Helping Kids Play


The Helping Kids Play Foundation was established in Parry Sound in 1994 to provide all children with an opportunity to participate in sport, recreational and cultural activities by assisting with the cost of registration fees as well as equipment fees.

In 2005, Helping Kids Play Foundation partnered with Canadian Tire JumpStart program giving all kids in Parry Sound between the ages of 4 and 18 years the opportunity to participate in organized activity.

Canadian Tire JumpStart is offering a FREE Summer Camp! 

Just like a regular camp, they’ll have campers, awesome counsellors (some of Canada's best athletes and special guests) and cool weekly themes. The best part? You can take part virtually from your own home!

How does it work? They’ll share activities every weekday at 8:30 a.m. Eastern on their Instagram and Facebook pages. Simply tune in, and your kids can follow along - no sign-up required! Kids won’t need anything except themselves (and maybe a few simple things from around the house). Don’t forget sunscreen, of course. 

Applications have all moved online - for more information, please visit:
