Camps Of Hope

Camps of Hope provides the experience of going to camp, to those who may otherwise not get an opportunity .Camp can be an enriching experience and for some, their first chance to venture outside their neighborhoods. For others, it is an exciting opportunity for exploration and growth. Attending camp provides an opportunity to develop social skills, self-esteem, self-confidence, independence, and leadership skills. Camp can provide an escape from the ordinary – where children can learn new interests, break away from technology and make new friends. The mental health benefits of attending camp can be remarkable, creating positive, fun memories that will last a lifetime.

Strive to Thrive

Strive to Thrive programs help develop strategies, build resilience and overcome what can sometimes be a really hard life.  The Children’s Foundation funds programs designed to support and strengthen an individual’s mental health, giving children and youth access to resources that can help them thrive.

Well-Being Canada

Confronting Canada’s mental health crisis requires collective, concerted efforts and readily accessible, robust resources and services.

A focus on promotion and prevention

Starting with Canada’s youth, Well-being Canada is helping to build a healthier future generation. Our K-12 program empowers students with the essential skills and tools they need to build resilience, foster self-care habits and translate knowledge into impactful action. As we incorporate social-emotional learning and mental health literacy into the core curriculum nationwide, we break down stigma and equip our youth with formidable competencies, championing their lifelong well-being.
And watch for new resources for the family and workplace in 2024!
