The Associate Program Director for Camps with Meaning in Manitoba is hopeful that this summer they will see more campers. 

Camps with Meaning is a ministry of Mennonite Church Manitoba. 

"It is hard to plan because we don't know what's happening in the next month, but what we are hoping to do is a summer full of day camps and what we call pop-up camps," says the Associate Program Director, Janet Peters.

One of the two camps with the organization is Camp Koinonia, south of Boissevain.

"We are hoping to host one or two pop-up days with our adults with disabilities. We missed connecting with them last summer at Koinonia."

Peters says they are hoping to try week-long day camps with the same campers. While the driving back and forth may not be ideal, she says people can camp in the nearby Provincial park as another option. 

"I think what we're planning to do this year is wait to collect the registration fees until closer until we know for sure that we're going ahead."

Camp Assiniboia is near Headingly, not too far outside of Winnipeg and it is the other camp in the organization.

"Assiniboia will be running a few more day camps, simply because it's closer to the city and it's a little easier to get out there for a five-day camp."

Peters is hopeful for a better turn out than last year. 

"I'm hoping it will feel safe enough and it will feel like the right time to get out and let your kids try something fun, challenging, and inspiring."
