Stevenson Children's Camp provides a fun-filled, week long, residential camp experience to children of London and Middlesex who would not otherwise have such an opportunity to attend a summer camp experience due to financial barriers. Most families pay $15 for their child to attend. The entire budget is met with personal donations, social club, and corporate donations and assistance from The United Way. Good food, fresh air, positive, active and intentional play is what camp is all about. A little sunshine goes a long way.
