Easter Seals Camp Winfield finds support

Supported by Chevron Canada, campers at Camp Winfield is a fully accessible camp

The population of Winfield will again increase this summer as nearly 270 children and young adults with disabilities from across British Columbia and the Yukon experience Easter Seals Camp Winfield in July and August. Now supported by Chevron Canada, campers at Easter Seals Camp Winfield will not only experience the fully accessible camp complete with a climbing wall, low ropes course, pool, big swing, trampolines, and amphitheatre.

“Each year based on the needs of the campers, we arrange special outings at Camp Winfield and take the children to local parks, lakes, and/or other adventures. This year, with Chevron’s support, our accessible vehicles will be fueled by Chevron,” said Charlene Krepiakevich, President and CEO of Easter Seals BCY.

Easter Seals BCY is a charity that connects communities from across the province by providing services, programs, and facilities through Easter Seals House in Vancouver and Easter Seals Camps in Squamish, Shawnigan Lake and Winfield.
