The fund, established in 2014, supports children from lower income families by sending kids aged 7 to 12 to week-long overnight summer camps. Preference is given to families living on the Saanich Peninsula but all applications are considered.

Kamps for Kids creates life-changing opportunities to live away from home, possibly for the first time, being in a cabin with other peers while also learning confidence and independence. Families choose the camp they wish their child to attend, generally Camp Pringle, but any registered charity camp is considered.Learn more and apply at kampsforkids.org.
