Camp for Kids Campaign

Become a Camp Champ

Last spring, there wasn't much that 8 year old Ashley was looking forward to with summer approaching. With a difficult family situation and little money to make ends meet in her household, the school-yard talk of other children's summer holidays and upcoming camp was making Ashley very sad. That turned around the day her Children's Aid worker told her there might be an opportunity for her to go to camp!

For many of the children involved with York Region Children's Aid Society (York CAS), childhood experiences like camp are simply not possible.  Many families struggle to provide even the basics for their children.

But you can change that.  With your support, you will help to ensure a deserving child has a camp experience. Positive, confidence-building experiences that are so often a part of camp help children and youth develop to their potential.  For York CAS kids, camp also provides a break from difficult family and childhood situations, and can be an important strategy in helping to keep a child in their family setting while addressing child welfare concerns.

PLEASE, make your donation today.  There is a child who needs your help.

As for Ashley, she spent a week immersed in theatre arts made possible through community support. Ashley beamed as a star of the Friday show.
