About Easter Seals
Easter Seals is dedicated to fully enhancing the quality of life, self-esteem and self-determination of Canadians with disabilities. As Canada's largest local provider of programs, services, issues-leadership and development for the disability community, Easter Seals is dedicated to helping Canadians with disabilities participate fully in society, living lives to their full potential. Easter Seals provincial organizations offer transformative programs and services at the local level, the best known of which are Easter Seals camp programs. Every year thousands of children challenge themselves while having the time of their lives at Easter Seals camps nationwide. Other services include year-round active living opportunities, as well as the provision of specialized mobility and access equipment such as mobility aids, assistive technology, adaptive computers, augmentative communication devices and adaptations to homes and vehicles for wheelchair accessibility. Normally these assistive aids are cost prohibitive for most people and families. With help from its donors and sponsors, Easter Seals works to ensure that everyone with a disability has access to the equipment and services they need to make the most of their abilities.
Camp is a Life-Changer
Summer camp has been changing lives forever! Whether you are an able-bodied camper, a camper living with a disability or participated as a staff member – camp can be life-changing!Easter Seals sends kids to 16 summer camps across Canada. These fully accessible properties allow kids with disabilities to have experiences they would never otherwise have – the opportunity to participate fully in the out-of-doors for the first time, with a camp full of kids who have had largely, a shared life experience - hard to match! Just imagine for a second what it would take for a youngster in a wheelchair to go on a canoe ride. Or swing high off the ground on a ropes course. Or swim in a lake. Or toast marshmallows over an open fire. Or participate in a camp-wide scavenger hunt. Or sleep away from home in a bunk surrounded with a group of new friends who understand how they feel on any given day.This is the gift of camp.
