WHO WE ARE
Let Kids Lead was founded by Celeste Frank in 2019. Inspired by her own camp experience Celeste now works to provide foster children in York Region with a summer camp experience of their own. Let Kids Lead partners with York Region organizations in order to send foster children to Olympia Sports Camp in Hunstville, ON. We work to create a sustainable camp experience by providing four years of camp tuition.
In the first two years, Let Kids Lead campers will attend the Power-Up session, learning important life skills that will support them through school and beyond. During the last two years, campers have the opportunity to choose from one of the ninety program offerings including leadership, sports, arts, and science & technology.
