Fund helps send children to camp
Haliburton Highlands: cottage country and home to the natural beauty of lakes and forests. Haliburton Highlands: home to many amazing camps for children and teens. Haliburton Highlands: one of the poorest counties in Ontario. So many of our children and teens would benefit from all that the camp experience has to offer but so many of our families cannot afford to send their children to camp. The average cost to send a child/youth to camp is $800 per week for residential camp and $225 per week for day camp.
Since 1987, the Haliburton County Summer Camp Fund has helped children and youth build self-esteem, friendships, skills and memories at summer camp that will last a lifetime. Our goal is to raise $9,000 so we can send as many children with physical, developmental, social or behavioural challenges to camp. All children sponsored through your donations are Haliburton County residents who attend local schools and who will attend local camps.
Please make camp a reality for our kids who need it most. With your tax deductible donation to the Haliburton County Summer Camp Fund (sponsored by Point in Time Centre for Children, Youth and Parents), you can help send a child to camp this summer. Please make you cheque payable to Haliburton County Summer Camp Fund and mail to Point in Time Centre for Children, Youth and Parents, 69 Eastern Ave., Haliburton ON.
