Donate to our Sponsorship Fund:
Donate to our sponsorship fund to give other children and families the gift of camp next summer. Though we helped 150 people stretch their resources to come to JOY last summer, our sponsorship needs were underfunded by $7000. We'd love to see that fully funded, so that we never have to turn someone away from a week at camp.

Donate to our Sponsorship Fund in Honour of someone on your list:
Donate to our sponsorship fund in honour of someone on your gift list, in lieu of a gift that can sit on a shelf! Go to Canada Helps and include your instructions so that we can send a gift card, either to you or to the honouree.
