Camper Subsidy

Camp Yowochas has established the Campership Subsidy Fund, a financial assistance program aimed at supporting families who may face challenges affording the full fees for their children to attend summer camp at Camp Yowochas. 

Subsidies are made possible by generous support of community supporters like you. Please consider donating to our Campership Subsidy Program during the registration process, or contact our office for more information.


To apply for a 2024 Campership Subsidy, please ensure your campers are registered and the $50 deposit is paid before submitting the subsidy application. If the deposit presents a difficulty, don’t hesitate to contact us at

To maximize the impact of this subsidy fund, assistance is limited to one camp session per child in 2024

After submitting your application, our team will review it, and you will be notified of the eligible subsidy amount. The process may take 3-5 weeks to complete, so please apply early to ensure your timely access to the subsidy for a wonderful camp experience for your youth.


“I’m a single mom who has a young boy who has attended YoWoChAs Summer Camp for 2 years now and we’re hoping to get approved for another year of subsidy. This program is so important to us. Being a mom, I know my son needs male interaction and social skills, which he gains at YoWoChAs. Without subsidy I would not be able to do this on my own! This Camp means EVERYTHING to my son and he looks forward to it every year. Each year I see more growth in my son, he’s becoming a person with Independence, team building skills and overall peace in his eyes, and as his mom this means the world to me.”

“Dear Camp YoWoChAs, camping for my granddaughter has made her more social with others and she’s benefited from safe play and bonding. She loves the camp counsellors and talks about her experience year round, she is so excited about every summer, just knowing that camp is a part of the summer break. For myself as a single grandparent raising her, this is an important part of allowing her the time for a break from routine. Without the camper subsidy program this would not be possible, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so very much!”
