National Youth Camp Program

The Support Our Troops National Summer Camp Program offers CAF member dependents the opportunity to attend a one-week summer camp (residential or day camp) experience for a well-deserved break from the stressors of military life. Focus is set on families of the fallen, families experiencing prolonged absences, special needs families, and families nominated by the Canadian Armed Forces Chain of Command. Since 2008 the Support Our Troops Summer Camp Program has helped send approximately 3,225 children of military families to camp. The demand continues to grow each year.

National Scholarship Program

The Support Our Troops National Scholarship Program offers serving and Veteran CAF member dependents the opportunity to apply for a bursary to assist with the cost of their education. 2018 marked the fourth year of the Scholarship Program, with nine partners/donors offering a total of $72,500 to dependents across Canada pursuing post graduate education. The applications received far outweighs the amount of scholarships available to the CAF community. Interested in supporting the scholarship program? Click here.
