Financial aid - Fred

What is the
Fred Grant?

At one time, Camp Carowanis was struggling with the high cost of accommodation and care for young people living with diabetes. Out of this situation came a ray of hope, the Fred Foundation. Its purpose was clear: to support Camp Carowanis and mobilize resources to help it flourish. Over the years, Fred has grown into a full-fledged foundation, giving rise to many innovative programs to support families affected by type 1 diabetes across Quebec.

At the heart of this evolution is a fundamental mission: to provide financial assistance to families in need, so that every child can have the extraordinary opportunity to live the magical experience of Camp Carowanis. Thus was born the Fred Grant.

The Grant embodies Fred’s unwavering commitment to youth, and its deep conviction that no child should be denied the opportunity to participate in this extraordinary camp. Fred believes in the power of outdoor adventure, camaraderie and self-discovery. The Foundation is driven by a burning desire to enable every child, regardless of financial situation, to benefit from all the wonders Camp Carowanis has to offer.
