Grade 12 Retreats – Roseau River, fall retreat and Camp Arnes, winter retreatGr12 Retreat

Every year the Grade 12 class travels to Roseau River Bible Camp for a chance to experience the outdoor. Very few experiences provide the opportunity for personal growth and friendships to develop, like this retreat. Roseau River Bible Camp is a Christian community; all campers and staff are encouraged to encounter God in the midst of creation. Some of the activities are canoeing, swimming and hiking, with some good old fashioned bonding by the fire.

Camp Arnes is located on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, 19 km north of Gimli, situated on 320 acres of wooded forest and meadows. This retreat setting is a great and effective way to provide godliness in the students while experiencing God’s creation. This winter retreat is an amazing experience that they won’t forget. Sleeping in cabins, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, skating, and indoor activities like ping-pong are some highlights.
