Close your eyes for a moment and imagine a magnificent winter landscape in one of the prettiest regions of Quebec; a true postcard scene with mountains, trees covered in snow and fresh air. It's a dreamlike setting… And that is exactly what you can offer to kids from underprivileged areas who only see asphalt and concrete day after day, season after season! These youngsters can only dream of escaping the city for a few days to discover and fully appreciate winter's pleasures as most fortunate children do.
Your donation can change the life of a child in need. On behalf of all the children, thank you!
The Snow Camp represents an opportunity for underprivileged children to make new friends, breathe fresh air and gather precious memories in their hearts. During the camp, we take the opportunity to give the children winter clothing such as boots, scarves, hats, mittens and a sleeping bag to keep them warm all winter long. All these items will be given to them during their stay and they will also receive shampoo, toothbrushes, soap, books, games and loads more from our generous and loyal sponsors.
This winter camp is a fun and educational way for youngsters to experience what privileged children live on a regular basis. For three days, more than 80 children will experience nature and activities that are sure to replete their need for adventure and fresh air. Our youngsters, aged between 10 and 12, will have a memorable time and will be lodged in an extraordinary rural setting with beautiful facilities and numerous equipment. They will also receive three hot meals and three snacks daily. Their stay will be punctuated with fun activities that many will experience for the first time such as tubing, skating, sledding, broom ball, making snow castles, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, camp fires on the snow, winter camping, hiking and identifying animal tracks.
Without your help, Children Now would never be able to offer such a wonderful activity to a group of underprivileged children. The Snow Camp allows them to enjoy the pleasures of winter and to live unforgettable moments which they never would have otherwise experienced. Your contribution is essential in order for us to carry on this marvelous tradition.
On behalf of Children Now, I personally wish to sincerely thank you for your generosity towards these children. More than ever, they need our help to be guided towards a better future. Because of our collective effort to help them, they will henceforth have magical childhood memories. For those children, this stay in an outdoor centre is an unexpected gift. Thank you so very much!
