S’mores and scary tales by the open fire, strangers turning into friends, and lots of laughter and fun activities turning our children into confident, lifelong future leaders!
On Wednesday, June 3rd 2015, your daily Tims Double Double will have added benefits!
It’s Tim Hortons annual Camp Day and one hundred per cent of coffee sales will be donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation (THCF) helping to send 18,000 kids from low-income homes on a life-changing camp experience.
This year, Tim Hortons guests can also round up their purchase to the nearest after-tax dollar to help ensure that even more kids can benefit from this enriching camp experience.
Tim Hortons Camp Day gives children from economically disadvantaged homes an enriching opportunity that helps build lifelong skills. THCF Camps are specifically designed to help kids develop the skills and confidence needed to build a brighter future for themselves. Plus attending a THCF Camp comes at absolutely no cost to kids and their families.
With the help of funds raised on Camp Day, Tim Hortons restaurant owners sponsor kids directly from their community to attend camp and work closely with local youth organizations and schools to identify children who would benefit most from the experience. For many children, camp is the first time they have ever travelled outside of their community. While at camp, kids participate in a wide range of top-tier programs and activities designed to build self-confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills. Children who attend camp often return home with a more positive outlook and greater confidence about their future.
How amazing is that?
I remember some of my fondest memories in childhood, including building much-needed interpersonal, communication and leadership skills, were courtesy of summer camp. Let’s not forget the friendships and bonds that blossomed – I still chat with some old camp friends to this day! It’s an irreplaceable experience that I think every child should experience at some point in their lives.
So make sure to pop by your local Tim Hortons for Camp Day on June 3rd to support your community and help send a kid to camp!
