Camps are a great way for children with epilepsy to develop social and leadership skills, increase independence, and explore new activities.
The BC Epilepsy Society provides financial subsidies to help cover the costs of various camp programs. These are for children who need extra support due to medical needs and learning or physical disabilities.
The subsidies reimburse camp costs up to $150 and are awarded on the basis of financial need. Recipients must be a current member of the BC Epilepsy Society to be eligible, and the deadline to apply in 2018 is June 15th. Click here to download the summer camp subsidy form.
Subsidies are also offered for adaptive day camps.
For more information about these subsidies, please contact our office at 604-875-6704.
