Do You Have What it Takes???
MCA staff is issuing you a challenge.

     We don't think you can beat us at bowling. 

          This is your chance to prove us wrong. We dare you.

Bowling Extravaganza
for our member camps

Thurs October 25, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Rossmere Lanes, 1042 Henderson Hwy.


We will order a few snacks (chicken fingers, fries, popcorn) for those who attend and people can order their own beverage.

Spots aren't filling up quickly, please sign up today.

Email Rick at or text him at 204.293.7339 to sign up.

Any team with the ability to beat us will win adoration from the camping world and will have their faces plastered all over MCA social media.

Even if you can't beat us, this will be a great opportunity to come out, have some fun, maybe meet a new friend and eat some fun food.

Why miss this? YOU will be disappointed if you do.

Throughout the year, we work hard to identify, develop and deliver effective, engaging and relevant training to boards, staff and volunteers.


Our in-house workshops are a great way to build those essential skills needed to further your career in the non-profit and voluntary sectors.

MCA and the Sunshine Fund have partnered with a major matching gift sponsor for our #GivingTuesday appeal. This donor will match any donation dollar-for-dollar up to $8,000. Details are still being finalized. We will share more info as we approach #GivingTuesday.


This is a great opportunity to get the word out that this is a great way to ensure that the Sunshine Fund can continue to send children to your camps. Share this information with your community.
