Camp Alohi Lani, which means “Bright Sky” in Hawaiian, was piloted in 2011 to support children who have a parent (or grandparent in a significant role) living with ALS. It is designed to provide a supportive and educational weekend outdoor camp, counselling and recreational therapy to help young participants on their ALS journey.
The camp is a safe setting supervised by trained counsellors where youth, aged eight to17, can come together to make new friends, challenge themselves, learn new skills and spend time in the great outdoors. It offers a respite where kids can be kids.
The next camp will be held on August 23rd to 27th, 2019, at Camp Jubilee in Port Moody.
