Illness often isolates children from their friends and the activities they love. The Camp Scholarship Program allows children in remission to reconnect with those friends and activities. The program is offered for free, and provides funding for a camp of their choice; sports, music, art, science, horseback riding, water skiing or other activities they missed most during treatment.
The Scholarship Program took shape around the idea: find a need and fill it, find a hurt and heal it. A simple act of compassion, so often overlooked; that’s what the children and families need. What could be more powerful?
We strive to put a smile on a child’s face, by letting them choose a camp to go to after finishing treatment and being well enough to attend a regular camp. To register, see below.
Help us send more kids to camp
Help us to put a smile on a child’s face again. We need your support to send children with illnesses to camp, and to deliver backpacks to more children! We are fully supported by private donors, and only with your help, we will be able to increase our support for these children.
Donate Today online or by calling 905-477-7743!
