Summer is a time for having fun and feeling free and the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC would like to help make that happen! As an organization, our vision is to help provide a Life Without Limits. One of the ways we do this is through financially assisted Camperships for individuals of all ages with Cerebral Palsy.
Each year we receive numerous applications and we try to provide assistance for as many individuals as possible. This year, we were able to assist 15 people go to a camp of their choosing.
One of our campers was Matthew Baker who attended Camp Amasa this summer. Matthew wrote us a letter telling us what a great time he had and shared some of his highlights with us. The camp offered Matthew a lot of fun and exciting opportunities for him. Matthew says he enjoyed a lot of food and making new friends. He went on an incredible daytrip to Watermania and had fun splashing around in the pool! He told us of a performer who came to their camp and played music for them, which Matthew said was really fun to see! Matthew enjoyed attending various speeches as well as a funny puppet show which were all very entertaining and educational. Our happy camper says he even went on a wonderful horse wagon ride which was delightful. Thanks to the CPABC’s Campership program, Matthew was welcomed with amazing summer camping activities and did what he loves.
