ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM CAMP KEE-MO-KEE

A ten part series of Notes from Camp

September 17 Record Attendance
This camp season was a huge success! We had 95% occupancy with 707 campers. Thank you to all of you who helped to send a camper through ELUCO or London Community Chaplaincy. We had 36 campers sponsored to attend.
September 24 A response to the 94 Calls to Action
Our First Nations Heritage Week saw 45 First Nations youth attend camp at no charge, sponsored by Sifton Family Foundation. Funded by The Peace and Justice Fund and The Brian and Belva Piercy Fund at The United Church of Canada Foundation, ten First Nations leaders came out to offer cultural programming such as lacrosse, drum making, dance, dream catcher making, drumming and story telling.
October 1 More opportunities to engage in Nature.
This was our third year offering a PA day program in June. Record attendance of 88 included 25 First Nations youth sponsored by The Peace and Justice Fund and The Brian and Belva Piercy Fund a The Untied Church of Canada Foundation.
October 8 An Inclusive Camp Environment <
Reach for the Rainbow is a non-profit organization that has pioneered the integration of children and youth with disabilities into the mainstream of society. Their program provides an environment of inclusion for youth while offering much needed respite for parents. Campers are paired with a dedicated counsellor for 1:1 support. This year 13 youth attended camp through this program.
October 15 Helping schools provide nature programming
In May and June, the camp offers a school field trip program. In 2017, 1,432 elementary students attended from 25 different schools. Research shows connections with nature improves our health, happiness and wellbeing. These connections are predictive of our attitudes and the choices we make about living sustainable lifestyles. This year we are partnering with Western's Biology department to develop curriculum based programming. Visit our website to read further research on the benefits of camp.
