2022 Registration Update

We are excited to welcome our campers back in 2022! We’ve missed you! We continue to closely monitor provincial health guidelines for summer camps and will make adjustments to our plans based on government recommendations, always keeping the safety of our campers as our top priority.

This year, most camps will be prioritizing campers who have never had the opportunity to attend camp before. Once we have an understanding of how many new campers are interested in attending, we will assign spots for returning campers based on a lottery system, ensuring equitable access for all campers. Registration will be done in three phases:

We look forward to seeing you soon!

For those of you who would prefer to connect with other youth living with arthritis virtually, we encourage you to visit our Club Sunrise page.

For thousands of Canadian children, summer camp is an opportunity to make friends, have fun outdoors, and develop wonderful memories. Unfortunately, children with arthritis are often unable to attend more traditional camps, which do not have the facilities, specialized health care staff, or the modified activities to accommodate their abilities. 

Camping together with a common condition means that children feel understood and accepted. It allows them to be defined not by their disease, but by who they are. In addition to barrier-free, traditional camp activities, Arthritis Society camps provide important tools and resources related to positive self-esteem and effective disease management, facilitated by experienced counselors. On-site medical staff ensure that campers’ health needs are met.  This page provides further information about our camps located across the country.
