In 2018, 136 youth in Kamloops identified they had experienced homelessness. Help us give these kids a home by registering to camp out and raising pledges through your network.
Camp Out to End Youth Homelessness
is our annual fundraiser where the community mobilizes to help provide safe housing to youth!
The Camp Out will give community members a sample of what life on the streets can be like outside in the cold, with only the clothes on your back, a blanket, and cardboard boxes. Campers at this event will be provided hot meals, a warm fire, hot coco, entertainment, and access to heated indoors - more than what a homeless youth may have. This event builds a sense of community around youth homelessness and the conversations that are had will change your lives forever.
All funds raised will go directly to providing kids a home through A Way Home Kamloops' community Wrapforce Youth Housing First program. Please help us reach our $50,000 goal by camping out, raising pledges, or becoming a corporate sponsor, so youth in our community have a way home!
