These are the options to support meals at Camp fYrefly:

  • I want to provide a financial donation to support a breakfast, lunch or dinner at camp ($500)

  • I want to provide a financial donation to support a snack at camp ($150)

  • My organization will bring a group of volunteers (4-10) to come prepare and serve a meal at camp.

  • I am applying to help as an individual volunteer to support the Food Team for a meal(s).


You can pick one or any combination of these in the form below!


*Note: We ask all organizations supporting our kitchen with a financial donation to provide this online or by mail (through a cheque addressed to the University of Alberta), and send e-mail confirmation to the Camp Coordinator (email address below). We cannot accept food donations, as each meal has a set menu to accommodate youth and volunteer diets. More information about donating is on our website at:
