Event description

Description

The city of Oshawa has donated the use 16 parks to their opportunity to run free sports camps throughout Oshawa. The camps run for 8 weeks on a drop in basis starting in June. They are located throughout the city in key neighborhoods where families may not have the resources to send their kids to camps/daycare throughout the summer. The location of the parks is key as many do not have access to transportation and it builds a deeper sense of community around the park. Each week there is programing put on by volunteers and organizations teaching children and giving them exposure to a variety of sports, like baseball, cricket, soccer etc. In week 4 and week 8 the camps have a give back campaign where the attendees will do something for the community or park the park is located in. At the end of the summer there is a closing ceremony put on in partnership with the city. The camps support approximately 8000 kids in Oshawa Our Goal: Their Opportunity is looking for $30,000 for this program. The funding will be used as follows $20,000 used to equip the parks and help pay staff and $10,000 to provide a “sports scholarship” to a child from each park
