Campaigns & Fundraising: Help Kids go to Camp

Each year, thousands of youth from across Canada experience the joys of summer camp, but not every family can afford the registration fees. In order to ensure every kid can attend a summer camp, Scouts Canada created the Help Kids Go to Camp campaign—a campaign that raises funds that support low-income kids and their families.

All kids—in Scouting and outside of Scouting—and their families can apply to attend one of Scouts Canada’s summer camps. Funds raised directly support kids from across Canada to give them the chance to experience a summer of adventures, friendships and fun.

 

Scouts Canada wants every kid to experience camp this summer and is calling on all Canadians to give to the Help Kids Go to Camp campaign.

“Camp has given me a lot of amazing life experiences, and taught me how to be independent and to be more outgoing. Some of my best friends are still people that I met at camp.”
