About Tim Horton Children's Foundation:
Founded in 1974, Tim Horton Children’s Foundation runs 7 camps in Canada and the United States that host teens from low-income families. The camp programs help teens develop positive skills and attitudes to prepare them for adulthood. Two types of camp programs are offered: Youth Leadership hosts teens during the summer, and Community Group runs during the rest of the year for school groups. Both programs are free for students.
In 2017, Tim Horton Children’s Foundation provided camp experiences for more than 20,000 teens from across Canada and northern US. Teens attend Tim Horton camps more than once, with the time between visits intended as a chance to implement the skills learned at camp. Teens in the Youth Leadership program attend camp for 10 days per summer for 5 years. The Community Group program hosts participants twice for 4-day, overnight stays.
