Western Camp

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is excited to host an overnight camp for 40 children and teens living in Western Canada at Easter Seals Camp Horizon from July 8-13, 2018

For 2018, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada will cover the return flight and airport transfer costs for a number of youth (ages 9-17) to attend Camp Got2Go. Interested applicants must apply by May 1, 2018. Campers will be randomly selected and all applicants will be notified in mid-May. Additional spots are available for youth (age 9-17) living within driving distance of camp or whose families are able to cover their transportation costs. The deadline to apply is May 1, 2018.   After the deadline, campers will be randomly selected and all applicants will be notified by mid-May.

Camp Horizon is situated within the picturesque Rocky Mountain foothills just outside of Bragg Creek, Alberta. For over 50 years, Camp Horizon has been dedicated to providing children and youth a safe and nurturing environment to play, learn and interact with their peers. Camp Horizon is the only facility in Alberta that offers camp programs tailored entirely to the needs of a specific special needs featured group each week. Many of their programs and equipment are unique to the rest of the province and to Canada.

Camp fees will be based on a ‘pay what you can’ fee structure.
