Born from the idea of having a camp for families with special needs children, Agur Lake Camp advertises themselves as “barrier free wilderness camp”. Since 2004, ALC has provided exactly that to their clients; on land located on the shores of Agur Lake in the mountains west of Summerland, ALC offers accessible cabins and camping sites, a picnic pavilion and BBQ, trails and a dock for families with children with special needs. For more information on how to book a stay at the camp, please call the Agur Lake Camp office or email them at info@agurlakecamp.ca.

Therapeutic riding has psychological, social, and physical benefits. Though their summer riding program is full, now is a great time to inquire about the program and reserve a spot in the fall program. Please check their website for more information.

In an effort to give people with disabilities more recreational activities, the Access 2 program was created. The Access 2 Card allows people to receive free admission to participating attractions across Canada. In addition, the Access 2 Card aims to bring awareness of the challenges of having a disability to businesses in the hopes that they will be restructure their customer service in order to accommodate all persons wanting to enjoy their businesses.
