Wednesday, June 3 is Tim Hortons Camp Day! Camp Day is the one day each year when every penny from coffee sales at Tim Hortons stores across Canada and the United States will be donated to the Tim Horton Children's Foundation.
On Camp Day, customers can buy a coffee and help send more than 14,000 kids on the camping adventure of a lifetime. Campers aged nine to 12 years attend a 10 day summer camp session, or a seven day winter camp session at one of the Foundation's six camps. All children who attend camp are selected by Tim Hortons store owners who work closely with local youth organizations and schools to identify kids who would most benefit from an experience at camp.
During their stay at camp, kids participate in a wide range of first-class programs and activities designed to build self-confidence, self esteem and leadership skills. The Foundation is committed to providing an enriched and memorable experience for campers, giving them confidence in their abilities, pride in their accomplishments and a more positive view of the world and their place in it.
The Tim Horton Children's Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization founded in 1974. Funding for the Foundation comes from Camp Day, fundraising activities, special events, year-round public donations collected through counter and drive-thru coin boxes and other donations.
Since 1975 more than 120,000 children have attended a Foundation camp at no cost to them or their families. For more information about The Tim Horton Children's Foundation please visit www.timhortonchildrensfoundation.com.
