BC Camp

It was a wonderful, adventure-filled week in July, the result of the efforts of a team of tremendous people! Thank you so much to the fabulous kids who made the experience so meaningful for everyone involved.  Special thanks to the team at BC Children's Hospital for helping to make Camp possible - Jayne, Jenny, Heather, Danielle and Iris, who were all hands on deck all of the time, the pediatric rheumatology team, and to all of the families and supporters of The Arthritis Society who have kept the legacy of this unique educational retreat for kids with arthritis around the province going.  We are 35 years strong! It was never a dull moment as the kids got to experience the team-building of dragon boating, test their martial arts skills with some Jiu Jitsu in the park, and create memorable moments (and many laughs) out on the green with pitch and putt golf.  BC CampA very special nod to photographer, Jenn Best, who captured the essence and the experience of the kids with her beautiful images.  Can’t wait for next year!  If you are interested in making a donation in support of our camp and educational retreat for children living with arthritis, please contact Liesl at ldrayton@arthritis.ca or 604.714.5557.
