Today is a special day at Tim Hortons locations all across Maine and New Brunswick… It’s Camp Day.

You’re probably wondering, “What is Camp Day?” It’s a huge fundraising effort that will help send more than 16,000 kids on the camping adventure of a lifetime! The really cool thing? YOU can help! All you need to do is guy a cup of coffee at any Tim Hortons location. All proceeds will go directly to sending a kid to camp, who could not afford to go otherwise.

A really neat thing is that all of the children that get to go to camp have been selected from within their own community. So that means that kids from all over Aroostook County and even New Brunswick are actually benefiting from Camp Day. Tim Hortons  Restaurant Owners work very closely with local youth organizations and schools to select children between the ages of 9 and 12, to attend a 10 day summer camp session or seven day winter camp session.

You can help by coming in to any Tim Hortons location and buying a coffee, you can “Rent-a-Tent” where you can personalize paper cut-out tents and post them in the restaurant for a donation, and you can even donate online!
