Mission Statement

Camp Arnes, an extension of the ministry of the Church, owned and operated by Lake Winnipeg Mission Camp Society, Inc., was founded in 1949 by a group of Mennonite Brethren laymen, dedicated to challenging guests with exemplary Christian living, spiritual nurture, character and leadership development in a wilderness environment.

Building on the goals of the founders, the Society strives to demonstrate innovation and leadership in carrying out Christ’s Great Commission to “preach the good news” to all people (Matthew 28:18-20).

In accordance with the traditions of the Society, the Mission of Camp Arnes is to:

To lead young people to a growing, meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ through adventure in creation.

Our Values

Fun – We value a spirit of fun through a shared experience of play and adventure.

Relationships – We value relationships as modelled by Jesus: authentic and filled with grace and love.

Excellence – We value opportunity to challenge and inspire people towards excellence for the glory of God.
