TCF’s Executive Director, Connie Reid Camp said, “So far this year, we have helped over 180 children sign up for a camp.  Every year, children in our community enjoy the enriching experience of attending camp they might not have had without the Camps of Hope program.”  Camps of Hope helps to pay registration fees for families in need.  The Camps of Hope program is available throughout the year including March break, summer and winter breaks and for any type:  outdoor camp, arts, day camp, or sports.

Mark Kartusch, Executive Director with Highland Shores Children’s Aid thanked this group for directing their funds to The Children’s Foundation.  “At camp, children will learn new skills and build life-long friendships. These experiences help create healthy pathways for all kids. The Foundation ensures that access to that pathway remains open for kids whose families are facing financial difficulties. Thank you to the 100 Men Who Care Quinte group for selecting The Children’s Foundation”.
