MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

What a fantastic year for Camp Liberté — and we have you to thank!

Once again, Camp Liberté was generously supported by dermatologists

and others in the dermatology community. Your donations made it

possible for us to offer two camp locations — Camp West (Bragg Creek,

Alberta) and Camp East (Lanaudière, Quebec). Children from across

Canada including Edmonton, Saskatoon, Ottawa, Montreal, and Guelph

joined us at our East and West locations to take part in this special camp

experience.

Camp Liberté celebrates its 10 th Anniversary in 2019 and we couldn’t be

more proud of how far we’ve come. The first-ever Camp Liberté was held

in August 7, 2009 in Lanaudière, Quebec with just 8 children. It took only

a few days before we knew this would be something very special. The

children connected with each other quickly, playing games, sharing stories

and signing songs by the campfire.

Over the years, many campers and parents alike have said that knowing

they aren’t in it alone, and the sense of belonging that comes from that,

is what they loved most about Camp Liberté.

Here’s to another 10 years of making dreams some true!

Dr. Danielle Marcoux, President Camp Liberté

2018 SUMMER CAMPS

Lanaudière QC

From August 5 –10, 2018 Camp Liberté

hosted 21 campers, aged 7–12 years,

on the grounds of Camp Papillon, a

40-acre compound on Lake Saint Pierre

in the Lanaudière region of Quebec.

Camp Papillon is part of the Quebec

Society for Disabled Children and is fully

equipped to meet both the recreational

and special needs of campers. Camp

Liberté benefited from the extraordinary

skills of Papillon’s expertly-trained

camp facilitators. Activities included

ziplining, crafts, swimming, archery,

fishing, aquatic games, overnight outdoor

camping, canoeing, and an animated

science experience (onsite visit).

Several Camp Papillon counselors

worked with the five-member medical

team consisting of one Board-Certified

Dermatologist (Dr. Danielle Marcoux),

two trainees (Drs. Laura Iglesisas-Girard

and Zhuo Ran Cai, both PGY-3 University

of Montréal) and two nurses (Isabelle

Lavoie and Claude Belleville).

Liberté welcomed 13 campers, aged

7 to 14 years. Located in beautiful

Kananaskis Country, Alberta,

outdoor adventure-based programs

for children and adults with

disabilities and medical conditions.

Activities included ziplining, crafts,

swimming, archery, water rafting,

aquatic games, overnight outdoor

camping, a campfire, a climbing

wall, and a giant swing.

Several Camp Horizon counselors

University of Toronto and Sabrina

10 YEARS OF

HAPPY CAMPERS


This

was the first time we were able to send our girls

to camp without worrying about them, knowing their skin

was being properly cared for. They both had an amazing

time and will have memories to treasure for the rest of

their lives. Thanks to everyone involved with Camp Liberté

— it truly has made a difference in the lives of my girls.
