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.

About Us

Manitoba Camping Association/Sunshine Fund is a registered charity that provides financial support to children and youth whose families experience financial barriers that prevent them from participating in healthy recreation activities. Each year, MCA, through the Sunshine Fund, sends around 600 children to various camp programs throughout Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario. 

Our goal is to raise enough money to provide more children the opportunity to experience camp and all that it has to offer, both now and in the future. 


MISSION - Play a leadership role in promoting and supporting the community of organized camps, encouraging the growth and recreational experiences for children, youth and families. 

VISION - To be the recognized leader in the Manitoba camps community.
