Kids 2 Camp - Gran FONDO

Gran FONDO Fundraiser Saturday, June 1st, 2024!

You're invited to partner with friends of camp who are raising funds for our Camper Sponsorship Fund to help send Kids 2 Camp!

Friends of Homewood are planning to ride the 280 kilometer route from Victoria, BC to Camp Homewood on Quadra Island in one day. (Yes! ONE DAY!).  Last year, thanks to the generosity of people like you, we exceeded our goal of raising $30,000!  This meant that 56 children were able to attend camp in 2023 who otherwise wouldn't have been able to.  That's amazing!

This year's fundraising ride has a dual purpose: to raise funds to help underprivileged kids experience a life-changing week at Camp Homewood and to provide bursary funds to assist some of our volunteer leaders to pay for tuition this fall.  We all know that providing an exceptional camp experience for children depends on attracting a hard working, caring group of volunteers!

What Is A GRAN FONDO?  "Gran Fondo" may not be a term most people are familiar with. "Gran Fondo" is roughly translated from Italian into English as “big ride”. There’s some cycling tradition behind its use. World-class cycling enthusiasts may be more particular about what qualifies as Gran Fondo distance (at least 120 km) , however, elsewhere folks are less precise. Regardless, the 280 km ride from Victoria, BC to Quadra Island. BC would meet anybody's distance requirement for a big ride!

Ways To Get involved:

1) Join our Kids 2 Camp fundraiser by donating online to one of the team members from "Team Goforth" through Canada Helps.

2) Follow our Kids 2 Camp Instagram account for updates closer to the big ride and share our posts to let people know about it!

About Camp Homewood

We are as committed to our mission today as we were in 1944: To present the gospel in an unthreatening atmosphere through quality programs and caring relationships, using God’s creation.

Our Philosophy

Homewood’s philosophy can be summarized as “ministering to the total person.” Christian camping is a powerful tool. To the believer, it is an opportunity to enjoy the Creator’s handiwork. To those who haven’t been introduced to Jesus Christ, it is a setting where His love for them can be communicated through the beauty of the earth and the care of those who serve here.

Our Staff

All of Homewood's full-time staff families serve as missionaries and are responsible for raising their own salaries. Each worker brings a unique skill set to the team as well as a love for people. Find out more about the people who serve year-round. Get to know our team

Our Camps

Homewood offers a wide range of programs for children, youth, and families including Sailing, Ranch, Woodsman, and Harbour camps plus Family and year-round weekend camps. Learn about our camps
