CMU Students Recognized for Work at Summer Camps
Three-and-a-half years—that’s how much time students at Canadian Mennonite
University (CMU) gave to camps in Canada and the U.S. this past summer.
A total of 18 students spent 184.5 weeks working at camps in Manitoba, B.C.,
Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Iowa. Each student was eligible for CMU’s
camp wage subsidy. This year a total of $5,627 was given to help them defray the
cost of studying at the university.
“We believe that camps provide a valuable service,” says CMU Director of
Enrolment Abe Bergen. “That’s why we like to support students who work at camps
each summer. There are few better opportunities for young adults to develop
their leadership gifts and make a significant difference in the lives of
children and teens.”
The camps the students worked at were Manitoba Pioneer Camp, Steeprock Bay Bible
Camp, Camp Moose Lake, Ryerson United Church Camp, Crooked Creek Christian Camp,
Silver Lake Mennonite Camp, Camps with Meaning, Shekinah, Camp Valaqua, Camp
Columbia, Thetis Island, Camp Elim and Manhattan Beach Retreat Centre.
