MHV is again offering two Pioneer Day-Camps, each providing children with a variety of experiences in our pioneer village. The week will include hands on activities like arts and crafts, baking Schnetje, making horseshoe-nail rings, etc. Children will also spend time outdoors playing games and in our heritage buildings learning more about the history of the Mennonites.

The first camp takes place July 14 – 18 and has been developed for children ages 5 – 8. Each day will begin at 10:00 AM and wrap up at 4:30 PM. There is still room in this camp. Please call Angela or Blayne at 204-326-9661 for more information or to register children. The cost is $150 per child.

The second camp takes place August 11 – 15 and is geared to children ages 9 – 12. There are spaces available in this camp as well.
