Send a Kid to Camp AXE-travaganza

An evening of friendly axe throwing competition to help enrich the lives of children in our community.

 Peterborough, ON – (March 20th, 2023) The Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation in partnership with Herod Financial Services, and supported by AON, Chemong Family Dental, KOMFS, Best Western Plus Otonabee Inn and Paris Marine, are excited to announce they are bringing back the Send a Kid to Camp AXE-travaganza fundraising event on Friday, May 5th at the Peterborough Axe Club.

“We are so excited to be able to bring this event back.  This is our major fundraiser that allows us to provide the summer camp experience to children involved with the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society.” says Carrie Truman, Executive Director of the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation “The format of the evening is a family friendly axe throwing competition, along with food, a photo booth and a silent auction.”

2023 is the 40th Anniversary of the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation. When the Foundation was established in 1983, sending kids to camp was our primary purpose.  We have expanded our scope of support, yet summer camp has remained a priority program.  Summer camp can offer disadvantaged children much more than a vacation.  Camp is also an opportunity to connect with new friends, to meet and build relationships with caring adults and counselors, and to get outside and just be a kid. Our goal is to foster feelings of inclusion and belonging in children and build their self-confidence – camp helps us do this.

Over the past 40 years, the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation has sent over 5340 kids to summer camp. Our goal is help 200 children involved with the Kawartha Haliburton Children’s Aid Society attend camp this summer.  By participating in the Send a Kid to Camp AXE-travaganza presented by Herod Financial Services, you can ensure local at-risk children have the opportunity to experience the joy of camp this summer. Tickets are available starting today for $50 per person.  There are two time slots of axe throwing fun available on May 5th at 5:30-7:30 p.m. or 8:00-10:00 p.m.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.khcas.on.ca/foundation/axe

Event sponsorship opportunities are still available, please reach out to carrie@k-hchildrensfoundation.com if you would like to learn more.
