Spring 2014 grant deadline has passed. Watch here for the 2015 Deadline
The Kids To Camp Fund provides grants to camps enabling children and youth who reside in Kitchener, Waterloo and area and are in need of financial assistance to attend a variety of day, overnight, recreational and educational camps. In 2013, we sent 286 children and youth to various camps.
The Fund will consider applications for support from camps that:
- Are operated by local registered charitable organizations or local not-for-profit organizations who can partner and be sponsored by a registered charity;
- Provide day or residential camping opportunities to children and youth who reside in Kitchener, Waterloo and area and are in need of financial assistance or require specialized support to attend camp;
- Serve children under the age of 18 from the community-at-large including children with special needs (e.g. physical or mental challenges, major illness, survivors or witnesses of violence).
For information on grant applications, contact Chelsea Arnott.
