United Church Camps


Camping has been a vital ministry of the United Church since union, having grown out of Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational/Union church camps that had sprung up across Canada.

Today United Church congregations continue to support the development and growth of our camping ministries.

Over 20,000 people each year are welcomed, regardless of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, or faith tradition.

United Church Camps are faith-based camps that incorporate spirituality, values, and cultural diversity in unique and adventurous ways.

For more information on United Church camps within Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario please see the individual links below.

In addition to camp programming all of these camp facilities are also available for rental by groups.
