You can still DONATE HERE

Final total: $30,255


Thank you to everyone who joined us throughout the past two days for our "A Place to Grow Radiothon" in support of Camp Arnes.

This year we were broadcasting live in Winnipeg, giving you the chance to swing by (safely) and take part.

Visitors came to say hi to us at North Kildonan MB Church (1315 Gateway Rd.) They were able to check out the drive-thru tuck shop for some free treats, buy a hoodie, and let the kids try out the pedal carts.

Because we are doing our radiothon right in the city we have a chance to actually have people come by and be part of some interactive elements. We are giving people a chance to come by and tell their Camp Arnes story in a creative way.

God has impacted the hearts of so many people in the Winnipeg area through their relationships and time spent at Camp so we are going to put together a mural reflecting that impact. You can come and put your mark on it and in the end it will be this amazing art piece of art of people’s stories woven together. 

Day 1

The CHVN family is showing once again they are Manitoba's most generous audience. A steady flow of donations came in all morning, and by Noon we reached nearly $10,000!

Families are stopping by, sharing their stories and love for Camp Arnes. We were visited by a family who has been the recipient of Camp Arnes's prayers since the winter and received good news regarding their grandfather's health.

Paul, a board member at Camp Arnes, says that after he spoke on the radio people he has known for over 25 years have been reaching out to connect after not chatting for years. 

One girl, Taya, was going to buy ice cream to combat the heat, but instead came with her mom to donate her ice cream money to Camp Arnes!
