Every child is different, and Easter Seals Ontario realizes that some children (or their parents) may not be ready for a full 10-day camp experience. For this reason, Easter Seals offers Discovery Camp, a 5-day program directed towards young, first-time campers, which takes place at both Camp Merrywood and Camp Woodeden.
Easter Seals Camps offer a nurturing environment, carefully organized to provide the support, supervision and structure that first time campers require. Both Camp Merrywood and Camp Woodeden have a staff/camper ratio of 1:2 with 3 registered nurses on site. There are no more than 8 campers per cabin during any session, to ensure your child receives the attention they require.
Discovery Camp will give your child a feel for being away from home and a taste of independence. Campers will have the opportunity to participate in nightly campfires and enjoy all of the camp activities.
Campers under the age of 19 years as of July 1 (of the camping year) and who are not a Crown Ward, are eligible to receive funding from Easter Seals Ontario. Families are asked to pay what they can, with a minimum payment of $125. The remainder will be funded by our generous donors.
