Close to 150 people gathered to celebrate 50 years of ministry at Camp Koinonia on October 2, 2016. Camp activities like wall climbing, ziplining, canoeing and pontoon boat rides were supplemented by tours and cinnamon buns for the afternoon. Jake Neufeld, long time Koinonia supporter, and Resident Manager from 1977 to 1987 made a huge batch of chili in the cauldron for the supper meal. The event was capped off with worship, reminiscing and giving thanks for all the people who served, and opportunities for ministry, 50 years at Camp Koinonia has enabled.
Camp Koinonia was begun in 1966 by Manitoba Mennonites in the South West corner of the province. It is one of three camping ministry sites owned and operated by Camps with Meaning, a Mission Ministry of Mennonite Church Manitoba.
