Tent meeting at DBC

A bit of History

The Dauphin Bible Camp has a lot of history as the Canadian Sunday School Mission (CSSM) took over the camping program on April 1, 1964.

At that time, the main hall was used as a dining room, for classes, sports, chapel, and crafts.  Behind the main hall was the kitchen storage.  The camp had many buildings which were used for boys and girls cabins and residence cabins for the director and speaker.

Two new cabins, Poplar & Hawthorn, were then built in 1966. Beginning in late 1967 to 1968, a barn and corrals were built to facilitate the new attraction of horsemanship.  The main building was much too small and was not adequate to be used as a chapel, dining hall, kitchen, and craft shop.

In the winter of 1974-75, logs were cut and made into lumber so a new building could be built.  The new main building was able to be partially used in 1975.  Although it had no end walls, it was still a great place for games, etc., when it rained.  This building is still in use today and has been a great asset to camp. We are currently building a new kitchen/dining hall to replace the dining function of the building.

The camp was gaining in popularity.  So much so that in 1978, five new cabins were built.  This was a real asset to the camp and now many more campers could attend camp.  In 1979, a pool was added to the camp facilities.  An item much appreciated by campers and staff alike and in 1984, an infirmary (nurses cabin) was added.

As the camp continued to grow, two more cabins were added in the 1980’s and then boys and girls washrooms and a cooks’ quarters.

**This is our initial introduction into the history of the Dauphin Bible Camp. If you know some history that you feel should be added, please contact us so we can review it for inclusion on this page!

We feel that camp is...

  • A place to meet God through His Word and through the wonders of His creation.

  • An opportunity to get to know Jesus Christ personally as LORD and SAVIOR.

  • A time for learning, achieving, growing, and maturing through healthy activities.

  • A place to develop new friendships and to strengthen others by working, playing and worshiping together.

Our Purpose

"That we may present everyone perfect in Christ." - Colossians 1:28

For many kids, summer camp is the best week of the summer and for kids who love horses we have two camps this summer for your horse lover. 

For a few years now we have had a Teen horse camp. This camp is for ages 13 to 16. Teens spend all their skills and cabin time at the stables, they can bring their own horse or have a camp horse for the week that they groom and tack up themselves every day. They perform a musical ride and have a camp out with the horses.

We also run three Junior horse camps. These camps are for ages 8 to 12. Kids spend 3 of their 4 skills at the stables learning how to care for their horse and ride. They also have a cook out with the horses. Two camps are for beginners and one is an advanced junior horse camp for students who are confidant at the trot and are ready to try loping. Check out our camps schedule to check out these weeks.

We are always looking for more ways to make Dauphin Bible Camp a better place for campers, families & the community. With this in mind we have begun adding winter activities that encourage family time.

The Dauphin Bible Camp is please to announce the Dauphin Bible Camp Toboggan Hill (formerly known as Durston Hill). During the preparation phase for the construction of our new Kitchen Dining Hall we purchased the quarter that we are on which included Durston Hill. We realized that the hill had a lot of potential and was an important place for the community of Dauphin. So we have been working hard on making improvements to the hill to make it a safer place for families. Please contact our office for specifics regarding the toboggan hill or how you can be involved in making it a better place.

One of the growing concerns in Summer camping is the cost of registration fee's. We understand that parents should know why camping fees are increasing and demonstrate what those fees cover. In an effort to do this we have broken down some of the camping costs below and held them up against what we charge as a camp for registration fee's.

The largest increases over the years has been the introduction of GST on all camp fees, the increasing cost of proper camp insurance, increase of camping regulations and overall cost inflation.

Some of the Camping Fee's

  • Taxes - The GST is 5% on all registration fee's, and goods sold.
  • Meals - Meals at a restaurant generally cost a minimum of five dollars at a low cost establishment. Campers eat 16 meals at their time at camp averaging out to $80 per camper. Campers also receive 2 snacks a day equaling $15.00 per camper.
  • Accommodations - Accommodations are provided for at next to no cost, but even a basic Inn would potentially charge $80.00 per night for a child and an adult. We do not do that because that would be ridiculous and we are a non-profit organization.
  • Program Costs - Program costs cover the amount required to run each summer program. Some skills, such as sports, cost as little as $1.00 per camper to run. Others, such as horsemanship, may cost up to $30.00 per camper. Our camp runs ten skills resulting on average a $50.00-$75.00 camper cost for skills. Additional program costs such as chapel, books, wide games, DVD's, etc are not included in that cost.
  • Payroll - This is one of the highest cost as all summer workers must be screened to ensure they are not of any risk, trained and offered an honorarium. During a full week the camp will be running around 50 workers. The cost of the honorarium alone for these workers is over $50.00 per camper during a packed week. During a non packed week the costs are higher.
  • Insurance & Levy's - It seems that this price increases every year. Right now the cost is around $15.00 - $20.00 per camper based on our current camper numbers.

