CAMP FEES

In order to provide the high quality, fun, and safe experience that parents expect and children deserve here at Easter Seals Camp Horizon, we invest in the very best staff, facilities, food, and equipment. Each program’s fee is determined by the length of the program, staffing requirements, and what activities are offered. Easter Seals Camp Horizon is committed to ensuring that every person who is eligible can access camp, and subsidizes the cost of each camper’s fee by 50%. As our programs are not eligible for government funding, annually we must raise over $380,000 to offer these subsidies. We are proud to partner with groups throughout the province and the country who are equally as committed to this experience, and who subsidize the cost even further for specific weeks of camps or specific campers. To inquire about the cost of our summer camps for children and youth, please contact us by e-mail or the partner group for that specific week of camp.
