CHILDREN OF CAMP KIRK
Lions Clubs Camp Kirk Foundation opened for campers in 1993 with 32 campers attending. In 2016 we were at full capacity of 144 campers and a waiting list. We have come a long way.
The cost involved in sending a child to Camp Kirk for two weeks is over $3,000.00, of which the parents are asked to pay 50%.
In 1994 the Lioness District President Mary Peters initiated this fund as her annual project raising $47,000.00. Since then other Lioness District Presidents and Governors have also raised funds for this project. We also receive generous donations from our A-16 Lion and Lioness Clubs and individuals.
This fund is to supplement the cost of camp that some parents cannot afford. Since 1995, the fund has paid an average of $6-8,000 annually, with over $130,000 donated to assist with the cost for deserving children to attend.
We appreciate any and all contributions for “The Children of Camp Kirk”. Please make cheques payable to LCCKF, and on the memo line state “the Children of Camp Kirk”.
All donations are gratefully appreciated and tax receipts are issued.
