Camp Gift Giving: Giving the Gift of a Hopeful Experience

We often have parents and families asking how they can donate directly to the Kinark Outdoor Center. Donations that are made to the Kinark Foundation can be directed to the KOC in two simple steps. First, fill out the Donating to the Kinark Outdoor Center form at the top of this page. Second, once you are back on this page, click on the Kinark Foundation button which will bring you to their secure online donations portal.

As part of your donation you will get to choose how your donation gets applied at the camp. We've created 4 categories of gifts. These gifts represent aspects of any given experience at the Kinark Outdoor Center. Donations into any one of these categories will help us to enhance already excellent programs, provide more programming, and support more vulnerable and complex family needs.

Again, your gift purchases are tax deductible and charitable receipts will be issued.

Autism Programs - Donations into this stream will increase our capacity to serve more campers with ASD and their families. Donations might provide additional care for a camper if needed, transport for a family, or respite.
