Financial Assistance for Summer Campers
At Camps with Meaning, we feel every child should have the opportunity to go to camp. Campers’ lives are transformed as they build relationships, try new skills and activities, encounter positive young adult role models and are exposed to Christian worship and teaching. We want everybody to have this opportunity.
There are several sources of financial assistance for families who are not able to afford the camp fees. First there is the Manitoba Camping Association’s Sunshine Fund, This fund has been set up expressly for the purpose of sending campers to camp and has been used by hundreds of Manitoba families. A streamlined application form helps determine the amount of assistance needed, based on income level and number of children. The Manitoba Camping Association has more information and can assist with the application.
Secondly, Camps with Meaning has funds available to families who have already approached the Sunshine Fund and for some reason still require funding. Please inquire with our office. We also provide assistance upon request with items such as bedding, luggage, hygiene items, and clothing.
If you are in a position to help a camper attend camp, please donate online or by calling our office.
