Camps with Meaning is the camping ministry of Mennonite Church Manitoba.
We are excited about the ongoing development of our camping ministry. The timeline below includes links to significant documents, events and drawings that are in process, or have taken place. We invite your gifts of prayer, encouragement and, of course, finances, in bringing this project to full realization.
