The first summer of Midway Bible Camp (MBC) was July 1954 in Churchill, Manitoba! Eight young boys came to camp that summer, and learned some life skills, listened to some Bible stories and learned about a God who created them and loves them!
The camp moved several times to a few other locations around northern Manitoba and eventually settled in Moak Lake where we are now. Kids are still coming to MBC to learn life skills, listen to Bible stories and learn about a God who created them and still loves them!
Life at camp
We have camps for ages 7-17 from July and into August. They typically run from Monday to Saturday. The campers are dropped off at camp by their parents,or picked up in their community, at the airport, bus stop or train station. They stay in a cabin group for the week with 2 Cabin Leaders (Counselors) and up to seven other kids of the same sex and age group. Throughout the week they take part in different skills such as, archery, canoeing, B.B. gun shooting, tomahawk throwing, arts and crafts, swimming, hiking and fishing.
Each day there are two Chapel sessions where we sing songs and learn more about God from different speakers. There are times to run around and play with everyone as well as sit down in smaller groups and talk, not to mention all the great food!
MBC is a great place to meet new friends, learn how to make your community a better place and how to make a positive impact on those around you!
