What are we fundraising for?
The Kelli Mitchell Fund was established in 1997 in memory of a special little girl who had a love for the outdoors and helping other children. Kelli had been a regular participant in the Summer Camp Program at BGC Kawarthas. The Mitchell family wanted to ensure all kids have the opportunity to participate in summer camp. Attending camp with all of its challenges, experiences and skill based learning has a positive impact on children’s development. Children who attend camp develop social skills, grow emotionally, become more self-confident, gain physical skills and learn more about their environment. Children make friendships that can turn into lasting relationships. They can develop leadership skills and learn to work together as a group. They have an opportunity to try new things that they would not access at school. With the support of generous donors and now the proceeds of the Dream Ball, the Club can guarantee that no child will ever be denied access to summer camp due to financial difficulties.
