Specific Areas to Get Involved in through Donating*
First Nations Programs
We are excited to be able to work with First Nations communities and have been running two weeks of summer camp specifically for First Nations youth. The entire cost of these camps is covered by generous donors like you. That makes it possible for those First Nations youth to be able to experience the joy and excitement of summer camp each year! Many of these youth keep coming back each year and when they age out, they lose that connection. With that in mind we are starting a First Nations weekend retreat this coming spring. Your donations to our First Nations Programs will help cover costs and make it possible for many to have positive life-changing experiences here at Frontier.
The Building Fund
Currently the capital project we are fundraising for is a new housing for the Directors of the Explore program. The upstairs of this house is creatively laid out with three separate spaces that can be combined at different times to meet our changing needs throughout the year. After the upstairs is complete, the basement will be finished to become a three bedroom family suite for our growing staff team. Any donation noted as "building fund" or "directors housing" will be designated to that fund.
Summer Camper Scholarship
We strive to keep our costs as abolutely low as possible to make summer camp affordable to everyone. However, at times there are familes who cannot afford to come to camp, but we want them here! This Summer Camp Scholarship has been set up to give those families an opportunity. It costs $395 to come to camp for the week and you can make a difference someones in someones life by donating to this scholarship fund.
