In an effort to make attendance at SPEC (Camp Spectacular) a possibility for as many youth as possible, Canada West Mission will be running a GoFundMe campaign from February 14 to March 14, 2020. The purpose of this fundraiser is to support eligible Canada West campers with the registration costs associated with attending SPEC.
How You Can Help
Due to the high cost of travel plus SPEC registration fees (payable in USD), the cost per camper is C$2000. Canada West Mission has provided a subsidy which reduces the registration fee to C$1000 per camper. This registration fee can be cost prohibitive for some campers. With your generous support, we hope to further reduce the registration fee to give all youth the opportunity to attend SPEC.
All funds raised will be split 50/50 with half supporting 2020 campers and the remainder being saved for future years of SPEC costs.
Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate a lot or a little. Anything helps. We are asking you to share the GoFundMe link with your friends and family to generate support for our youth. Thank you for your support!
All donations are income tax deductible with receipts for charitable purposes being issued directly by GoFundMe.
