Dear Easter Seals Families,
After very careful consideration, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Easter Seals Ontario, in consultation with its Board of Directors, has made the extremely difficult decision to suspend its summer camp program for 2020.
The health and safety of our staff and all of the children and families we serve are at all times our absolute top priority. Given the continuing high risk factors, government restrictions and general uncertainty surrounding the current COVID-19 situation, we regretfully have no other option this year.
I realize this is very disappointing news. However, I want to assure you this decision only relates to the 2020 camp season. EASTER SEALS CAMP WILL BE BACK IN 2021! We will be using the months ahead to work on the camps in preparation for an extra fun camp season next summer. Our Camp Directors will also be putting together some virtual camp activities for campers to take part in online over the summer. Stay tuned for these announcements!
If you made a payment toward camp fees, we will be in touch with you soon regarding your refund.
We will begin taking camper applications for 2021 in September – don’t worry we’ll send a reminder.
In the coming weeks and months, please stay positive and safe. We look forward to seeing all of you for an amazing summer of fun, friendships and adventure at Easter Seals camp in 2021.
Kevin J. Collins
President & CEO
