Camp Massawippi has officially inaugurated its brand new, fully adapted Habilitas Foundation Dining Hall, which was made possible by generous donations from a number of foundations, corporations and private donors.
The camp is Quebec’s only bilingual camp and caters specifically to those living with physical, motor or visual impairments, in an adapted and accessible environment.
Executive Director, Clea Corman, said, “camp is sort of like a beautiful puzzle, where we have our campers, our staff and our partners. If we’re missing any of these pieces, we don’t have a camp, so altogether it’s a beautiful mission.”
The new dining hall features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Lake Massawippi, a modernized kitchen, fully renovated accessible washrooms, enhanced sound technology for hearing aids and cochlear implants, and wheelchair access throughout, among other improvements.
