Volunteer Opportunities


We are currently accepting volunteers for our upcoming weekend camps. Volunteers commit to a full weekend of camp (Friday evening to midday Sunday).  Volunteers should enjoy being outdoors and working with people of all ages and abilities. Previous camp experience or working with individuals with disabilities is considered an asset.

Fall Sleepover: October 31- November 2

For campers with physical/developmental disabilities ages 7-17 and one sibling or friend.  This camp is ideal for new or young campers who have never attended our Light Up A Life summer camp and is a great opportunity to sample what camp is all about. 

Teen Retreat: November 21-23

For Campers with physical/developmental disabilities ages 15-25. This camp is designed for teens and young adults as they transfer from our kids camps to adult camps, as well as for new campers to join in on the fun! Teen Retreat is a great place to connect with peers and create friendships with other teens. We will also be running all of our campers favourite activities throughout the weekend. 

Christmas Camp: December 23-26

For Campers with physical/developmental disabilities ages 18 and up. Activities will include Christmas baking, karaoke, bowling, spa, crafts, bonfires, carolling, banquet and dance and, of course, a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus on Christmas morning. 

Camp volunteers must complete a volunteer application form and provide a police record check (including vulnerable sector check) valid within the past year. Camp orientation and volunteer training are provided; accommodations and meals are included.

Volunteer with Easter Seals

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.
