Camp and Summer Program Grants

Health, Wellness & Recreation

Whether it’s a day at Assiniboine Park or a week in the wilderness, our Camp and Summer Program Grants help ensure all Winnipeg kids enjoy outdoor summer fun.

New! In September 2021, we launched our new Grants Application System, SmartSimple.
In order to apply for a Camp and Summer Program Grant, you must first create your organization’s profile in the system.

Video tutorials to walk you through the process are available here – SmartSimple videos. Or, access a PDF with the instructions here – Create a profile in our grant application system [PDF].

If you’re having difficulty setting up your profile, please email the Grants Team.

Eligibility

  • Your organization must have a registered charitable number from Canada Revenue Agency to apply for a Camp and Summer Program Grant. (This number is required to access the online application form.)
  • You may apply for one Camp and Summer Program Grant per calendar year. Organizations may apply for a Community Grant, or any special program grant, in the same year, but applications must be for different projects.

Criteria

Grants of up to $10,000 are available to charitable organizations for summer programs for children as well as to summer camps for registration subsidies. Grants benefit Winnipeg children and youth who face physical, health or socio-economic barriers.

Please review our Camp and Summer Program Grants Policies & Guidelines [PDF] to ensure your project fits the criteria.

Application Due Date

  • February 15th, 4:30 p.m. (notification of decision in May)

Note: If an application date falls on a weekend or holiday, applications will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. the next business day.

The online application form is active for approximately four weeks before the due date.
