Canoe Heads 2016
If you follow our blog, you probably understand the value of summer camp for children.
We feel the same way.
WHO? Amici is a registered charity who through fundraising events such as Canoe Heads sends boys and girls from low-income families to over 40 overnight summer camps in Ontario. Since 1966 Amici has since provided children with over 1,500 unforgettable summer experiences.
WHAT? Amici’s Canoe Heads for Kids involves over 130 participants paddling and portaging 15km over land and water. Each “Canoe Head” turns to their families and friends for donations and all proceeds support Amici campers. Also, the site of 100 canoes portaging through the downtown core helps bring awareness to the overwhelming benefits of summer camp programs and Amici.
WHY? On average, Amici spends approximately $1,000 on each camper to send them to camp. The partner camp covers the remaining cost.
#CanoeHeads2016 is extra special to us this year as we are very excited to announce that Camp Tamakwa has created a partnership with Amici. Starting this summer we will be sponsoring a few campers to join us on the shores for #Tamakwa2016.
We are thrilled to welcome Amici and the new camper families into our Tamakwa Family!!!
So for any Tamakwans interested (young and old!), if you are free on Saturday June 4th we will be taking over the Toronto waterfront!
If you are around, come and cheer our team as they embark on this epic urban outtrip!!!
Please help by sponsoring our team, sharing this blog, and if you can, show up to support Team Tamakwa!
