DAMARCUS Pasiowetz is having a different summer camp experience this year, but a surprisingly fun one, too.

The 13-year-old was wary at first of Simonhouse Bible Camp’s

new online program — Damarcus was used to outdoor activities

and face-to-face friendships as integral to the summer camp

experience — but was quickly swayed when he realized the

virtual programming planned by the camp had its own unique 



“At first, I didn’t really want to attend, because camp, you

think of going into nature,” he said.

Endowment Fund

Why was this Fund Established?
The Sunshine Fund was created by the
Winnipeg Free Press and the Manitoba Camping
Association to assist children from low income
families to go to camp for an incredible,
life-changing experience.

Children’s lives are changed through camp
experiences: learning respect; improving
self-confidence; feeling a sense of community
and enjoying new experiences from positive role
models, helping them to succeed in life.

The MCA invested in an endowment fund with
The Winnipeg Foundation in 2002, to ensure
funding is available to send Manitoba children
and youth to camp For Good. Forever.
