Seeds of Hope Summer Camp for Youth
YFC / Youth Unlimited is serving youth in a tough neighbourhood in Toronto. Leslie Ferenc wrote an article that was featured in the Toronto Star.
Itís gotten a bad rap, but for those who know Jane-Finch as well as Betty Bailey, itís a community where good things happen every day. And sheís helping the neighbourhood reach its full potential one child at a time, at Seeds of Hope ó a summer camp for kids 6 to 12.
For Bailey, assistant director at the YFC / Youth Unlimited program, camp is where magic happens. Itís also in her DNA; Baileyís love of outdoor adventures began when she was a girl in Jamaica. She loved camp so much she became a teacher so she could keep summers free for camp. All these years later, Bailey is still a very happy camper, organizing day and overnight camp programs at Seeds of Hope.
One of the highlights of Seeds of Hope camp 2013 was a day trip to Toronto's Casa Loma.
