The Rotary Club of Halifax North West is once again challenging clubs throughout the district to sponsor a child to attend Camp Treasure Chest in summer of 2020.  The Lung Association of Nova Scotia hosts the only camp in Canada that supports children with lung health issues. In Nova Scotia, 10% of children have moderate to severe asthma, one of the most common childhood chronic afflictions.  Camp Treasure Chest gives them the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn new skills in a safe environment while learning the importance of self-care to manage their disease.

Our goal is to sponsor a minimum of 25 children which will make us a co-branding sponsor that will help to connect Rotary Clubs with a younger audience in the parents as well as students.

Maria Caines will be sending an email to each club contact that will include more details, a case for support and a sponsorship form. Be sure to check your inboxes and junk folders (attachments sometimes land there) as club members will be following up with a call as well. This is an opportunity to raise awareness of the camp in your area and, of course, the good work of the Rotarians
