Easter Seals  (New Brunswick)

Easter Seals NB is a community based charitable organization that provides support to children and adults, and works with a wide range of partners to eliminate barriers and improve life’s opportunities for people living with physical disabilities. Easter Seals has a number of programs that provide different supports starting with a specialized equipment recycling program.

The Rotary Camp experience promotes self-esteem, friendship, social comfort, and fun as a big part of healthy development. Camp Rotary offers a great chance for both children and adults with disabilities the chance to partake in all aspects of multi-day camp and outdoor fun, while helping build long lasting friendships. Camp staff is carefully selected based on excellent qualifications and maturity. They are well trained and dedicated to camper safety and well-being.

Owned by the Rotary Club of Fredericton, the camp facility can accommodate people of all ages and abilities. The camp offers many unique and adapted activities that some campers would not otherwise be able to try-including overnight tenting, sailing, and canoeing, to name a few. In a week, campers gain independence, peer relations, leadership skills and have the time of their lives!

Easter Seals has a high ratio of staff to campers to ensure the safety and the participation of all campers in activities. For each camper that registers we ask for a fifty dollar registration fee and then we start to look for assistance to help pay the balance of six hundred dollars. We campaign provincial Rotary Clubs and run our own campership mail campaign to help pay the way for campers. We try to stick with our motto "no camper is turned away". A project like yours will help us to increase the number of campers coming to Rotary camp in 2010.

Thank you for considering Easter Seals, Camp Rotary.
