Easter Seals C21® Kids To Camp

What is Easter Seals?

Easter Seals Ontario provides programs and services to children and youth with physical disabilities across Ontario to help them achieve greater independence, accessibility and integration. Funds raised and donated in Ontario stay in Ontario benefitting local children/youth and their families.

What is Century 21 ®  Send A Kid To Camp Program?

Easter Seals is Century 21 Canada’s charity of choice and has been for over 40 years. C21 Kids to Camp Program , which strives to raise funds to help send kids and youth living with disabilities across the country to Easter Seals’ accessible summer camps.  Since 1979, CENTURY 21 Canada has raised more than $12 million in support of local Easter Seals organizations, and have provided the opportunity for over 5,750 children and youth to enjoy and benefit from transformative and affirming experiences at Easter Seals camps, where they can have fun, push their boundaries in a safe and supportive environment, build and strengthen skills, and cultivate friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

For many of the Easter Seals' children/youth, camp is where they make the only friends they have. They can have fun, push their boundaries in a safe and supportive environment, build and strengthen skills, and cultivate friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. They can be themselves without being judged, stared at or made fun of. Last summer, camp was held virtually and in some areas (where permitted) day camps were available. It's looking like it will be run in this format again in 2021 but the funding requirement remains. The maintenance of programs, equipment and support is ongoing to give independence, experiences and memories to our Easter Seals’ children/youth and their families.
