Camp N.O.W

No Opportunity Wasted

We believe in creating safe and fun spaces where youth can find community and belonging. Our favourite way to do this is through our summer camp.

Youth get to come along, make new friends, have loads of fun playing EPIC games and make summer memories that will last a lifetime.

Historically we have found that 70% of our youth are unable to come to camp because of financial pressure at home. This is why we turn to sponsors such as you to provide the opportunity to a young person who desperately needs experiences like what they have at camp.

It costs $136 to send a youth on camp.
