Community partners help send kids to camp

Community partners help send kids to camp
by Maritime

This summer over four-hundred children from the Maritimes will make their way to Scotian Glen Summer Camp in Thorburn, Nova Scotia for a week of fun in the sun.

Scotian Glen Summer Camp serves as a safe and caring environment where children from families in need can indulge in sports, arts and other activities that may be otherwise inaccessible.

The Salvation Army is grateful to our many community partners who come alongside to make Scotian Glen a memorable experience for children age 7 to 12.

·Through the generous support of the New Brunswick Children’s Foundation, 30 children will be heading to camp. Directors Art Buck and Jennifer Machum were on hand to present a cheque to The Salvation Army Moncton Community and Family Services; and Director Janet Miller was on hand to present a cheque to the Saint Community and Family Services office.

· Armour Transport graciously made a donation that will send children in need to Scotian Glen. Many of the children attending camp come from families that may not have the resources to experience a week of outdoor activities such as canoeing, hiking, or swimming. Coming to camp allows children to meet new people, develop rich friendships, and nurture their self-esteem.

· The Windsor Foundation provided a thoughtful contribution that will help ensure the safety of children and counsellors at the camp. This donation secured the purchase, transport, and set up of a container to house utility and water-safety equipment.

Thank you to the many donors who are helping to shape an exciting summer ahead for our campers!
