The Our Kids Children’s Fund

Summer Camp Bursary

Helping ensure that more kids, more often, are able to go to camp.

 

Camp changes the lives of children and youth. A camp experience will grow self-confidence and foster new skills; it will build emotional intelligence and life skills that contribute to becoming a healthy and happy adult. The more children that attend summer camp, the better our future will be.

The Our Kids Children’s Fund provides camp bursaries (sometimes called camp scholarships, camperships or financial aid) to help remove some of the financial barriers that exist between families, campers, and camp.


Who is eligible and how are funds distributed?


How to apply?

Eligible applications for the Our Kids Children’s Fund Camp Bursary must be submitted by Camp Directors or their proxies, on behalf of the parent/child. If you are a child or parent requesting funding, please share this fund with your camp and they will apply on your behalf.

Families

All applications are confidential and will be seen only by members of the governing board for the purposes of assigning and disbursing funds. Bursaries are provided to offset session fees for both day and overnight camps in Canada which are Our Kids member camps. Disbursements will not exceed 50% of the session fee.

Camps

About Our Kids Children’s Fund

In 1997, Our Kids Media was launched to make more families aware of the benefits of summer camp. More than 20 years later, our mission remains the same, namely to grow awareness around a core concept: camp as an experience. Our work is based on a fundamental understanding of the value of camp in the lives of children.

We see the Children’s Fund as a continuation of the goal of bringing those benefits to a wider audience. Most importantly, it’s an opportunity to ensure that more kids, more often, are able to go to camp.
