Best Day Ever Blanket Fort

When: Saturday, May 13, 2017 11:00am to 3:00pm
Where: TELUS Garden (510 West Georgia St, Vancouver)

The corner of Seymour and Georgia will be transformed with the construction of a massive, interactive blanket fort that will span almost 2,000 square feet, made possible by TELUS. Event attendees will be transported to one of their favourite childhood pastimes featuring interactive musical performances, childhood culinary delights, and family-friendly games and activities, making this a perfect outing for Mother’s Day weekend.

“Canuck Place has taught my family to live life to the fullest,” said Cherie, mother of Canuck Place child Charlie-Anne.

“Charlie-Anne loves Canuck Place. Despite living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1, Canuck Place offers her adventures we never thought would be possible. This year we’re going camping at one of their recreational therapy day camps which I never dreamed we would be able to do together. Canuck Place helps us have fun, pack in new memories and simply savour our best days ever together.”

    I’ve been very lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of the exceptional staff @ Canuck Place many years ago as a TOC/substitute teacher job sharing with Brenda. One of my favourite memories was arranging an afternoon tea party and inviting two Vancouver Police and their horses. Laura, Recreational Therapist, I believe, made the event possible. Every day is loving, caring and special at Canuck Place.
