Greetings from Winkler Bible Camp,
What an interesting situation we find ourselves in. However, we know when everything seems out of control, our God is still present and powerful and we can trust Him.
As a camp we have not been immune to the effects of the rise of the COVID-19 virus and have cancelled all our rentals for the month of April. We are uncertain of how our spring season will look, as we are typically very busy at this time, but we continue to do our part by practicing physical distancing while preparing our site.
We are cautiously hopeful that we will be able to run Summer Camp 2020 as planned. We continue to receive registrations and have over 1500 campers registered. We encourage you to register soon to ensure you are able to sign up for your desired dates. As this is a constantly changing situation we continue to monitor it closely. We are committed to keeping you updated as we learn more.
It is our sincere hope that you and your loved ones are staying healthy and are able to enjoy your time together in these unique and unusual circumstances. We continue to pray for you and your family and are available via phone or email to answer any of your questions.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We leave you with these words of peace and hope.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7-8
Dale & Candace Wiebe

In 2010, we began a capital campaign called Building for our children, Building for eternity. Our objective was to move Winkler Bible Camp into a place of future strength and prepare for many more decades of ministry. What started as a $1.8 million capital campaign changed to a $2.7 million total with the necessary addition of a new dining hall. Through generous donors like yourself we have paid off $2.1 million.
Now the time has come to focus on paying the remaining cost of this project and move forward in financial freedom and health! Can you help us? If you have questions or would like to donate, contact the camp or visit winklerbiblecamp.com/debt-retirement for more information
