Have a coffee and change a life on Tim Hortons Camp Day

Recently my daughter came home from ballet one day after having a snack afterwards at Tim Hortons. She said to me, “Mamma, you should write about Tim Hortons camp day. They do great work getting kids outdoors who really need it.

I was so lucky to visit one of Tim Hortons camp here in Ontario and I can say I was impressed by the work Tim Hortons is doing to get disadvantaged kids into a natural settings that they may not otherwise gexperience. I’m happy to share this information about Tim Hortons camp day.
