Join Taylor Statten Camping Bursary Fund free public skate Sunday December 2nd at 3pm.

Please join us for a free Public skate December 2nd. @ 3 PM

The event is a chance to raise awareness for the Taylor Statten Camping Bursary Fund.

The Taylor Statten Camping Bursary Fund was established in 1972 in honour of Taylor Statten I, a leading figure in North American camping and youth education who believed that summer camp can play a critical role in a child’s early life and development. Camp can build self-confidence, encourage teamwork, leadership, and an appreciation of nature, and is also just plain fun!  It is in this spirit that we eagerly look to share these experiences by helping bridge the gap between camp fees and what families can afford.

The Fund provides financial assistance that can be put towards any camp that is an accredited member of the Ontario Camping Association or the Canadian Camping Association and is willing to contribute to the Fund by offering a satisfactory fee reduction. In addition to demonstrated financial need, the Fund seeks potential campers who are at least 11 years old and have shown leadership qualities. Once accepted for sponsorship, the Fund will provide annual financial assistance to the camper for as many years as required.
