reachAbility was pleased to publicly thank our supporters and stakeholders for the Camp reachAbility program over the past four years.  The advertisement above, appeared in this past Saturday’s Chronicle Herald newspaper and we reprint it here, on our website, to further extend our gratitude for helping us deliver such an enriching and enjoyable program to so many.

It is also important that we take this opportunity to also reach out to you — our supporters, community and local business leaders — to again, remind you we are seeking partners to help us carry this program forward into 2015.

Camp reachAbility has wrapped up for another year! Thank you to all our staff, volunteers and campers for making 2014 our most memorable camp season yet.

Start dreaming about camp for next year by watching this short video featuring our camp in Paradise, Annapolis Valley. Thanks to Gwen and Courtney for taking some time to speak about their experiences as Camper Care Coordinator and Camp Director. Also thanks to Amy, our abilityGarden coordinator, for hosting such a fantastic workshop on sprouting seeds at the camp, which is some of the footage featured here.
