Youth Camp

Our chapter raises funds gathered from individual donations, monthly meeting raffles and from investment in the sale of “break-open” lottery tickets to enable us to sponsor children with ostomies to attend a one-week stay at the Ostomy Canada Society sanctioned ‘Ostomy Youth Camp’ located in Bragg Creek Alberta. The camp is usually held during the first week in July. The number of children we sponsor depends on the amount of money raised during the year.

Children with ostomies who attend this camp come from all over Canada. The camp is run by the Easter Seals Foundation and accommodates other children’s groups throughout the summer. Space is limited, so registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Sponsored children do not have to be members of the chapter but must have a permanent residence in Ontario. Parents are not allowed to attend camp with their children. There are experienced staff, nurses, cousellors, and trained volunteers, many of whom are ostomates and former campers themselves, who will look after the needs of each child. An unforgettable experience for campers of all ages. We can help with registration, airline bookings and provide current information.
