BCU Financial was proud to once again support the Ukrainian Youth Association of Canada (CYM) in organizing this year’s summer camps. CYM ’s 2023 summer camps, including Counsellor-in-Training Camp – Вишкільний Табір, Youth Overnight Camp – Відпочинковий Табір, Adventure Camp – Мандрівний Табір and Children’s Day Camp – Денний Дитячий Табір, ran through the month of July at Camp Veselka. Notably, BCU Foundation was proud to also support the Благодійний Табір для Дітей-Біженців – Children’s Day Camp for newcomers and displaced children who fled the war in Ukraine.
The children had a chance to enjoy the outdoors, swimming, sports, music and dancing, day trips to museums, learning and projects about Ukraine, and much more. The summer camps are an important part of the CYM curriculum and provide the opportunity for campers to go out in nature and learn new skills, all while making new friends and memories.
We would like to congratulate all the children on the successful completion of their camps and thank CYM and the many volunteers who work hard to organize and execute the many camps, and for the important work they are doing for our youth!
