Funding/Costs

The level of remuneration offered to PSW’s is completely up to the families and the PSW to negotiate.  As a guide, BC Easter Seals Camps offers their returning staff a salary of $86.80/day.  Campers have varied needs, and some PSW’s may expect a higher salary.

It is the families responsibility to compensate the PSW.  The BC Lions Society does not charge for room and board for the PSW.  If you need support finding funding, we usually recommend asking a local Lions Club for funding.  The Lions Clubs are often familiar with our programs and in the past have been able to provide the individual funding for many campers.  They may request a letter or a short presentation from the family about the opportunity.  Please get in touch with us at the office (604-873-1865) if you would like the contact information of the Lions Club in your area.
