Make Your Fundraiser a Green One

 

Bag2School is the perfect fundraising solution for schools, churches, sports teams – any group wanting to fundraise while helping the environment.  Students/parents clean out their closets, bringing their gently used clothing, linens, and other textiles to school.  Bag2School will collect and weigh the bags, presenting the school with a cheque. All promotional materials are free of charge, such as colourful posters, large blue bags to hold the clothing, as well as an information label affixed to each bag.

the Bata Shoe Museum

 

Discover the treasures of North America's charming and surprising shoe museum. Hundreds of shoes (from a collection numbering over 10,000) are on exhibit in architect Raymond Moriyama's award-winning four-storey structure.

The Museum celebrates the style and function of footwear in four impressive galleries. Footwear on display ranges from Chinese bound foot shoes and ancient Egyptian sandals to chestnut-crushing clogs and glamourous platforms. Over 4,500 years of history and a collection of 20th-century celebrity shoes are reflected in the semi-permanent exhibition, All About Shoes. Three other galleries feature changing exhibitions, so there's always something new to see.

CAMP WABIKON

 

Each summer 6-17 year old youth from around the world travel to Camp Wabikon's magnificent location in Temagami, Ontario to participate in our quality program, including over 30 land and water activities. Campers love the freedom of being able to choose their activities each day using our personal choice sign-up system. Each camper is encouraged to try all of the activities offered at camp, including a cabin group canoe trip. This experience, in the breathtaking scenery of Temagami, is a highlight of many campers' stay at Wabikon. All of our activities are taught by qualified, caring instructors with equal focus on learning and enjoyment. Campers have the opportunity to challenge themselves physically and gain valuable life skills such as independence, self-confidence, compassion and integrity. As an overnight camp, campers have the unique experience to bond with their cabin mates and counsellors, forming friendships and memories to last a lifetime. Our staff to camper ratio is 1:3. The majority of our Staff members have spent a significant number of summers as campers and Counsellors-In-Training at Wabikon. We are a family owned and operated business that takes great pride in the work we do. For over 35 years we have continued to provide an outstanding Canadian camping experience. One week introductory sessions available for first-time campers. Please visit our website www.wabikon.com for more information and contact us for a free DVD/brochure package and references. We look forward to sharing Wabikon with your family.
