Ostomy Youth Camp
Cancelled Due to Covid-19
It is with regret that we write to inform you that the Ostomy Canada Youth Camp will not be held this July at Easter Seals Camp Horizon.
As a result of the continuing rise in cases of COVID-19, the main reason for the cancellation is the health and safety of campers and volunteers. There continues to be great uncertainty as to when restrictions will be lifted and allow our daily lives to resume under some framework of normalcy. Therefore, it is in the best interests of everyone involved that the Ostomy Canada Youth Camp be once again cancelled.
You can be assured that there will be other opportunities for your children to attend Ostomy
Canada Youth Camp in the coming years. Although no final decision has been made, we are
looking at what virtual options may exist for our campers in July 2021. We will keep you
advised if and when plans begin to unfold for virtual camp programming. It is important that
we have your correct address and e-mail address to ensure that we are able to contact you
with further details.
We hope that you and your families remain healthy and keep safe.
With best regards,
Lisa Gausman, Ostomy Canada Youth Camp Administrator
