This summer, through the Family Program of Mennonite Disaster Service, we are going to build four new all-season cabins at Camp Assiniboia. We are very excited about this project – both in terms of hosting MDS families and in terms of the impact that it will have on our programs, long-term sustainability and vision for a mission program at camp. (Learn more about how this project fits in the Camp Assiniboia redevelopment plan, and MCM mission vision on the MCM Camping page.)
The cabins that we are building will replace four summer cabins that are no longer viable for use. These new family-sized cabins are designed to accommodate the needs of both our summer and winter programs. Each cabin will be wheelchair accessible and will include:
- a washroom and shower
- small kitchenette with a mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker
- small living room space with plenty of windows and light from which to view the outdoors
- gas fireplace
- screened in porches.
We welcome your donations to help cover the costs of this project. Please visit our Donate page to learn about the ways you can give.
