Camp Lifeline

Camps for ill children can help improve their connections to family, competence, independence, and emotional well-being. These positive impacts on children’s lives correlate with their need for social re-integration, peer acceptance and social support.

CAMP LIFELINE..A SAFE HAVEN FOR KIDS WITH FRAGILE IMMUNE SYSTEMS AND COMPLEX MEDICAL NEEDS.

Camp Lifeline is a Chai Lifeline Canada program born out of a recognized need for local specialized daytime programming for clients who could not attend regular summer camps due to complex medical needs or due to an increased risk of contracting infection.

For two weeks a year, Camp Lifeline provides a unique camping experience filled with much needed opportunities to play, laugh and grow in a supportive environment tailored specifically for them. With increased infection control measures, one-to-one staffing and onsite medical supervision- campers aged 4-7 years old are provided with the chance to create long lasting childhood memories and generate meaningful community experiences in the summer along with their siblings and peers.

In keeping with Chai lifeline Canada’s mission to improve the quality of life of children with serious medical conditions and their families; with each day planned Camp Lifeline strives to deliver a healthy dose of fun!

"Thank you!!

Thank you for a FUNtastic summer! And even more importantly, Thank you for dulling the edge of the pain and for helping seven year old boys see their brother not as a source of pain and disruption, but as the reason for the sparkle and joy in their summer!"
