BURSARY PROGRAM

Below are some examples of camps that we sponsor our HLBS children to attend

The HLBS Camp Program, which has been in existence since 1988, assists children from the Greater Montreal Area (Montréal, Laval, South Shore, North Shore). Its aim is to assist families of modest means by paying the camp fees on their behalf.

Day Camps

Various day camps of the Hellenic Community of Greater Montréal, keep children active throughout the summer months. https://hcgm.org/other-services/summer-camps/

Camp Edphy, in the Laurentian Mountains, offers children a chance to participate in summer sports, horseback riding, boating and much more, for a two week period.

Special Needs Camps

We also work with special needs camps (i.e. Camp Massawippi, Care, Summit, Peter Hall, Giant Steps and MAB-Mackay) to assist children and young adults of Greek origin to attend camps suited to their special needs. At the same time, it gives the parents a much needed respite from their constant, and often overwhelming, care demands.

Air Canada — Dreams Take Flights

While not a camp, the Air Canada, “Dreams Take Flight” Board provides select children with special needs the opportunity to go to Disneyland in Florida for one day. “HLBS children” have been continually selected year after year to participate in this unforgettable trip.

We would like to extend a most sincere Thank You to you – our donors and supporters – for helping us bring a smile to children’s faces.Without you, this Camp Program would not be possible.
