    Right to Play Canada has announced they will be hosting a special basketball camp in the Manitoba community of Duck Bay from July 17 to 21, 2017.  Duck Bay is located 450 km north west of Winnipeg on Lake Manitoba.  The camp will be led by Cara Neufeld who has been a member of the Manitoba Bisons Women's Basketball Team and the Manitoba Provincial Team.  The camp is open to area children ages 8 and up.

    ​Right To Play is a global organization that uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity. It was founded in 20​00 by Johann Olav Koss, a four-time Olympic gold medalist and social entrepreneur. Through sports and games, we help children build essential life skills and better futures, while driving social change in their communities with lasting impact​.

    Right To Play works in more than 20 countries including Benin, Burundi, Canada, China, Ethiopia, Ghana, Jordan, Lebanon, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Pakistan, the Palestinian Territories (West Bank and Gaza), Panama, Rwanda, Tanzania, Thailand and Uganda.  They traditionally enter into countries with the greatest need, and responds to requests for programming by the government and/or communities in those countries.  The decision to implement programming is based on a careful assessment of need, organizational capacity and a secure source of funding. ​

    More information on the camp can be found below.
