Chance 2 Camp is the core program funded by the Foundation and a project near and dear to our heart. Summer Camperships to a maximum of $400.00 per child are awarded to children who, because of economic circumstances in their families, would not otherwise have the opportunity for a summer camp experience.
It is simple to apply and we would be happy to provide you with any other additional information!
Step by step process:
Step 2– Visit the Manitoba camping association website: Find a Camp
From there you are able to click on the camp of choice and download the camp registration form from their website. Individual websites will include what the camp is all about and their activities, along with important dates.
The camps listed below have been the most popular, as chosen by campers and parents, in the last 3 years. They are all accredited and have proven to be very good, active camps. Feel free to check out their websites for more information about each camp:
Step 3– Make sure the family contribution is the correct total. Cheques can be made out to Child and Family Services of Central Manitoba; cash is preferable, as well as money orders.
Step 4– Mail everything together. Double check that everything is signed properly. Mail your application to this address:
