Every year, children in our communities enjoy the enriching experience of attending camp in the summer and throughout the year, through the Camps of Hope Program. Camps of Hope helps cover the cost of registration fees for children to attend camp. We strive to give all children and youth the opportunity to experience the fun of being a child and to not be excluded from the activities their friends are enjoying.
With so many activities (such as swimming, camp and sports) being cancelled this summer due to the ongoing pandemic, we are committed to finding new, creative ways to support the well-being and healthy development of children & youth involved with Highland Shores Children’s Aid.
The Children’s Foundation “Summer Fun Kits” will allow children & youth the opportunity to participate in recreational and life-skill activities that they would normally receive at summer camp, safely and independently.
The value of play for children, especially during times of stress and uncertainty, cannot be underestimated. Summer Fun Kits encourage children & youth to be outdoors and to participate in activities that require physical and creative engagement, imagination and exploration.
In partnership with community donors and local businesses, we will provide recreational equipment, supplies and resources for home so that kids can get back to the important work of childhood ~ play!
How Does It Work?
While children and youth are at home and are lacking the resources they need for physical and creative play and learning, we will continue to support them in developing their interests, enhancing their growth and development, building their self-worth, and fostering the skills they need to reach their full potential.
YOU CAN HELP
A donation of $100 will provide an activity kit to one child to help them get active, trigger their imagination , or support learning and development.
Recreational kits will be delivered to families’ homes by HSCA workers & our team of volunteers.
The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and the community is our number one priority and we are taking extra precautions when packaging and delivering all Summer Fun Kits using recommended safety protocols
