SMA Family Camp- a camp for families that have a member with SMA

Fun….that’s the word that firstly describes SMA Family Camp. The next words would be support, connections, growth and freedom. You may wonder why freedom would be included in the description. Simply put, it’s the freedom you feel when you are in a group setting, surrounded by people that truly “get” what your family life is like. You don’t have to explain anything, you can just let go and experience the joy of knowing that every activity is designed with inclusion for all, by people that know what SMA is, and are living it too.

Families come from across Canada, the USA and even beyond to join this unique experience. They take home memories that last a lifetime, and family friends in their back pocket that they contact year round. Come join the fun, even if you aren’t a “camping family” your needs can be accommodated, and you will be so glad you gave your family the amazing gift of this experience!
