Fundraising For Camp: Do it yourself

Some quick ideas to make paying for camp just a bit easier

Do it yourself fundraising is an easy way to raise a few dollars or even a few hundred dollars to help pay for camp. Consider the following:


  • Encourage children to do odd jobs in your neighbourhood, such as shovelling snow or mowing lawns.
  • There’s no better excuse to clean out that basement, attic or old toy box than a yard sale.
  • For a twist on the lemonade stand, sell hot apple cider in winter.
  • A backyard carnival offers a plethora of opportunities. A ring-toss game, bobbing for apples, a peel-and-stick tattoo parlour, hole-in-one mini-golf. Your imagination is the limit.
  • Stage a play and charge admission. Sell popcorn and drinks.
  • Organize a backyard art show and sell paintings or crafts.
  • Capitalize on those music lessons. There’s nothing better than a concert under the stars.
  • We offer the Our Kids Children's Fund to help families in need.
