The non-profit organization Pro-Active Education for All Children’s Enrichment (PEACE), is partnering with the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre to create a summer day camp for Overbrook’s underprivileged children.
The camp will run eight weeks during summer break and will offer exciting, engaging, and educational programming. Although the camp will be located in Overbrook, children from all areas of the city will be welcome to register.
Camp fees will be charged according to family income using the city of Ottawa’s online childcare subsidy calculator. Any family on Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program, as well as any refugees in their first 12 months in Canada, will be registered for free.
Running such an exciting and dynamic camp comes at a cost. In order for this camp to be a success, over $7,000 must still be raised to cover costs of employing sufficiently qualified staff, purchasing materials, providing transportation and for paying admission fees for field trips.
The first fundraising event will be a Garage Sale and BBQ. It will be held at the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre at 225 Donald St. on Saturday, June 18 th from 9am-3pm.
PEACE is hoping for your support. The organization needs items to sell at the garage sale. Please consider donating old items you no longer use or want. Also consider purchasing items and food at the Garage Sale and BBQ!
