Scripture Union Canada is a non-profit organization that strives to connect people with Jesus and His Story. One of our favourite ways to do this is through sports — and sports camps in particular! Every summer, we facilitate a number of sports camps across southern Ontario, and we've been doing so for about a decade now. However, early on, we noticed an unfortunate trend inherent to most sports camps: we realized that some children could not attend due to different ability levels. Determined to include everyone, we created the Every Kid Camp™ program: a program specially designed by a registered occupational therapist to include children with all levels of abilities. It is our goal to incorporate Every Kid Camp™ programming into as many of our camps as possible, thus ensuring that no child needs to be turned away from camp because of lack of supportive facilities or programming.
We invite you to join the SU Canada team this year at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, as we raise funds and awareness for our Every Kid Camp™ program. Whether you walk a lot, run a little, or want to show support through a donation, we want you to be on our team! Family and friends are also welcome. Every penny raised will go to our Every Kid Camp™ program, which will enable siblings to attend camp together — those with disabilities and those without. Because every kid deserves the camp experience and Every Kid Camp™ makes that happen!
