A Sincere Thank You

We would like to extend to you our most sincere gratitude for your generous support. Many of our participants struggle with finding comfort in a new place so far from home. Often times this is accentuated by the stress of not knowing how basic necessities will be met. The Aquatabs you have generously donated will help our participants fully enjoy their camping experience. All too often children will remain in the comforts of their home even during the warm summer months. It is great to know that our participants can discover all the exciting opportunities that the Canadian wilderness has to offer and will do so adequately hydrated. The growth that takes place in our kids in as little as ten days is unbelievable. Participants leave from their experiences with confidence and a sense of self-worth. You have played a key role in developing those experiences. On behalf of the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation, its’ staff and all of the participants we would like to thank you once again for all of your support! We would love to continue this partnership for future seasons." Paul Luciani, Program Coordinator - Tim Horton Memorial Camp

Talk About Fast Shipping!

Talk about fast shipping! The Aquatabs arrived Friday morning before my hike so I was able to use them all weekend on the Western Uplands Trail in Algonquin. Easy. Much easier and lighter than the ClO2 mixed drops.
