help send a kid to camp this summer!
Would you consider helping send a kid to camp this summer?  Anyone can donate to our Kids to Camp Fund, managed here at The Guelph Community Foundation.  Gifts of any size can make a big difference.  For some camps, a donation of $75 could subsidize a child for one full week of camp, and a gift of $150 - $350 can send a child for an entire month. 

Together as a community, we can help offer opportunities to kids who would otherwise not be able to afford to go.  The camp experience can be a life-changing one for kids, and a chance to make lasting friendships, witness positive leadership-in-action, learn important life skills, and an appreciation for nature and all it has to offer.

To donate by cheque, please make out to "The Guelph Community Foundation", with a note at the bottom indicating "Kids to Camp".  Cheques can be dropped off in person or mailed to our office at 46 Cork Street East, Guelph ON  N1H 2W8.  Tax receipts will be issued.
