CAMP KINDLE HAS THE VISION TO CREATE A MAGICAL CAMP EXPERIENCE FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES
Designed for kids affected by cancer, Camp Kindle meets the needs of the whole family at each stage of a cancer journey—from diagnosis to treatment. The camp’s staff and volunteers are fully qualified and trained to meet the unique needs of young people affected by cancer.
The Calgary Flames Foundation made a $1 million commitment to help build the Kids Cancer Care Foundations’ Camp Kindle. The Flames Foundation continues to raise funds to fulfill this commitment.
A LONG-STANDING PARTNERSHIP BENEFITING THOSE MOST PRECIOUS
For more than 30 years, the Calgary Flames and Flames Foundation have embraced the Alberta Children’s Hospital and the children and families who rely on its care. Special events include the annual Townsend Tigers hockey game and personal patient visits by Calgary Flames players, as well as donations and volunteer support.
In addition to walking alongside families in the final days of an end-of-life journey, Rotary/Flames House provides much needed respite care. This temporary round the clock care of children gives families the rest and renewal they need. Last year, more than 1,960 nights of care were given at the Rotary Flames House along with 266 days of programming for families and kids who needed it. Families whose children have a life-limiting illness understand how important this care really is.
Through this initiative every grade 6 student in Calgary can access any YMCA in Calgary for free, thanks to the Flames Foundation.
