“Part of this [event funding] will continue the programming that we offer right now, and it will also be put in reserve for the programming that we will offer at Katherine’s Place, which we plan to fully inform young people – whether they are in our accommodation now, on our list of ‘waiting, or are just in the community at large.
This year’s event will take place online, with a memorial for McParland and a variety of virtual games for attendees. Youth Projects Coordinator Daniel Galbraith said the commemorative portion of the program will be open to the public to pay tribute to him.
With early support from Enbridge Fueling Futures, Teck Highland Valley Copper and title sponsor Skemtsin Environmental Inc, the campaign has raised $ 78,000 so far with the camp‘s final goal set at $ 250,000 .
Galbraith says they have decided to go big with their campaign goal and hope to get another boost in entries by Friday (December 10).
âDonations don’t just stop on camp night, donations increase until February, I believe, so you can continue to donate even if you haven’t camped or registered, and then you’re golden. . ”
