Our names are Jason and Marnie Dyck and our two kids Coleman (14 years old) and Kymber (12 years old). Jason is self-employed as an Outfitter / guide for the past 30 years as well is the TV host and producer of “Jason Dyck's Guide Life” on Wild TV and the pursuit Channel. Marnie is also self-employed and is the owner of clean start cleaning services which is a large post-construction cleaning company in southern Manitoba .
Our kids are just like any others. They attend school during the week, homework after school, Sports and other social events in the evenings. Weekends are spent enjoying camping, fishing, hunting, ATV rides, movie Nights and hanging out with friends. The one small difference from most kids is we have a son Coleman who was born with trisomy 21 or in other words Down syndrome. To be honest when Coleman was first born it was very tough on all of us and like any other parent we went above and beyond to protect him as we thought he was that much more fragile then others. We soon learned that if he was just given the opportunity to do the same things as other kids that not only would he be able to do it but do it very well! Coleman has lived in an adventurous life from riding in an Argo several miles across the tundra to the Hudson Bay Coast to see the ocean and polar bears to flying in helicopters and airplanes all over the North and most recently was a cast member in a Hollywood movie called “The Parts you lose” starring Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad. So as you can see given a bit of opportunity they will succeed and have the time of their life doing it!
Our mission is to provide kids with mental or physical disabilities or life-threatening diseases as well as kids who are less fortunate the opportunity to go out fishing, hunting, camping, ATV’ing and any other outdoor activities. For example we would take several kids at a time with their parents or guardians out fishing for a day which would include lunch, prizes and games in a fun atmosphere with experienced guides and at absolutely no cost to the families! The plan is to have several events throughout the year. If this is something that would interest you or your child please contact us anytime!
