Campership Program

In Manitoba, over 24,000 single-parent families live under Canada's poverty line, unfortunately these are the kids that need Camp the most. Each year thousands of children have the chance to make friends, build relationships and experience adventures in a safe and comfortable environment at BB Camp.

Many youth are unable to attend BB Camp for a variety of reasons and the demand for campership funds is greater than ever before. Through your investment in the campership fund, you are ensuring that these children get to experience BB Camp, cultivating stronger leadership, building community and creating broad smiles.

We would love to see your children at BB Camp; experiencing new things, meeting new friends and enjoying the sleepover of the summer!
