Guelph Community Foundation donates nearly $30K to winter camp programs – Guelph

Ten local winter camp programs are receiving a donation from the Guelph Community Foundation.

A total of $28,700 is coming from the foundation’s Kids to Camp grant program.

In a news release, the money will allow over 200 local children to attend camp that they would otherwise not be able to.

The foundation says many kids would not have an opportunity to experience something that can be beneficial to their development, especially after the last few years, if the funding was not made available.

They add that cost should not be a barrier for children going to camp.
