Easter Seals Camp Woodeden (opened 1946)
Overlooking the Thames River on the outskirts of London, Easter Seals Camp Woodeden is situated on 107 acres of beautifully landscaped ground that includes an accessible treehouse, a collection of trees/plants from around the world, and beautiful Japanese influenced architecture. Originally known as “Woodholm,” Easter Seals acquired the property in 1946 to create a camp in southwestern Ontario for Easter Seals kids.
Woodeden currently has 18 buildings, including seven camper cabins, as well as an outdoor amphitheatre, outdoor swimming pool, fully accessible high ropes course (one of the largest in North America), accessible indoor climbing wall, outdoor pavilion and a fully accessible treehouse. In 2011, a new gym, climbing wall and life skills kitchen were opened.
The camp offers programs such as swimming, arts and crafts, pottery, music, drama, life skills and sports such as sledge hockey, archery, wheelchair basketball, lacrosse, badminton, a nature trail with Yurts for overnight sleep-outs and a fully accessible high ropes challenge course.
At Easter Seals Camp Woodeden, campers expand their leadership abilities through a myriad of creative arts programs and multi-sports activities.
The camp is run by a staff of 68, which includes a team of 3 registered nurses and 3 health care assistants.
