 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.

How can YOU help us make a difference and get involved?

Skippers Needed! Dress up in your finest pirate attire, decorate your sailboats to suit the occasion and join us on the water to take part in the fantastic event.
