Your donations make a difference in the lives of our youth! Whether it is money or camping equipment, it all makes an impact.

Every young person deserves the opportunity to attend summer camp, regardless of their circumstances. This is why Metro Vancouver Regional Parks Foundation partners with CTS Youth Society to deliver camping programs in four regional parks that are completely free for every participant.

This year, CTS Youth made a video celebrating what they learned and thanking supporters like you for helping make this year their best. summer. ever. With your support, we can make 2022 even better.
