Okanagan Hockey Community Foundation provides financial aid to student-athletes who would benefit from attending summer hockey camp. Financial aid is provided to low income families or families that may have unexpected financial hardships.
OHCF has partnered with the Daryl K. Seaman Canadian Hockey Fund to provide 20 summer hockey camp bursaries in Kelowna, Edmonton, Calgary and Whitby. OHCF would like to partner with the local school districts in these areas to identity families that would benefit from this financial aid. There are 5 bursaries for the camp in Calgary at the Flames Community Arenas July 11 – August 5.
