Camps For Kids Grants

The “Camp For Kids” grants were established by the BC Federation of Foster Parent Associations to alleviate some of the costs Foster Parent members encounter when sending their foster, adopted, or birth children to camp. There will be a maximum number of 20 grants issued per year.

Who Can Apply

Any BCFFPA foster parent member in good standing who requires assistance to send their foster, adopted or birth child/youth between the ages of 6–19 to camp (ie. day camps, sports camps, away camps).

Amount of Grant

An annual grant of $250.00 per family will be awarded, and may be used to cover costs for one or more eligible family members to attend the camp of their choice.

Application Dates:

Applications will be accepted from February 1 – May 31 of each year.  Awards will be made in June. The foster parent member must provide proof of payment of the camp deposit, along with all other relevant documentation, prior to the awarding of the grant.

How to apply:

The foster parent member must complete the Application for Camp Funds Form outlining the name, type of camp, and proposed dates of attendance for each participant in the family, and the full cost for each child/youth to attend. Grants will be awarded to 20 applicants chosen at random who have applied with all relevant documentation.
