Last week we were invited to attend the Easter Seals Camp in beautiful Squamish BC. Wow! All l I can say is how grateful we are to have the honour of being involved in such a wonderful program. This camp is mind blowing...the feeling of being in the middle of the forest, huge trees, kids laughing, grounds extremely tidy and all 45 kids busy doing something, somewhere at the camp.
You know, I was expecting something different...not sure what. But I tell you, what we saw was something better than I could have imagined. This now gives us even more meaning for why we have decided to partner up with Easter Seals.
Some of the kids were shy (for about 15 seconds) and then the kid came out of them...we had a wonderful visit. The camp holds 45 kids at a time each week, up to the age of 18; after that, the young adult can come back as a volunteer or counselor.
There is no cost to the parents to send their children to this camp; Easter Seals takes care of it all. Some of the kids we met have been coming here for 11+ years and when we asked them if they enjoy it, their faces lit up.
Thanks to Nirm Blatchford for the invitation, thank you to Easter Seals and the people running the camp (great job) and a special thanks to the kids for sharing their day!
