To End Youth Homelessness
Campout to End Youth Homelessness is an annual event held in Kamloops, BC,
hosted by A Way Home Kamloops Society.
The event was held virtually on December 10th, 2021. This annual fundraiser helps shine a light on youth homelessness in Kamloops. Community members spent a December night outside in cardboard boxes in honour of youth who are without a home. Campers were encouraged to raise pledges and donations that fund crucial programs that support homeless youth. City Council issued a Proclamation in honour of this event and many high profile Kamloopsians camp out in solidarity with homeless youth.
Every cent raised directly benefits youth at risk of, or experiencing homelessness. Our programs provide youth with housing, education, life skills, and employment training. These programs are designed to encourage youth to become contributing members of our community. Last year, 66 youth in our care found housing or received a rental subsidy thanks to the support of campers like you!
Together, we stand rooted in action to end youth homelessness!
In loving memory of Katherine McParland
We acknowledge the land in which A Way Home Kamloops Society
is located in the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc territory that is situated in the southern interior of British Columbia within the unceded traditional lands of the Secwépemc Nation; without their presence and dedication to mother earth we would not be here.
