Position Description

Pathway Camp Ministries has been serving the children and youth of Indigenous communities in Manitoba since 2007, providing quality Day Camps and youth events to those who would not be able to access traditional camp programming due to issues of distance and community isolation. Over the years, programs have been taken by road, by winter road, by ferry, and by air into partner communities, with over 500 children being served annually.

Programming was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic as remote communities protected their people by suspending access to all non-residents.
