Back in June, Companies Who Care made a donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Durham to subsidize the costs of summer camp for some of our local children.
We have just received a wonderful update from them advising that through the Companies Who Care donation, 33 children were able to attend 6 weeks of summer camp.
Summer camp provides kids with a safe environment to learn, grow and develop their capabilities. It provides the opportunity to make new friends and to participate in fun and engaging activities. It fosters emotional intelligence (or EQ), self-confidence, independence, healthy living, environmental awareness, learning, leadership and other skills that prove beneficial long into adulthood.
Companies Who Care are thrilled that our support allowed so many children in Durham Region to experience the joy and wonder that is summer camp!
Thank you Boys and Girls Club of Durham, for all you do to foster fun and learning for the children in your programs!
