Facility – Families

At MBC, we understand that our facility enables our mission. And so, each year we look for opportunities to continue improving our facility with our “rooted in faith and family” mission in mind.

In 2021 we added two new family cottages to our roster of accommodations. “Summerset C” and “Summerset D” are 3 bedroom, 2 bath units that are perfect for larger families or extended family gatherings. These cottages completely sold out in 2021- even before we could get pictures of them onto our website! In preparation for summer 2022, we are renovating the Summerset A & B cottages with new kitchens, windows, flooring, and furnishings. We trust that families will be blessed by their time in these cottages while participating in the ministry of MBC.

We recognize that each family has different needs when they are looking for a home-base for their stay at MBC. We strive to offer a variety of options with varying price points, ranging from tent and trailer sites for the more adventurous, to hotel-style and cottage accommodation options. Our Cabins are the favourite choice of many families – 2 bedrooms plus a sitting room at a great price point. Our website has everything you need to find the right option for your family!  

Our recreation amenities also enable our mission. During the summer, the marina is one of the best places to make family memories. This year we are building a new Marina “Paddle Shack”, where you can rent canoes, kayaks, paddle boards and fishing boats, while also grabbing a snack or cold drink. Be sure to check out the new outboard motors on our fishing boats, too!

Facility – Kids

What’s more fun than a new playground?   Nothing is more fun than a new playground! 

If you were at MBC in the summer of 2021, your kids or grandkids may have played on our new climber for smaller children or the new swingset at the Fellowship Centre. For 2022, we are adding a new giant climber for the older kids. This will replace the wooden ‘ark’ playground that has been a source of joy for many years but has reached the point where it must be replaced.  

Our guests tell us about how their kids make new friends in the playground and how the parents connect with one another as they watch the kids play.

We can’t wait for the kids in your family to try out these new playground additions!
