The Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund helps to send 25,000 children to camps across Ontario, and we at Camp Big Canoe are thrilled to have been involved with such a wonderful initiative over the years! The best thing about the fund is that often kids themselves don’t know they are the recipients, and certainly no one else does. The kids get to go to camp and just be themselves and enjoy the wonder of camp life.

The 2017 Fresh Air Fund campaign kicks off this weekend, and in lieu of one story, we’ve got a bunch!

This link takes you to this year’s Toronto Star article that launches this year’s campaign, highlighting the importance of life lived outdoors and with friends!

This one takes you to a list of all the Big Canoe stories that have appeared in The Toronto Star since 2007! It’s a wonderful trip down memory lane!

As we celebrate 50 years at Hart Lake, we hope to see you on July 2nd up at camp (please RSVP to, and it would be great if you could support the Fresh Air Fund in our honour, or even support Big Canoe directly, but best of all would be to send your kids, or any kids you know, to Big Canoe. Spots are filling up fast, but we do have a number available in Session 1!
