Camp Weeks

Assiniboia and Koinonia have many similar activities, but also some unique differences.

At both camps, you can explore faith through singing, skits & stories, activities and conversations, learn about nature, sharpen your camp skills, swim, kayak, enjoy group games, do archery and stretch yourself on a mid-week campout.

  • Pre-Junior half-weeks (completed gr 1-3)
  • Junior-Intermediate (completed gr 1-6) – day camp option!
  • Junior High (completed gr 6-8)
  • Youth (completed gr 9-12)

 Cabin and activity groups are sorted by age.


Day Camp Option at Camp Assiniboia (completed gr 1-6)

If staying out at camp for the whole week is too far out of your comfort zone, take advantage of our day camp option during our Assiniboia Junior-Intermediate weeks this summer. Arrive at camp after breakfast and join the overnight campers for singing, Bible, and activities, and then head home for supper and nights in your own bed! Longer days, lunch, snacks and bus transportation are included in the fee.



Travel to Camp Koinonia in the heart of Turtle Mountain Provincial Park south of Boissevain on the shore of beautiful Max Lake and explore a unique relationship with creation through:

  • canoeing and swimming activities on and in the lake
  • wilderness campsites
  • climbing wall and zipline


Camps offered only at Koinonia:

                Junior High Out-Trip (completed gr 6-8): If you are looking to get out into the wilderness for a week, this is the camp for you!

Come and challenge yourself while building skills and friendships!

                Youth (completed gr 9-12):  Join us for a week filled with challenging activities and workshops, new friends, learning together about faith, camping out around the lake, and a whole lot more.

Do you accommodate campers who might need extra supports?

Absolutely! Our inclusion program provides support for children and youth who need adaptations to have a successful week. If your child needs any support or adaptations please provide details with your registration or give us a call. Apply early to hold your spot. Our Inclusion Coordinator will contact families starting in April to confirm your registration and to help us prepare any adaptive programming and care required. A conversation or interview may be requested.

Will there be more information coming?

Yup! We begin emailing out camper acceptance letters to registered campers in May. The email will include a packing list, transportation details, and anything else we can think of to help prepare your camper for camp.

Can I register my camper for more than one session?

Sure! Simply add multiple weeks to your online registration.

What exactly is the Campership Fund and how do I apply?

The Campership Fund is monies our constituents have donated in order to help all campers who want to get to camp. Anyone is eligible for up to 30% off of the registration fee. We have tried to make the process as simple as possible within the online registration form – you will be asked about your household income and given a code to enter at the payment page.
