Helping kids change their stories.
Our largest and most well-known initiative is the Tim Hortons Foundation Camps. Established in 1974 by Ron Joyce, co-founder of the Tim Hortons chain, it was created in honor of Tim Horton's love of children and his desire to help those less fortunate.
The foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing a fun-filled camp experience for children who would otherwise never have the opportunity. The positive impact the camp experiences have on the children is irreplaceable.
Tim Hortons Foundation Camps operate seven different camps across Canada and the United States.
In Canada, six camps span across five provinces, with two in Ontario and one each in Nova Scotia, Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta. Kentucky is home to our US camp. Tim Horton Foundation Camps recognizes that our work takes place on traditional Indigenous lands across North America. In an effort to support our Indigenous youth through the reconciliation process, we are grateful to acknowledge our ability to roam, learn and reflect on these Indigenous lands.
