About Us

Thank You For Helping Us Make A Difference!

The Canadian Camp Store is an online retail company specializing in camping equipment for people of all experience levels.

We founded this company with a few principles in mind. First, how can we get quality outdoor equipment into the homes of people in a way that does not exclude anyone due to their family income. Secondly, How can our company give youth an opportunity change their life by going to summer camp. Our Founder Matthew Martel was a graduate of the Tim Horton Children's Foundation which he claims was " easily the biggest turning point in my life and it honestly gave me the skills and confidence to follow my passion and make a difference in the lives of others."

Our Mission

Our Mission is to bring products that are useful to our customers at prices that will not exclude anyone from sharing our passion for camping. We work hard to ensure that our products meet the needs of our customers and that we can make the biggest impact in our community. 

Our Vision

Our vision is to be North America's largest social enterprise specializing in outdoor equipment. We aim to bring together enthusiasts who are looking to make a meaningful impact in the lives of youth who could not otherwise have this opportunity.


Currently, our opportunity to make the largest impact is through donations to the Tim Horton's Children's Foundation and we are always meeting with new organizations to add to our portfolio of partners and make the biggest impact in the community possible.
