Summer Camp Fund

Every year, the KHCF Summer Camp Program offers every child receiving services from the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society with either a one-week residential or two-week day camp experience. The Summer Camp Fund allows the child to chose between a number of camps where they are included without distinction despite coming from very difficult life circumstances.  Along side their peers, our campers are able to experience the joy and excitement of a week at summer camp.

Children with physical and/or behavioral difficulties are also supported through this program. Children who have met barriers in the past, are now able to attend a traditional camp, and experience summer in an environment specifically suited to their needs.

During the summer of 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we introduced Soaking Up Summer, an alternative program designed to encourage children and youth to get outside and have fun.  Thank you to all our partners and donors for helping us provide equipment and toys to 675 children through this initiative.  We will do this again in 2021 if the pandemic continues to restrict a child ability to attend summer camp.

Since 1993, donors have sent over 5,140 children to summer camp.
