It is through the continued support of our partners that MRU Kids continues to exist. Their generosity has contributed to the success of the camp for more than 25 years. Our proud partners include Mount Royal University, Canadian Natural Resources Limited and Between Friends. These companies have chosen to support MRU Kids because they, too, believe children should be able to learn in a fun, safe and engaging environment.

We would also like to thank Dana Hospitality for supporting the MRU Kids lunch program.                                                                                                                                SSDATA_CE_Kids_DanaLogo 

Benefits of Becoming a Partner or Donor

Through partnership and donations, MRU Kids is able to offer innovative and exciting opportunities to children and youth in Calgary and the surrounding areas. MRU Kids operates on a cost-recovery basis; therefore, partnerships within the community are essential in assisting with the marketing and promotion of our programs.