So far we have totaled up $235 dollars and that does not include the costs of medical, utilities, office, maintenance, janitorial, worker training, upgrades, etc.

The Dauphin Bible Camp firmly believes in keeping summer camps affordable and available to all children. All together Dauphin Bible Camp's registration fee's are approximately half of the current cost to operate a summer camp. The rest of the camp costs are covered by donations.

If you would like more information about summer camp costs please contact us!

Concept of the game


The goal of the game is for campers to find the message that Maid Marian wants delivered to Robin Hood which is scattered throughout the playing field, hidden in tins. Once they find a tin they take it to Nottingham and try to unscramble the message; Nottingham is also where they can get more money if theirs is taken away. They are also avoiding the Sheriff and his tax collectors who will stop them to see if they have any money and if they don’t then they have to go to jail. Meanwhile the rest of the cabin leaders are all running around with roles of their own. Prince John and his Army want to eliminate Robin Hood and protect their treasury, and Robin Hood and the Merry Men are trying to save people from jail, steal from the treasury and help the campers find Marian’s message. The game ends when the message is solved.

People of Nottingham (Team 1)-no flagging tape

  • Start at Nottingham
  • Collect Tins To unscramble the message
  • Once Maid Marion knows the entire message the people of Nottingham and robin hood and the merry men win
  • Start the game with 2 coins
  • Watch out for the Tax collectors and Prince John’s Army

Tax collectors (team 2) - Blue Flag tape

  • Led by the sheriff
  • Start at prince johns castle
  • Catch people of Nottingham and tax them one coin (if they do not have a coin they must go to jail)
  • Must walk with them to jail
  • Running away from merry men 

Merry Men (Team 3) - Green Flag Tape

  • Can start anywhere
  • Free Prisoners (Run into the jail without being caught, take one prisoner with them and go out into the forest, don’t have to go all the way to Nottingham)
  • Catch Tax Collectors (Tax collector hands over any money they have and any prisoners that are with them) Tax collector can run and leave the prisoners behind if they do not want to get tagged
  • Take coins back to Nottingham for the poor
  • Rob Prince John’s Treasury (Run into the castle and find treasury and take a handful of coins to take back to Nottingham )
  • Can be Caught by Prince John’s Army 

Prince John’s Army (Team 4) - Yellow Flag Tape

  • Catch People of Nottingham and Merry Men
  • If they catch a Merry Man they take all of their money and put it back into the treasury and take them to jail
  • If they catch a Person of Nottingham they must either take all of their money, or take them to jail, or take any tins they have and re hide them. 

Maid Marion

  • Either collects tins or stays to help unscramble message
  • Exempt from being taxed and also anyone with her cannot be taxed
  • Prince John’s Army may catch her and escort her to jail, but she can just leave right away
  • Any people of Nottingham with her must run because they can be put in jail by the army 


  • Catches people of Nottingham
  • Takes all money from People of Nottingham
  • Cannot put anyone in jail 

Robin Hood

  • Catch Tax Collectors and take all of their money
  • Rob Treasury and can take whole bucket
  • Can get caught by Prince John’s Army and goes to jail
  • If he gets into jail to free people, there is a jail break 

Prince John


  • Can catch anyone and take all of their money and take them to jail
  • If Robin Hood is caught and Prince John is at the castle he may order his guards to collect Maid Marion
  • Once Maid Marion is at the jail she must decide to either
    • Stay in Jail herself for the rest of the game
    • Flip a coin Heads there is a jail break, Tails Robin Hood is executed (game goes on without him)

If you are a parent who never went to camp yourself it might take a while to realize that summer camp is more than babysitting. Camps provide a safe, healthy, positive, supervised environment where children will grow and experience a true community of their peers.

So, if your children are facing another aimless summer, but you aren’t sure what summer camp is all about, here are 10 reasons why your kids need camp.

1. Summer Camps are safe and held to strict guidelines for campers. We select staff that have the well being of their campers as their highest priorities. For some family environments, it might be a safer choice than a mismatch of summer childcare.

