For the past 6 years, Lakeland Centre for FASD (LCFASD) has hosted summer camps specifically for kids with FASD. We are big fans of the work they do and have posted about their camps several times before. The camp employs FASD educated staff and provides children and teens with a safe environment in which they can  gain social skills and daily living skills while having fun outdoors.

This year, in order to raise funds to build a new camp, 3 staff from the LCFASD will be participating in a “Survivor” competition in which they must complete challenges and battle the elements. Funds raised will go to the LCFASD summer camp. Survivor Lakeland is hoping to raise a minimum of $20000 for the organization. You can read a recent news article posted by the Cold Lake Sun on the competition and the LCFASD’s involvement or visit the Survivor Lakeland webpage to learn more about the competition and donate to the contestants (FYI Lakeland’s contestants are Tracey Knowlton, Tessa Mark and Tabrina Stenz).

LCFASD is also partnering with rainbarrel.ca to sell rain barrels to homes in the surrounding area in order to raise money. You can read more and order a rain barrel online to help them out.

If you are interested in registering your child for this year’s Lakeland Centre for FASD summer camp, the registration form can be found here.
