Spend your holiday weekend at Rocky Mountain Mennonite Camp for the annual Work and Play Retreats! In exchange for your help with camp projects during the retreat, there is no charge for the weekend.

On Saturday, participants will help with a variety of projects (spring cleaning, outdoor projects, painting, setting up summer recreation equipment, helping in the kitchen, and more!).  There will be work projects for all ages, even for children as appropriate. Parents with small children are asked that one parent cares for their child while the other parent works. 

Sunday is the “play” part of the weekend including a morning worship service and brunch, leaving the afternoon for hiking, playing on the pond, or taking a nap!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have wi-fi?

A Wi-Fi signal is in various locations around camp. Because of camp’s remote location and availability of high internet speeds, video or music streaming is not available.

Can you accommodate my dietary restrictions?

As much as possible, the camp will accommodate dietary restrictions. An option will be given to list all of your dietary restrictions during registration. We cannot accommodate dietary preferences. 

RMMC is not a peanut/nut free location since we serve a variety of campers and guest groups utilizing their own kitchen facilities.
