Hearts in Action Summer Camps

2021 AdaptAbilities Summer Camps Are a Go!

Parents: It’s Time to Register!

AdaptAbilities summer camps create amazing possibilities for the best summer, ever!

While we nurture belonging, exploration and fun, providing a safe camp experience is our priority. We are making plans for different camp formats in order to provide the best summer camp experience possible.

Parents: we appreciate your support by registering now to indicate your preferred format and dates you need.

Our summer camps will be dependent on current public health orders at the time. We will confirm your summer camp format in June.

Together, we will make the very best 2021 summer camp season! 

HIA 2021 Camp Formats:




If possible, we will hold small in-person camps at various community locations throughout Edmonton.

Camp Hours: 9 am – 3 pm
Before and after care is available from 7:30 – 9:00 am and 3 – 6 pm.

This camp format includes your own camp counsellor at your house! Campers will receive their own activity kit for each camp week which will inspire hours of playtime and fun projects.  Your staff will carefully plan safe time in the community each day, if possible.

To create connection with other campers, we will also have fun in daily online group activities like scavenger hunts, karaoke competitions, relay races, dance parties and more.





Participants attend a community camp of their choosing with the dedicated support of an AdaptAbilities staff member. We are proud to partner with the City of Edmonton on our Inclusion Camps, but we will happily match an AdaptAbilities staff member with your child in any camp of your choosing. 


We will finalize camp details based on registration numbers and health restrictions and confirm your camp format by June 1. If your preferred camp format cannot be offered, we will do our best to provide you a spot in a different camp format.

Flexible Cancellation Policy:
Due to Covid restrictions or low registration, we reserve the right cancel certain camps. Deposits are refundable for Covid-related issues this year.

Cost: Complete your registration by making a $100 deposit to be applied to program fees or your parent portion fees.
