Volunteer Opportunities

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Counsellors are assigned to a cabin of campers with other volunteers/staff. As a team everyone works together to help create a supportive, fun and safe community for the campers.  Volunteers participate in the activities with campers, supervise their campers, and assist their campers with their personal care as needed.  Overall the volunteers role is to ensure that their campers have the best camp experience possible.

If you are interested in volunteering with Easter Seals Camp Horizon please email our Manager, Resources at resourcemanager@easterseals.ab.ca or call us  at 403-949-3818 ext. 28

Volunteer with Easter Seals

Did You Know Part 1

In 1951 Canadian Mothers began marches such as one led by Canada’s first female Cabinet Minister, Ellen Fairclough, MP for Hamilton West. As a result of their efforts, the research of Dr. Jonas Salk was well funded, creating the historic made-in-Canada cure for polio. Today, Easter Seals Alberta funds vital programs and services for adults with disabilities and special needs.
