Help Camp Kawartha emerge from the COVID-19 crisis stronger and more resilient, as it approaches it's 100th anniversary in 2021.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt every aspect of our daily lives, it has not only interrupted the school year for children, but has now forced the closure of summer camps for 2020, a time when kids need it the most for their mental health.
Camp is an experience that children look forward to all year long – from seeing their friends again, trying new activities, sleeping in a tent under the stars on a canoe trip, and developing leadership skills. It is an experience that doesn’t just last a couple weeks, but creates memories that last a lifetime.
Having worked at the camp for over 18 years, I’ve heard first hand from parents, and grandparents, about what a difference camp has made in the lives of their children, from building self-esteem, to gaining confidence to try new things.
Help Ensure Camp Kawartha is around for another 100 years!
Since 1921, Camp Kawartha has been providing summer camp and enriching outdoor experiences for children and youth of all ages. But with no revenue coming in due to the COVID-19 lockdown, and a health centre that is in need of replacement before next summer, the camp needs our help to get through this rough patch.
100 km Walking Challenge
For exercise during the pandemic lockdown, and for my own mental health, I’ve been going on regular walks (it's also good for my arthritis). So, to help keep me motivated and raise funds to support a great cause, I'm challenging myself to walk at least 2 km, 2-3 times a week throughout the summer until I reach 100 km.
All money raised through this fundraiser goes directly to Camp Kawartha. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated.
