Mental illness affects all of us one way or another. You may know someone who is suffering or you may be suffering yourself, but we are all impacted and we can all benefit from supportive community services for those in need.
We are a group of mental health professionals from the West Island of Montreal and we want to help members of our community who suffer from mental illness by offering them a chance to escape their daily lives and experience nature during a 4-day stay at Camp Kinkora. Many of us would take this for granted, but for them, it is their only vacation. Our wish is for many to experience camp, to be in nature, to meet people and have fun.
100% of all donations will be used directly to help cover camp costs, materials for special activities and basic necessities like sleeping bags, flip flops, and bathing suits. Your donations will make a difference & we can’t thank you enough for taking the time to read, share & donate.
