About Camp Amicus

Camp Amicus offers a unique camp experience for children and youth (9 - 16) with learning disabilities and ADHD as their primary diagnosis. The camp promotes opportunities for social skill development, building self-esteem and self-confidence while having fun in a caring and supportive setting.

Offering a 3:1 camper to counselor ratio, specially trained counselors lead campers in fun activities like swimming, low ropes course, archery, horseback riding, rock climbing, games, hiking and much more! Each day there is also a 45 minutes social skills lesson and reinforcing activities. Campers are encouraged to challenge and develop their abilities in all the activities offered. A separate day camp program is offered in Calgary. Please note that this is not a behavior management camp and does not accept children with major behavior or emotional regulation difficulties.
