2019 Kids to Camp Funding Announcement

While many of our local children and youth are already dreaming about summer, most parents are starting to feel the pressure building up as they prepare their pockets for summer camp registrations.

Thanks to our partnership with the Waterloo Region Record-Lyle S. Hallman Foundation Kids to Camp Fund, we are pleased to announce that $51,493.00 will be distributed to 24 Summer Camps this year, giving local children and youth the chance to attend their ideal summer camp despite financial difficulties.


The Kids to Camp Grants Program enables local camp organizers to offer camp fee subsidies for children and youth up to 17 years old coming from families that are feeling the struggle to make ends meet.
