bringing the magic of easter seals to your home
Our Easter Seals Summer Camp is going virtual!
We are excited to bring our 50 years of Easter Seals Summer Camp experience, for children, youth and adults with diverse abilities, to the online learning world. Through interactive, fun and social online activities and programs, campers of all ages and diverse abilities learn with trained counsellors through role-playing game adventures, crafts, drawing, cooking and more.
Easter Seals Camp@Home is a new, unique camp experience that allows for children, youth and adults to have personal, genuine camp connections online.
Camp@Home has now finished for Summer 2020. Thank you to everyone who participated and support our first year of virtual camp. It was an amazing success!
Campers will find the same sense of community they have at overnight camp. Virtual camp will continue to be a place where campers can explore and develop their abilities in a safe, warm, fun and supportive environment, with weeks being divided into specific age groups and themes. Campers will be assigned a “Buddy Group” and have their very own counsellor for the week. They will meet virtually for various activities both in large all-camp groups and in their smaller Buddy Groups with the option of choosing which activities they would like to do. **Please note – campers will need to have a form of technology that allows them to access the video conferencing program Zoom.
Whether in activities together as a big group or in smaller group sessions, campers will have an experienced counsellor present at all times. Through live video streaming, counsellors lead discussions, offer mentorship, and cheer on campers during activities.
With a set daily schedule, campers will log in alongside their peers for engaging programming and social connection each day. Kids will be assigned a “Buddy Group” and counsellors will lead many of the loved traditions of camp, such as camp fire sing-a-longs and our famous Talent Show and Kangaroo Kourt.
One week before camp starts, your camper will receive a Camper Kit filled with all the supplies they will need to do the weekly activities. Each week’s activities will follow a different theme and may include various materials for arts and crafts projects, books, games and more.
Camper Kit Sponsors
Kits will be filled with lots of items, including some from these sponsors.
Camp registration is $75 to cover the cost of the camp kit. All other camp costs have been graciously covered by our amazing donors and sponsors.
Camp has now finished for the summer of 2020.
Each week of camp is broken into various groups between the ages of 6 to 49 years old.
All Sessions are Facilitated By
Experienced Camp Staff
