OAKVILLE, ON, April 12 /PRNewswire/ - The Tim Horton Children's Foundation Year Round Group Program offers schools and youth agencies, serving economically disadvantaged children and youth, a chance to experience a camping adventure of a lifetime. Throughout the year, the Tim Horton Children's Foundation partners with more than 120 local youth organizations and schools to provide deserving children and youth a chance to attend one of six camps, at no cost to them or their families, generating more opportunities for them to benefit from a camp experience.
"Our Year Round program give's even more children and youth a chance to experience what camp life is all about," said Dave Newnham, Vice President, Tim Horton Children's Foundation. "Our goal is to provide an environment where they can learn new things, build positive relationships and trust, develop confidence and experience new opportunities."
By inviting groups of children to camp in the fall, winter and spring, the Foundation has the opportunity to maximize the use of its first-class camp facilities outside of the summer months and reach out to even more children in our communities.
