We are located ninety minutes South-West of Winnipeg, and just ten minutes outside of the cities of Winkler and Morden. Search for “Winkler Bible Camp” in Google Maps or click here for the Google Maps location.
You may make up to two cabinmate requests. Please note that each cabinmate requested must be within two grade years of the camper being registered and be registered as the same sex, be registering for the same camp type and session. All cabinmates must request each other. While every effort is made to honor cabinmate requests, it is not a guarantee. A maximum of three friends will be placed in the same cabin, to ensure a healthy cabin dynamic.
A qualified medical officer is always on site while campers are here, and we are a five minute drive from Boundary Trails Health Centre. The health and care of your child are very important to us while they are here. If your child has any medical information please make the camp aware of this through the registration portal or by calling the office.
We use an online registration system. Instructions are included in the process. Call our office if you have any questions. If you would rather register with a paper form, please contact our office at 204-325-9519 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes! We offer after camp childcare for our Kinder Kids and Little Buddies Day Campers. This service is not an extension of the camp day but rather a more informal time where campers can play or do activities that are made available to them. These activities may include coloring, watching an age appropriate video or other 'down time' activities. During this time, they will be supervised by camp staff (not necessarily their cabin leaders). Cost is $10 per day per child and can be added on at registration. If you would like to add this after registration, please contact our office.
Yes, in many cases we are able to host campers with physical or intellectual disabilities and provide a one-on-one leader for your child’s stay at camp. There are limited spots for this each week, please register your child and fill out a one on one assistance form. Our office will then contact you about your registration and your child's specific needs.
We are committed to the safety of our campers and summer ministry team members and will continue to follow the health and safety guidelines as required for summer camps. At this point, we do not anticipate any specific restrictions to be in place this summer but will communicate with parents if this changes.
Click here to view a copy of the Terms and Conditions we will ask you to sign when you register your child.
This is an optional add-on you can sign up for to receive a text update directly to your phone each day your child is at camp. This is for overnight camps only, and is not specific to your child, but rather camp session focused (ie, Little Buddies, TPV Junior, etc.). If you would like to add this after registration, please contact our office.
We do our best to send out an acceptance package by email or mail within ten business days of receiving the registration. If you do not receive an acceptance package within this time, please contact the camp. If your child is on a waiting list for their preferred session, we will be in contact with you if a spot opens up. Winkler Bible Camp will not hold your child’s spot without registration and deposit, or confirmation of alternative funding.
Our priority is to provide as many campers as possible the opportunity to attend summer camp. While running day camps in 2021 we heard from many parents and campers that day camp was their preference. As such, we have prioritized adding day camp spots for all age groups this year, in addition to overnight spots.
Financial assistance is available through the Sunshine Fund managed by Manitoba Camping Association (click here to call) or www.mbcamping.ca. If you are not able to receive funding through the Sunshine Fund, please contact our office and we will direct you to other sources, including our own campership aid fund. Note: It is your responsibility to secure funding, however you may contact the camp if you require assistance in filling out forms etc., we are happy to help.
Payment can be made online in the registration portal by credit card or eCheque (a pre-authorized withdrawal from your bank account), by calling the office or you can pay by cash or cheque in person during office hours or through the mail. We do not recommend mailing cash. At this time, we do not accept etransfers for payment of camp fees. The balance of fees are due June 15 and can be paid in the same way as the deposit.
During registering you will be required to pay a non-refundable $50 deposit for each camper and full payment is due June fifteenth. You may pay in full, or sign up for a payment plan. Balance payments can be made by logging into your account here. Please contact our office if you need to make alternate payment arrangements. We ask that you help us by taking care of payment promptly once you are allowed.
If a cancellation is made more than two weeks prior to a camp session, the fee, less the deposit, will be refunded. There will be NO REFUND if a cancellation is made less than two weeks prior to the start of the registered camp session, except in the case of a medical emergency.
To provide the best experience and help prevent homesickness, we discourage direct contact with your child during their week of camp. If you have any concerns or a time-sensitive message for them, please contact the camp office at 204-325-9519.
During your child’s stay, we have a team dedicated to capturing the fun through photos and video. These can be seen on our social media platforms. We also have a ‘Text Update’ add-on that you may purchase for overnight campers. For $5, we will text you an update of some of the fun things happening at camp each day that your child is here.
Our cabin leaders are trained to deal with homesick campers, and are usually able to help them through it by distracting them with the many fun activities at camp. If this does not work, the child may be allowed to call home in an attempt for the parent to encourage the child to stay. If your child is struggling we may call you to see what you recommend, because sometimes having a camper call home makes it harder for them to stay. If this does not help and the parent and camper agree that the camper should go home, we would help line that up. In this case the camper will not be able to return to camp that week, nor will any refund be given.
In order to keep Winkler Bible Camp a safe place for your child, campers must be signed out each time they leave our site. The name of the pick-up person/people will be required during registration. If this changes, please notify the camp office before pick-up time. In order to provide the best camp experience for your child, we recommend that you reschedule all appointments and prior commitments that conflict with their camp session.
