Camps with Meaning is the camping ministry of Mennonite Church Manitoba.
We have begun a substantial revisioning of our camping ministry. The timeline below includes links to significant documents, events and drawings that are in process. We invite your gifts of prayer, encouragement and, of course, finances, in bringing this project to full realization.
