Financial Assistance

*Important Note: Regardless of which sponsorship method you choose, you must first register your child for camp. If you wait until you’ve been approved for funding, there may not be any spots left for your preferred week, and we will not be able to accommodate you. You can either apply via mail-in, where you will be required to pay a $50 deposit, or apply online where a full payment will be necessary. If you are approved for 100% funding, you will be reimbursed these amounts.

Every child deserves the opportunity to go to camp regardless of race, faith, family income, or special needs. Camp is a place where everyone belongs.

The Manitoba Camping Association Sunshine Fund is here to help children experience the benefits of camp. We would not be able to provide this support without the generous support of our donors and granting agencies.

To apply for financial assistance, please visit the Manitoba Camping Association‘s website to find out if you qualify and fill out the sunshine fund application. If you qualify, the maximum subsidy amount is $700.00 per child per year.
