About Tims CampsWho we are and how we make a difference.
We foster the strengths within youth to achieve their full potential and empower them to pursue a life without limits.
Tim Hortons Foundation Camps is a non-profit, leadership development organization that supports kids from disadvantaged circumstances between the ages of 12 to 16. Through a multi-year, camp-based program, they learn skills like leadership, resilience, and responsibility, empowering them to change their stories for the better and ultimately break the cycle of poverty.
With seven camps across North America that run year-round Summer and School Programs, Tim Hortons Foundation Camps invests in youth from every Tim Hortons community, and is entirely funded by restaurant owners, guests, and sponsors through Tim Hortons Camp Day, fundraising events, and year-round donations collected through restaurant coin boxes.
Over the past 45 years, more than 295,000 kids have attended a Tims Camp at no cost to them or their families.
What We Do
Multi-day, overnight camp experiences are uniquely powerful in quickly building critical skills and strengths in youth. Strengthening social ties and community connections can protect and help young people cope with challenging circumstances.
Whether at camp or back home in their communities between visits – our youth work to build social, emotional, leadership and innovation skills and behaviours like volunteerism and motivation to learn so they become civically and academically engaged, and successfully transition to adulthood.
