- Tim Hortons Camp Day has now raised approximately $250 million in its history, which has supported sending more than 315,000 youth to Tims Camps for a life-changing experience.
Tim Hortons is proud to announce that with the support of Tims guests, restaurant owners, team members, and volunteers, this year's Camp Day campaign raised $12.7 million that will be donated to Tim Hortons Foundation Camps.
Tim Hortons Camp Day has now raised approximately $250 million in its history, which has supported sending more than 315,000 underserved youth between the ages of 12 to 16 to a multi-year camp-based program at Tims Camps. Campers are equipped with skills like leadership, resilience, and responsibility, empowering them to open doors to their future.
Every year on Camp Day, Tim Hortons and its restaurant owners donate 100 per cent of the proceeds from hot and iced coffee sales to Tim Hortons Foundation Camps and raise additional funds through Camp Day bracelets, Donation Badges, and other unique fundraising initiatives developed by local Tims restaurant owners and their team members.
"We'd like to thank every single person who came out to support Camp Day this year and helped us achieve this incredible result that will directly change so many lives," said Axel Schwan, President of Tim Hortons.
"Camp Day is an amazing team effort with our 1,500 restaurant owners, team members, volunteers and of course our generous guests all coming together to support the amazing work of Tim Hortons Foundation Camps."

"For many of us, Camp Day is one day of the year, but for campers, it's the rest of their lives," said Rob Eatough, Executive Director of Tim Hortons Foundation Camps.
"Every dollar donated on Camp Day – our largest and most critical fundraiser – helps youth envision their lives beyond their current circumstances. Thanks to Tim Hortons restaurant owners, team members and guests, Camp Day helps youth imagine themselves carving a path to college or university, and ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty because they were given the opportunity to develop life-changing skills at Tims Camps."
