Your contribution will make a difference!

Thanks to generous Canadians, last year Easter Seals Camp Horizon enriched the lives of almost 1,600 individuals with disabilities and special needs including cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, ostomies, kidney impairments, hearing loss, augmentative communications, Crohn’s and Colitis, learning and developmental disabilities, cancer and diabetes.

Your donations mean that more children and adults of all abilities can experience the unique opportunity for challenge and success in customized outdoor adventures.

Unlike other summer camp programs, Easter Seals Camp Horizon requires a higher counsellor to camper ratio, additional medical staff as well as specialized equipment.

Easter Seals Camp Horizon subsidizes the cost of sending every child to camp by 50% therefore, we rely on the support of the community to make our camp programs possible. Financial contributions enable us to keep fees affordable to our campers.

Did You Know Part 1

In 1951 Canadian Mothers began marches such as one led by Canada’s first female Cabinet Minister, Ellen Fairclough, MP for Hamilton West. As a result of their efforts, the research of Dr. Jonas Salk was well funded, creating the historic made-in-Canada cure for polio. Today, Easter Seals Alberta funds vital programs and services for adults with disabilities and special needs.
