kids in camp

Kids in Camp is a registered charitable organization that assists needy families in providing their kids with a summer experience at an Ontario Camping Association accredited camp. Over 1200 Kids have been assisted to date.

This is the fourth “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 $100,000 to Kids In Camp to date.

The 2016 version of PTMO has been supported by 9 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 27th, at the Glenn Gould Studio. One of these camper acts will be awarded the PTMO trophy at the conclusion of our show.
