Financial aid for special needs camp
The Cerebral Palsy Association of BC helps people live a life without limits with the Campership Program, which financially assists individuals of all ages to attend a special needs camp of their choice in BC.
Our camp subsidies have gone towards costs such as partial camp fees, transportation, and attendant care fees.
Without the help of an attendant, many individuals could not attend camp. Although the camp session itself may be free to the participant, the expensive attendant care fee can be a barrier for people wishing to attend camps.
Summer is a time for having fun and feeling free. If you would like to contribute towards next year’s Campership program please contact us at 604-408-9484 or 1-800-663-0004 to make a donation.
- Applications will close on Sunday July 29th, 2018.
- Please note that due to high demand, the extension for Langley residents is now CLOSED. The extension for Delta residents is still open and will remain open until August 31st.
