Children who attend one of the Foundation’s six camps are selected from within the communities where Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurants are located. Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurant owners work closely with local youth organizations and schools to the identify children who would benefit most from the experience. Often, this camp experience is the first time a child has travelled outside their community. During their stay at a THCF camp, kids participate in a wide range of first-class programs and activities designed to build self-confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills. The first Tim Horton Children’s Foundation camp opened in Parry Sound, ON in 1975 with just 200 kids. Today, the Foundation operates six year-round camps across North America and serving more than 17,000 low-income children. Campers have the opportunity to attend one of three programs, including a Winter and Summer Camp Program (ages 9-12), a Year Round Group Program serving schools and youth groups (ages 8-18) in the fall, winter and spring, and a five-level Youth Leadership Program focused on building lifelong leadership skills (ages 13-17).
