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!

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.
