kids in camp

KICis a registered charity that assists families in need by providing their kids with a summer experience at an Ontario Camps Association accredited day or overnight camp. Over 2,150 children have been assisted to date.

This is the sixth “Pass The Music On” (PTMO) event to support KIC. The first occurred in March, 2013 and featured our guest performer Steven Page of Barenaked Ladies fame. PTMO has generated donations over $170,000 to Kids In Camp to date.

The 2018 version of PTMO is being supported by 11 partner/sponsor camps. All the partner camps had been engaged in fund raising activities in their settings this past summer, in addition to organizing their camp wide talent shows. The finalists of those summer talent shows will be performing on November 25th, at the Glenn Gould Studio. One of these camper acts will be awarded the PTMO trophy at the conclusion of our show.
