50 years of Honeython!
The Honeython fundraiser that we just completed in December was the 50th year anniversary of this wonderful fundraiser. We are so very grateful for the support we receive from Crerar’s Honey and from all of you who purchase honey. Your purchases and generous donations mean so much to us and help us as we aim to provide leadership and growth opportunities to the young women of the Outaouais area.
A Few Words About Camp Kalalla 2022
We were so excited to be back on site! We had a great group of campers and LITs, and a wonderful staff. We ran lots of fun programming…
- Crafts (the campers made cool wind chimes and many gifts for their Secret Friends!),
- Art (special fairy houses and amazing eggshell art creations were on the menu this year),
- Waterfront (everyone developed new skills in Swimming, Canoeing and Kayaking)
- Discovery Time (the campers had lots of great conversations with each other!),
- Overnights, singsongs, wide games, crazy unit meals, cookouts, Talent Show… and more!
It was wonderful to be together in person again- it is a special group of campers and staff who gather at Kalalla. We feel so privileged to be able to be a part of the laughter, singing, personal growth and learning that happens on site each summer.
A big thank you to our dedicated staff. It takes a lot to make a camp run – counsellors, property managers, business managers, LIT directors, waterfront staff, kitchen staff, programme staff, health care… the list is a long one!
We also have to thank the people who support us in the city both before and during camp—the registrar who takes your information, the treasurer who manages our finances, the coordinator who makes sure we have a bus and a place to meet it, the health care team who developed our Covid policy and helped make sure our return to site was managed safely. We can’t do what we do without you all.
And as always, a huge thank you to the campers and their families! Thank you for your support – for coming to help with work parties on site, for attending events throughout the year, for support with our fundraisers. Camp Kalalla is a volunteer-run, non-profit charity—we really appreciate all the help we receive from our wider Kalalla family. We couldn’t continue to function without you!
