About Amici Camping Charity:

Founded in 1966, Amici Camping Charity places children from financially-challenged families with partner overnight summer camps in Ontario for 2- to 4-week stays on a multi-year basis. Children accepted into the program can progress through the summer camp experience over the course of four to five years, potentially culminating in a 4-week Leadership in Training (LIT) program at their camp.

Amici selects and maintains relationships with affiliate camps accredited by the Ontario Camps Association (currently 40 camps), selects program participants through referrals and outreach, and raises funds to cover subsidized camp fees at the affiliates. Central to Amici's program is the belief that a multi-year model, where individuals are given the opportunity to return to camp year after year, provides greater and longer-lasting benefits than one-off camping experiences. Campers are typically drawn from single parent homes with more than one child and less than $33k in annual income.

In the summer of 2015, Amici Camping Charity placed 256 campers at 35 different partner camps across Ontario. Based on total operating costs, the cost per camper was $3,580.