2. Summer Camps build quality relationships. Summer Camp is the only place where children can build quality relationships with their peers and cabin leaders. Where else can an eight year old boy receive such attention and friendship from an 18 year old? School is so segregated that children do not build bonds with older children. Friendships are also so much deeper as they are living with their peers for six days, 24 hours a day

3. Summer Camps are a place of acceptance. Riley was a young man with a speech disorder. Although he had a hard time being in public or fitting into school he decided to attend summer camp. The time that he spent at summer camp was all he needed. His confidence soared. Every child, not just special needs children, have the opportunity to reinvent themselves at camp. It is a place where past labels are dropped and new beginnings can take place.

4. Summer Camps allow campers to grow as a community, apart from the pressure of parents or teachers. They can decide what clothes to wear, what activities to sign up for, what to get at the snack shack, etc. It is a rare opportunity for children to make their own decisions, and they have to live with those choices. Sometimes poor choices are made and that is part of learning. The staff members provide a safety net, providing a watchful eye ensuring that your daughter does not live on a diet of snack food and that your son changes his clothes.

5. Summer Camps provides a break from the stresses of family life. For parents it might be a time for a vacation or much needed time for themselves to refresh. Children can get off the couch or computer, leave behind their neighborhood, and experience the outdoors in a whole new way.

6. Summer Camps are a place of moral learning. We at Dauphin Bible Camp are a non-denominational Christian camp and as such adhere to moral standards in speech, attitude, and actions. Campers and staff alike must respect and help each other.

7. Summer Camps bring out every child’s strengths so that they can succeed and belong, gain self confidence, be a part of a team, feel safe and accepted. We also have camps that are designed for a specific childs strengths including horse camp, media camp, special needs camp, and golf camp.

8. Summer Camps help It is said that as soon as a child is born you begin the process of letting go. Parents need to allow their children to develop and grow into the independent adults that they are destined to become. Often camp separation is harder on the parents than it is on the camper. This allows for the growth of campers and parents alike so that future separations, like college, are easier.

9. Summer Camps provide unique activities that no parent or school can provide. We provide horsemanship, archery, riflery, card making, BMX biking, sports, drama, journalism, nature lore, swimming, golf, campfires, team builders, and more in one week.


10. Summer Camp means community living. For children who don’t have siblings, who have never had to share a room or speak up and be assertive to get their needs met, it is a wonderful lesson in patience, tolerance and interpersonal skills. Camp lets kids put into practice the life skills that their parents try to teach them all winter.

Hey everyone, we are Andrew and Tasha Sevigny and we serve as the Camp Directors here at Dauphin Bible Camp. Together we have 21 years of camp experience and counting.

Andrew grew up going to Carberry Bible Camp as a camper and later moved on to beginning working in the kitchen, doing maintenance, cabin leading, and program directing at Valley View Bible Camp. Following the 7 years at Valley View I came up here to DBC where I served two summers as the program director. The following year we got married and both served at Gimli Bible Camp, where I looked after the Leadership Development Program. In Spring 2012 we moved to Dauphin to work full time here at DBC.

Tasha grew up going to Gimli Bible Camp and served for 6 summers there, working in the kitchen, cabin leading, head cabin leading, and program directing. Tasha currently is the Head Wrangler here at DBC where she leads our summer program, as well as teaches lessons to those in the community during the spring and fall seasons.

Both Andrew and Tasha graduated from Providence University College (formerly Providence College), in Otterburne Manitoba. Andrew and Tasha both studied Youth Ministry, with Andrew minoring in Theatre and Tasha in Business.

We are both happy to be serving at DBC and are excited about what the Lord is doing not only in our own lives, but in the lives of each and every person that attends the camp.

We believe in:

1. Divine inspiration and consequent authority of the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. By the term "Divine inspiration" we mean the truthfulness and authority of both the Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written Word of God, without error in all that it affirms in the original manuscripts and the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

2. The doctrine of the Trinity, one God revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit,  Creator of all things, infinitely perfect.

3. The Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His miraculous conception, humanity, miracles, bodily resurrection, ascension and return.

4. The personality of the Holy Spirit whose ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell,  guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.

5. The total depravity of man who was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death; and  that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are incapable of pleasing  God, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility become culpable  sinners, utterly lost, and only through being born again through faith in our Lord  Jesus Christ, in whom we have redemption through His blood, can salvation and  spiritual life be obtained.

6. The resurrection of the body, the eternal life of the saved, the eternal punishment of the lost; after death all men continue in conscious existence, the  believers being "absent from the body but present with the Lord," the lost in  everlasting conscious torment.

7. The personality of Satan as a created being and an adversary of God.


"Jesus we preach, warning every man in all wisdom,

that we may present everyone perfect in Christ!"

-Colossians 1:28
