This year, our walkathon and fundraising is supporting sending kids -- kids who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity -- to summer camp. The United Church of Canada has a long history of camping for kids: with camps across Canada, kids from all denominations are welcomed to a week of fun, friendship, and faith-building. The emphasis is always on building relationships -- with one another, with the environment and social issues, and with their faith.
Our plan is to raise at least $2,000 (most of this comes through direct donations to the church, but Canada Helps is a good way to donate too!). It costs about $500 for a week of camping -- inclusive of transportation, leadership, all meals and snacks, activities, accommodation, and a lifetime of friendships and memories.
Please donate generously to give a kid a once-in-a-lifetime gift of camping.
