Easter Seals provincial members offer a range of active living and accessibility programs and services for people with disabilities.
The most famous are Easter Seals camp programs which annually serve more than 6,000 children with disabilities at 15 locations across the country. The summer camps have what you would normally expect: camp fire stories and songs, swimming, kangaroo court, structured activities and so on. Some even include a climbing wall, high rope course and giant swing – all fully accessible to kids with disabilities. Easter Seals camps also offer a counselor to camper ratio of three to one.
Other services include year-round sport and social opportunities, as well as the provision of specialized mobility and access equipment such as mobility aids, assistive technology, adaptive computers, augmentative communication devices and adaptations to homes and vehicles for wheelchair accessibility.
