Get Involved

There are many ways you can get involved in our programs, services or organization.  You may have time to give, skills, services, experience or financial resources.  We have different opportunities that allow the community to support BC Easter Seals Camps.  Every bit counts!

Employment
Spending a summer as a member of staff at a BC Easter Seals camp is a unique opportunity to share your energy, ideas and strengths/skills with kids who will, in turn, enrich your world. Camp is a lot more than a summer job. Every individual who attends or works at camp finds it a positive, life-changing experience.  Camp teaches you to see strengths in every person; regardless of differences.  You also create many lasting and rewarding friendships, which carry on well after camp ends.  Working as a camp counsellor, lifeguard, nurse or programmer at a BC Easter Seals Camp is one of the best jobs on earth!

Volunteering
Volunteers are an important part of our program!  Spending a week as a member of an Easter Seals camp is a unique opportunity to share your energy, your ideas and your strengths with kids who will, in turn, enrich your world. Every week we have between 1-4 volunteers join us at camp.

Financial Donation
We rely completely on the generosity of our donors to "Help Give Children Abilities". Every donation counts no matter the size and we couldn't offer Easter Seals Service for children in BC and Yukon without your help.

Fundraising
The BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities hosts many different fundraising events to help raise the funds needed to operate the BC Easter Seals Camps and Houses. We also collaborate with members of the community for third party fundraisers.

Camp Supplies
Successfully operating our program takes a lot of supplies! Everything from duct tape to tie dye to ice packs to costumes- all are needed to make camp a safe and fun place! If you can help us out in some way please contact us first at camp@eastersealsbcy.ca.   We are looking to find items that can be donated as gifts in kind or to purchase them at discounted rates.  We really appreciate your help!
