Every year camps in York Region have experienced an increasing number of requests for financial assistance and support for campers with exceptionalities. The global pandemic seems to have only increased this need. Further launching Rouge Gives allows us to:
Provide volunteer hours to deserving and qualified students (only available for charities and not-for-profits).
Apply for Canada Summer Jobs subsidies to create up to 100% subsidized paid jobs for students (only available for charities and not-for-profits).
Apply for additional funding opportunities available to not-for-profits to send more kids to camp.
Create an avenue with the larger community to make camp more accessible for more families. In other words: unlocking the power of camp for more!
