Despite ever changing public health orders many groups stil need to plan for summer programs in hopes they can host lots of people.

Turtle Mountain Bible Camp between Deloraine and Boissevain is one such place.

The camp usually hosts about 650 campers every summer but that hasn’t been the case since the pandemic started almost two years ago. Co-director Kathy Weir says they’ll do whatever it takes to have people at the camp in 2022.

“We’re really excited and are anticipating a busy summer at Turtle Mountain with campers on site and having things a little more regular. Of course we’ll have to adjust to what the regulations are and just having campers on site will be incredible.

Weir hopes by the time camp rolls around they’ll be able to host 50 or 60 per cent of their normal camping numbers. “We remain optimistic and hope things improve and we’ll move ahead accordingly.”

Summer camp registrations opened at the end of January. Whether you are looking to enjoy the camping experience or want to work at the camp Kathy Weir invites people to visit their website for more information
