The Summer Camp Experience

Every year, The Kidney Foundation of Canada provides funding for patients to access summer camp programs across the country. This opportunity gives adults and youth affected by kidney disease or living with a transplant the chance to have new adventures and make new friends in an environment that also provides them with essential medical services.

Thanks to the support of generous funders and partners, campers can experience a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities and sports, from waterskiing to land-based activities like zip lining, horseback riding, archery and crafts.

Visit our Summer Camps page to see how your donations make a difference.

Hope for Harrison

“It’s the hidden disease. You’d never know. He’s the healthiest looking kid I’ve ever seen.” says Jarrett.
