Common Questions & Answers about SMAP

How does SMAP work?

SMAP gives you the tools to fundraise on behalf of One Hope Canada for the SMAP Fund. One Hope Canada can then, in turn, hire summer missionaries through our participating camps because of the fundraising that you and others have done for the SMAP Fund.

What are the age and length of service requirements for SMAP?

You must be at least 16 years old or going into grade 11. You must serve at least 4 weeks at camp to qualify for this program.

How are the SMAP funds distributed?

All funds are processed centrally at our Winnipeg office. We will forward the funds to the various participating camps who in turn will distribute them to all SMAP participants as a final payroll by mid September. These funds will be processed as regular payroll by the camp with payroll deductions taken off.

Is there a maximum that I can fund raise?

No. One Hope Canada is grateful for the generosity of all donors and uses gifts you have raised on behalf of SMAP to enable the fund to cover your wage for the summer, after which, any additional funds assists others who have also enrolled in SMAP.

How much will I be able to receive being on SMAP?

Each camp decides how to distribute SMAP funds. Please refer to the this chart for the maximum allowable limits. Please speak to your camp director for more details.

When can I begin?
