Alberta Camp Got2Go

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is excited to host an overnight camp in 2022 from July 4th to 8th for children and teens (ages 9-17) living in Western Canada (BC, AB, SK, MB and the Territories) at Easter Seals Camp Horizon. The deadline to apply is June 6, 2022 (11:59 PM ET).

Camp Horizon is situated within the picturesque Rocky Mountain foothills just outside of Bragg Creek, Alberta. For over 50 years, Camp Horizon has been dedicated to providing children and youth a safe and nurturing environment to play, learn and interact with their peers.

Camp Horizon is the only facility in Alberta that offers camp programs tailored entirely to the needs of a specific special needs featured group each week. Many of their programs and equipment are unique to the rest of the province and to Canada.

For residents of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Territories, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada will cover the transportation and airport transfer costs for campers. Camp fees will follow the ‘pay what you can’ fee structure, and Crohn's and Colitis Canada will provide a subsidy to cover the remaining costs.

PLEASE NOTE: As we prepare for this season, we continue to observe the COVID-19 pandemic and the developments of provincial health guidelines. We are working closely with the Crohn's and Colitis COVID-19 and IBD Task Force and partner sites, to ensure the health and safety of our campers. Camp programs are subject to change if COVID-19 safety measures cannot be maintained at the partner site.
