity program. Mountain biking, wall climbing, archery, canoeing, and swimming build strength and skill. Nature study encourages campers to appreciate and care for their environment. An age-appropriate Bible exploration program provides moral teaching and spiritual growth opportunities. Music is an important part of camp life. Staff teach campers a repertoire of original Camps with Meaning songs as well as some camp classics. The low staff-to-camper ratio contributes to a feeling of close community. Campers bond with each other in their cabin groups throughout the week, and they get to know each other even better during the weekly campout in wilderness camp sites around the lake. A special “Extreme green Adventure Week” is offered for campers who want a two day Koinonia wilderness campout experience.
At Camp, everyone is encouraged to participate, regardless of ability or skill-level. Activities are taught in a way that maximizes cooperation and minimizes competition. Campers with special needs are integrated into the program. Trained staff provide physical and emotional care for all campers. The food, prepared by a qualified Food Services Coordinator, is healthy and delicious. Financial support is available based on need.
The camp is owned and operated by Mennonite Church Manitoba, and is open to all campers. It is also available for year round rental for groups such as families, churches and schools of up to 80 persons. There are also facilities for small groups of 2-8.
