On April 30, 2020, following the advice of health and government authorities, as well as Camp Awakening’s own volunteer Medical Advisors, the Board of Directors shared their difficult decision to suspend all on-site and in-person Camp Awakening programs for summer 2020 as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic. We feel confident that this is in the best interests of our entire community, but like you, we are incredibly sad and disappointed.
However, we are excited to announce Camp Awakening @ Home! This alternative program is a combination of virtual YLD leadership sessions and camp-in-a-box care packages. This 6-week online program is FREE and runs weekdays from Monday, July 6 - Friday, August 14, 2020.
Camp Awakening is a registered charity and receives no government funding. We operate on a shared-cost basis meaning our camp fees are already subsidized by our generous community of donors.
Camp Awakening's fees are all-inclusive. There are no hidden or additional charges for accommodation, meals, staff supervision, activities & programming, accessible transportation between Toronto-Camp, or the at-camp Tuck Shop (convenience store).
Unfortunately, there are limited funding options available to campers and participants over the age of 18.
However, Camp Awakening will support you in your efforts to secure any funding you find or create a payment/installment plan for you.
