Camp Nutimik History
by Peter Aaldyk
Soon after WW2, Manitoba Baptist Churches realize the spiritual and physical value of out-of-door living, worshiping and camping. A number of men who operated trap lines and cut lumber in the then-called Whiteshell Provincial Forest knew a trapper named Van Sickle who owned property on the present Nutimik area. Rev. A Kuhn, pastor of the German Baptist Church in the River Hills area approached him to purchase a portion of his property for the purpose of building a camp for boys and girls. He agreed and sold part of his property for $1.00 to the Manitoba Baptist Triunion. Shortly after this sale, Mr. Van Sickle passed away. And so Lake Nutimik Baptist Camp began.
Buildings were started in 1954. The former Lakeside Hall was erected first. After that, a dormitory, half for boys and half for girls, was built. In the mornings, campers had to trek to the waterfront to bathe. A chapel was built and the floor covered with sawdust. Camp pastors, kitchen staff, and the camp nurse were housed in the so-called “motel” located by the waterfront. It was primitive, but it was a beginning. More cabins were built to accommodate the ever-increasing number of campers.
