OAKVILLE, ON, May 31, 2011 /CNW/ - Wednesday, June 1 is Tim Hortons Camp Day! Camp Day is the one day each year when every penny from coffee sales at Tim Hortons Restaurants is donated to the Tim Horton Children's Foundation. On Camp Day, when guests buy a coffee and participate in various fundraising activities, they will help send more than 14,000 kids on the camping adventure of a lifetime. Campers aged nine to 12 years attend a 10-day summer camp session or a seven-day winter camp session, at one of the Foundation's six camps in Canada and the United States. Children are selected by Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners who work closely with local youth organizations and schools to identify kids who would most benefit from an experience at camp. "It's overwhelming each year, to see how Tim Hortons customers come together to support the Foundation," says Bill Moir, President, Tim Horton Children's Foundation. "On Camp Day, buying a cup of coffee and participating in the many activities helps give deserving kids, who live in your community, an experience to remember and inspire them for years to come. And that's a good feeling." During their time at camp, kids participate in a wide range of first-class programs and activities designed to build self-esteem and leadership skills. The Foundation is committed to providing an enriched and memorable experience for campers, giving them confidence in their abilities, pride in their accomplishments and a more positive view of the world and their place in it.
