The annual event hosted by Doug Brown, CFL Hall of Famer and Blue Bomber Alumni invites kids from all across Manitoba to participate free of charge. The football camp allows the kids to learn from local football greats and spend time learning on the field and give them a brief taste of a what a combine is like.
Kids who attend the camp have been funded by KidSport to play football. The majority are from low-income families, single-parent and foster families, the new immigrant & refugee community and other underfunded populations. Kids from the Spence Neighbourhood Association, Immigrant and Refugee Community of Manitoba (IRCOM), The Boys and Girls Club and the Winnipeg Youth Football Program were part of this year’s batch.
