Unlocking the power of camp for more

What is Rouge Gives?

Rouge Gives is a registered not-for-profit organization focused on making camp more accessible for families with financial need and for families with children living with special needs.  We firmly believe that the power of camp is instrumental to camper development as they grow into confident and contributing members of society.
