Description

In the late 1950's, it was evident that there was a need for a recreational facility for people with disabilities. The Kiwanis Club of South Edmonton strongly supported the concept and spearheaded the project. A committee of Kiwanis members consisting of Bob Sewell, Dr. Ken Gordon, Walter Bates and Norm McBeth was formed to select a permanent site and to establish a camp especially suited to meet the needs of children with mental and physical disabilities.



In 1959, these committee members approached the Provincial Government with their project. It was approved in principle, and the Government directed them to a 107acre parcel of property located on Lake Isle that was accessible by boat only. This site was selected, and lease arrangements with the Department of Lands and Forests was drawn up.



A plan was developed to attract other groups that were involved in work with people with disabilities to join in the effort to achieve the goal of the Kiwanis Club. The Alberta Council consisted of representatives from the Kiwanis Club of South Edmonton, the Associated Canadian Travelers Club of Edmonton, the Diabetic Association, and the Edmonton Cerebral Palsy Association. These organizations contributed varying amounts of money to get the project started, and with donation of buildings from Imperial Oil Ltd. and the construction of a Medical Centre by Mr. & Mrs. Muttart, the Camp commenced operation in 1960.



The Camp became an instant success! Today Camp He Ho Ha provides recreational opportunities not only for children with disabilities, but also for adults of all ages with every type and degree of disabilities.
