Our Mission
The Mission of KIDS IN CAMP is to make the wonder of a camp experience available to kids from all backgrounds. As
they learn about themselves and others in a camper-focused program, they gain positive memories that will last a lifetime.
The camp experience teaches cooperation, acceptance of others, sportsmanship, tolerance and an environmental ethic in
a unique way that is impossible to duplicate elsewhere. Each year KIDS IN CAMP will sponsor children to attend one
of over 300 camps throughout Ontario, all accredited by the Ontario Camps Association.
Our Vision
Every child deserves the opportunity to play, have fun, and make friends in a safe camp environment. Our vision is that no
child would be prevented from attending camp due to financial considerations. We are committed to helping as many
children as possible participate in this unique opportunity.
Our Values
Equity ¥ Empathy ¥ Accountability ¥ Quality
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
2013 was a banner year for KIC! There is no experience for a child quite like a summer camp experience, but especially
for those who might not be able to attend camp without the financial assistance from KIC. In partnership with the camp
of the child's choice, along with the parents themselves, in 2013 we were able to financially
assist 305 children attend 51 different OCA accredited camps for a total of 664 weeks.
However, we could not begin to assist so many children, or in fact any children at all, to enjoy a
memorable summer camp experience each year without a legion of passionate volunteers who
give so freely of their time. KIC is totally a volunteer-driven organization and is managed by a
Board of eight Directors who are all current or former OCA Camp Owners and/or Directors.
KIC is a registered charity. We do not have an endowment fund of any kind. To carry out our
mission and mandate each year, we absolutely rely on and are most grateful to: our wonderful
donors, fundraising partners, supporters of all KIC-related events, corporate sponsors, and the OCA accredited camps
that provide the summer experiences that last a lifetime. Individual donations to KIC may be made securely through our
website at any time.
We look forward, proudly and with excitement, to the opportunity to send many more children to camp in 2014 and the
summers to come.

2013 FUNDRAISING EVENTS
THE GRAND KIC, APRIL 9, 2013
A large crowd of camp leaders and supporters gathered
at the Eglinton Grand in Toronto to enjoy one another’s
company, drinks, dinner and a silent auction followed by
an engaging conversation between Steve Paikin, of
TVO’s The Agenda and Cynthia Wesley-Esquimaux,
Ph. D. on the topic, Sharing Our Canadian Roots. The
Hon. Carolyn Bennett, M.D., M.P., Member of the
Parliamentary Committee for Aboriginal Affairs and
Northern Development, introduced the speakers.
Cynthia, Chippewa of Georgina Island First Nation and
Vice Provost (Aboriginal Affairs) at Lakehead University,
has devoted her life to building bridges of understanding
between people. She strongly believes that for diverse
cultures to live side by side with respect, we begin the
process with a conversation.
We are grateful to Carolyn Bennett, Steve Paikin and
Cynthia Wesley-Esquimaux for their contribution to the
event. We acknowledge the efforts of Chairs, Barb and
Peter Gilbert, and their planning committee. We are
grateful to all those who supported the event with their
attendance and participation resulting in raising $8,000
to send children to camp.

PASS THE MUSIC ON, March 1, 2013
All evening long, Toronto’s Revival Bar rocked with the music of Steven Page of Barenaked Ladies fame at a fundraiser
for Kids in Camp. Over five hundred current and former campers joined in a celebration of camp music and the camp
spirit. We appreciate the work of the organizers, the assistance of many volunteers and the enthusiastic participation of
hundreds of music lovers whose efforts raised $33,500 to give many more children the benefit of a summer camp
experience.
