Camp Tidnish Revitalization!

by / Monday, 08 November 2010 / Published in Featured

Easter Seals Nova Scotia made a commitment to their campers and clients in October 2009 to raise $200,000 towards revitalizing Camp Tidnish to meet the growing needs of the campers.

 Due to the generous donations from the Corporations, Foundations, and Service Clubs listed below we have raised $93,200 and have made many necessary improvements at camp including: the re-painting of all cabins and main lodge, new mattresses, bedding and linens for all cabins, new flooring, new chairs, a couch, bean bag chairs and a big screen TV for the common areas, as well as an abundance of craft supplies, games and ipod docs.

Says a camper about this year’s improvements:  “I would like to thank all the individuals who came together and helped with all the improvements this summer. The Beehive had a lot more to offer this year, which was great, like bowling table, air hockey, beanbag chairs, furniture and the Wii.”

Easter Seals Nova Scotia will continue to fundraise and implement improvements at Camp Tidnish until Spring 2011 with the goals of replacing wooden ramps, windows, beds, and equipment for new program areas (including music & drama program and animal therapy program).

About Camp Tidnish

Since 1958, Camp Tidnish has been providing Nova Scotians with disabilities a unique, fun, safe and rewarding camp experience. Each summer up to 300 campers stay at the fully accessible camp to enjoy a summer vacation filled with excitement, games, and laughter. Campers will often come home having learned new skills, developed greater self-confidence, made new friends, and achieved greater independence through their experiences at camp.
