Camper Subsidy

Camp Yowochas has established the Camper Subsidy Fund to assist families who may not otherwise be able to afford the full fees to send their children to summer camp. In 2017, Camp Yowochas proudly supported 53 campers in attending summer camp through the generous efforts of our supporters.

Subsidies are made possible by generous support of the TELUS Edmonton Community Board and donors like you. Please consider donating to our Camper Subsidy Program during the registration process, or contact our office for more information.

I’m a single mom who has a young boy who has attended YoWoChAs Summer Camp for 2 years now and we’re hoping to get approved for another year of subsidy. This program is so important to us. Being a mom, I know my son needs male interaction and social skills, which he gains at YoWoChAs. Without subsidy I would not be able to do this on my own! This Camp means EVERYTHING to my son and he looks forward to it every year. Each year I see more growth in my son, he’s becoming a person with Independence, team building skills and overall peace in his eyes, and as his mom this means the world to me.

 

Dear camp YoWoChAs, camping for my granddaughter has made her more social with others and she’s benefited from safe play and bonding. She loves the camp counsellors and talks about her experience year round, she is so excited about every summer, just knowing that camp is a part of the summer break. For myself as a single grandparent raising her, this is an important part of allowing her the time for a break from routine. Without the camper subsidy program this would not be possible, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so very much!
