Bowlathon

At Hidden Acres Mennonite Camp and Retreat Centre, it is our goal to provide a welcoming, peaceful gathering place where diverse groups of people experience life-giving connections with God, one another, and nature. One of the ways we do this is by ensuring we have well-maintained facilities and up-to-date equipment. Our Annual Bowlathon provides a significant part of the financial base needed for this to happen.

Creating a team is a great way to for a group of people to work together to help Hidden Acres achieve its goal. By clicking the “Create a TEAM” button above, you are doing three things, creating a free Canada Helps account, creating a personal fundraising page (as above) and creating a team page with yourself as team captain. A team captain can log into the “team” account do things like editing the team page, inviting others to join the team and sending messages to team members. Any donations to the team will be tracked by both a team total and individual team member’s totals.
