"Together we can change the world, one good deed at a time."
NEW for Summer 2018!
Our Pay-It-Forward Program is an exciting opportunity for campers to make a positive difference in the local community, generously supported by the Libro Prosperity Fund.
Inspired by the generosity of our community and the 'Random Acts of Kindness' movement, this program allows us to 'Pay It Forward' and give back to Goderich in a way that provides campers with unique, fun, skill building opportunities, and orientation to the local businessess and community organizations around Goderich at no additional cost.
For 2018, the Pay-It-Forward Program will be offered to campers in two ways -
As a 'Pay-It-Forward All Camp Week', and a 'Pay-It-Forward Specialty Option'.
During our Teen Week and Specialty Week 2, all overnight campers will spend at least part of one day participating in a Pay-It-Forward activity. There is no need to declare your interest in particpating, all campers who attend these weeks will have the opportunity!
Pay-It-Forward Specialty Option:
All Ages Week(August 12-17, 2018)
Campers who declare their interest in the Pay-It-Forward specialty program upon registration will have the opportunity to particpate in multiple Pay-It-Forward activities throughout their week at no additional cost.
What Will a Pay-It-Forward Activity Look Like?
Throughout the Spring, our Community Outreach Program Coordinator will be setting up Pay-It-Forward activities and visits with local business and community organizations for the campers in the summer. Campers can expect to travel into Goderich accompanied by trained camp staff to a local business or community organization to learn a bit about it, and lend a hand for an afternoon participating in making the community a better place in a way that won't be in the way for normal business operations. Examples might include: visiting retirment homes, socializing animals, cleaning up the beach, helping decorate food at a bakery or restaurant, helping at the library or community centres, decorating the town... Whatever the activity is, we will make sure that all activities are fun, helpful, and provide a window into the value of helping others.
Are You a Huron County Business or Community Organization?
We encourage you to get in touch with us to see how you can be involved!
Being involved in our program is a great way to expose your organization to local campers (ages 7-15), and camp leaders (ages 16-30), at no cost, allowing you to show off a bit of the behind the scenes that goes into running your organization, and inspiring kids to learn more - all carefully planned jointly between your organization and our Community Outreach Program Coordinator to ensure that a positive experience is had by all, and that our campers only help and improve upon the good work you do.
The goal of this program is to make the community a better place, we would be thrilled if you wanted to join the Pay-It-Forward movement and help us spread good-will throughout Goderich in a way consistent with your organizations strengths, with the help of a group of happy campers.
