Description and Mission

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 children and adults 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:

Provide campers and staff with an exceptional atmosphere for inviting them to experience Christ as Lord and Savior (John 3:16 & 17).

Develop Christian character and leadership qualities through role modeling and formal teaching.

Provide an outstanding setting and opportunity for recreation and relaxation.

Foster a sensitive attitude to nature and the management of our environment (Psalm 8, 19).

Offer a camping experience to people of diverse cultural, ethnic and church heritages while recognizing our responsibility to the Mennonite Brethren community of Manitoba, who provide much of our continuing support.


"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." (Matthew 22:37-40)
