summer fun for everybody.
underprivileged background camps
Everyone deserves to have fun.
It's likely that you won't be able to tell the difference between these camps and a traditional summer camp - it's a similar setting, and you'll still be there to help your campers have a summer to remember.
Most often, these campers are supported by non-profit agencies, who are dedicated to providing free- or reduced-fee summer camp opportunities to children who otherwise could not go. Campers might come for a week or for the whole summer.
facilities and accommodation
Facilities at these camps will be similar to a traditional camp - you'll have simple cabins, most often with electricity and water.
You'll have all the basics provided, and you'll have a classic Canadian summer experience. Most of your time will be spent in the great outdoors, so accommodations will be the last thing on your mind.
underprivileged camp activities
The beauty of summer camp is that it's all about simple outdoor activities - you'll get just about the same experience as you will at any other camp.
Whatever activity you love, you can teach it at camp - from dance to tennis or photography. You don't need to be an expert - the campers are just there to have an enjoyable summer and have fun while learning new skills.
These campers are from all walks of life - and you'll be able to help them grow and learn every day. You'll teach them to embrace the simple beauty of life in a setting that's impossible not to appreciate.
Of course, when all is said and done, you might get out a whole lot more than you expect. Working with underprivileged campers might just have a big impact on you - and remind you that no matter where you come from, all that matters is appreciating where you are.
