A popular football camp for kids from low-income homes is coming back, again with a Blue Bombers great at the helm. On Tuesday, KidSport Winnipeg and retired Bombers tackle Doug Brown announced that the KidSport football camp would return for the fourth year in a row. On April 20, Brown and other current and former Bombers will gather to help kids develop their football and leadership skills. The camp is open to any young athlete who received funding to play football from KidSport, which is a national non-profit administered here by Sport Manitoba.
