COVID-19 UPDATE: We miss our campers! The Arthritis Society continues to closely monitor provincial health recommendations and guidelines for summer camps and we look forward to offering our in-person camps again when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, please visit our Club Sunrise page to learn more about our virtual offerings for youth living with arthritis and other rheumatic diseases.


Hosted at Camp Kindle in the picturesque Rocky Mountain Foothills, just outside of Water Valley, Camp All In This Together welcomes youth ages 8-17 diagnosed with arthritis from Alberta (and in some cases BC and Saskatchewan) to experience a week of a perfect camping experience despite medical problems or physical limitations.  

Along with the many fun activities campers enjoy, they will meet and share the experience with other children living with childhood arthritis. The medical and trained camp staff are sensitive to the children’s special needs, and young adults with arthritis serve as mentor group leaders.

What We Pack into Each Day

Your child will be staying for five days and four nights in dorm rooms with trained counselors and kids around their same age. Each day they will participate in activities that usually include a water activity, an indoor activity, or a fun physical activity. In the evening, kids enjoy more activities or events such as campfire songs, stories, and a camp dance.

All Camp Kindle programs follow the “Challenge by Choice” philosophy, which allows participants to define success individually, giving them the opportunity to choose the level at which they challenge themselves.

Food

Camp Kindle is committed to catering to the unique needs of every group with an emphasis on the Canada Food Guide. The chef will create healthy, tasty meals and can provide special medical or faith-based menus upon request.

Medical Services

The ReKindle Clinic is ideal for groups of children who require additional medical care or support. There are two private rooms with en suite bathrooms in the clinic for assessment, quarantine, or as a quiet place for a camper to rest. Before any specialized group arrives at the camp, the staff is briefed on medical issues that may arise. We want the entire camp experience to be amazing – and the ReKindle Clinic offers peace of mind to campers and their families.
