Amici sends children from low-income families to one of its 27 partnered OCA accredited summer camps.

Amici Campers are children and youth between the ages of 6-17. Most live in high-priority neighbourhoods in the Greater Toronto Area; frequently in areas where more than 40% of families struggle below the poverty line. Children living with financial barriers do not have equal access to recreation. 1 in 3 families cannot afford to to provide their children with sports and recreation activities outside of school. Recreation is a vital need for children and youth, especially those living in priority neighbourhoods who may be more at-risk to being mislead down a path with outcomes such dropping out of school, crime, or violence.

Camp is an incredibly fun experience, but it offers children so much more. It teaches them to become independent, improves their social skills, allows them to make new friends and succeed as a leader.

85% of Amici's operating budget goes directly to programs.

Community Benefit

Amici Camping Charity commits to funding each child year after year until they are too old or no longer need financial assistance. This fosters a lasting bond between each child and their camp. This bond instills the sense of security and self-confidence that paves the way for a stable brighter future. Many campers go on to complete Leadership Training Programs.These leadership programs provide children with the opportunity to develop the skills to become role models for future generations of campers, as well as offering them the tools that they need to be a success in their communities.
