Camp He Ho Ha offers an opportunity for individuals with disabilities to enjoy an adapted recreational experience in a safe and supportive environment. Just as importantly we offer a much-needed break for parents and caregivers. Helping caregivers make an informed decision on summer camp is important to us, as well as equipping returning caregivers with information on how to prepare and what to expect while their camper is at camp.
The golden nugget hidden under the original intention of our summer camp is that our overnight programs also give respite to families and caregivers. While campers participate in activities, their families and caregivers can relax from the demands of caring for a family member with a disability. Supporting caregivers so they are less likely to suffer burnout and can return to caring for their loved one renewed and relaxed.
24 Hour Health Center
Two nursing staff are assigned to our Health Center on a 24-hour basis to serve the needs of our campers and staff. These nursing professionals operate a well-equipped medical center ensuring the well-being of all campers, accompanying aides and staff on site.
A hospital is located 30 mins away in Stony Plain and EMS is stationed 20 mins away in Evansburg; response times vary depending on their location when called. All summer staff are certified in First Aid and CPR and are familiarized with Camp’s emergency response plans and safety routines.
