What is Boat for Hope?

Boat for Hope was created in 1999 with the mandate to share the boating experience with children who have special needs associated with Variety – The Children’s Charity. 

Each year, children depart from Kerry Park for an adventure on the ‘high seas’.  Boat owners will dress up in pirate suits, decorate their boats and take children on a treasure hunt through the waters of Okanagan Lake.  The children will help navigate their course, as they stop at checkpoints along the way to collect their loot.
