Easter Seals 24 Hour Camp Challenge: Win a Harbour Tour

Comments 67 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Easter Seals 24 Hour Camp Challenge is coming up June 13th and June 14th and is a community based fundraising event that involves groups of people participating in different camping and sporting events for 24 Hours.


Easter Seals 24 Hour Camp Challenge

The Easter Seals 24 Hour Camp Challenge event provides 12 hours of competitive fun and 12 hours of camping fun, all while raising funds to help send more than 800 BC kids with disabilities to BC Easter Seals overnight camps. Teams compete for fun in activities and games including relay races, skills challenges, trivia, volleyball and bocce and round out the day with live music and a taste of the unforgettable camp experience that BC Easter Seals provides.

The event takes place at Camp Squamish, a beautiful 22-acre site with endless grass fields, forested trails and amenities including washrooms, showers, fire pits, an outdoor barbecue pavilion and even an indoor pool. You’ll get a taste of just what your valuable fundraising provides: unforgettable camp experiences to children throughout the Province.

Teams are made up of co-workers, recreational groups, friends and family who collect individual pledges or organize team fundraising events to raise money towards their collective team total. All funds raised from this event go towards Easter Seals Camp Squamish. Follow 24 Hour Camp Challenge on Facebook and Twitter for more information and be sure to register today!

Easter Seals Camps give BC children and young adults with disabilities the chance to discover their individual abilities. Camp sessions are carefully planned and designed to encourage these kids to gain new skills, develop new friendships, gain confidence and independence – skills that will help them to live lasting and fulfilling lives.

On average, over 700 children and young adults with disabilities from all over BC attend a one-week camping session at one of three Easter Seals camps located across the province – Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island, Squamish near Vancouver and Winfield in the Okanagan.
