President's Message

Bob Smith
Welcome to Kids in Camp, or KIC for short.  Thank you for logging onto our website.

There is no experience for a child quite like a summer camp experience.  KIC was founded in 2008 and is a charitable organization of passionate individuals dedicated to helping send as many deserving  kids as possible to Ontario Camps Association accredited camps each summer, kids who would not be able to attend camp without financial assistance from KIC.  We work in partnership with the camp and the camper’s parent(s). 

We have come a long way in a very short time.  However, we could not begin to assist so many kids, or in fact any kids at all, to enjoy all the great benefits of a summer camp experience each year without all our wonderful sponsors, fundraising partners, and donors.  We do not have an endowment fund of any kind.  We totally depend on all our many, many friends each year to raise the funds to carry out our mission and mandate.  Elsewhere on this website is a link to our 2015 Annual Report.  I would encourage you to read it.  It is really quite inspiring!

As President of KIC, I work together with eight other Board Members and one part-time paid Administrative Assistant who joined us with a strong administrative and OCA camping background.  Each Board Member is either a current or former Ontario Camps Association Owner and/or Camp Director.  We have a separate, strong and dedicated  Campership Committee which meets once a year and  reviews, considers and approves, or not, all applications.

We would very much welcome your support.
