“Eight years ago we started our church’s annual Family Camp as a way for our church families to get together for a weekend of fellowship, camping, and worshiping Christ in God’s beautiful creation. Camp Shamineau was a no brainer as to where we could do just that. Their staff has been tremendous and gone out of their way in setting up meals, lodging, activities and just being there for any help we may need. Our first year we had around 20 people attending but within 5 years we grew to over 140. Our weekend together once a year has been a fantastic way for all of us to grow in our relationships with each other and in our relationship with Christ. Thank you Camp Shamineau!”

“The Forestview (School Group) fifth graders think a day at Camp Shamineau is Super because:

~ Horseback riding is exciting – it is usually the favorite
~ We love learning how to groom and take care of horses.
~ The staff helps us overcome our fears
~ The Zipline is Ziptastic! We can’t get enough
~ We never thought we could climb and complete the high ropes challenges
~ It is a special way to end our fifth grade year and celebrate and challenge ourselves with all of the amazing opportunities that Camp Shamineau offers.”
