Since 1969, members of Camping In Ontario have volunteered their time and provided resources annually to support March of Dimes Canada’s Outdoor Recreation ProgramsNow campgrounds, resorts, RV dealers and many others from across Canada raise funds through a variety of activities and programs to subsidize the costs associated with supporting children and adults who live with a disability, so they can enjoy a summer camping experience. Costs covered include: specialized transportation to and from camp, meals, Attendant Care, accessible accommodations, supplies and day trips.

Rave Reviews

"We started our support of CHC as a great chance to socialize and get involved with our park community.  It has unexpectedly developed into many new and long lasting friendships.  The real meaning of our yard sales, raffle draws, kids day, boat poker run and other events hit home when our efforts sent one of our own campers to an adult camp.  We give nothing but our time and the rewards are enormous, personally, for our park community and the people we are helping."

Lynn and Scott – Sandy Beach Resort

"Appreciate how the quilting retreat; for me learning something new, fun and exciting, translates into helping others have opportunities to participate and experience the friendship of camping.  These are opportunities that build friendships to last a lifetime."
