Proceeds from this event will go towards the Foundation's mission of providing a fulfilling Canadian summer camp experience to those who need it most. Over 550 youth have already experienced the camp program, gaining self-esteem, leadership skills, and renewing their respect for life and nature.

About the General Roméo Dallaire Foundation
Dedicated to the memory of Rwanda's genocide victims and war affected children throughout the world, the General Roméo Dallaire Foundation is a charitable organization designed to allow underprivileged, immigrant or refugee youths to enjoy the enriching experience of attending summer camp in the Laurentian Mountains. Campers gain a sense of optimism and self-esteem and learn to respect life and nature. The goal is to awaken the leadership potential and social awareness of these children.
Donations make it possible for the children to take part in outdoor activities while they learn the fundamental values of responsible citizenship. Every year, as the Foundation grows in size, more summertime activities are planned. With your support, we will keep on reaching our goals.
