Visiting Camp Cassidy
Military and first responder families in the Atlantic Provinces generally have access to outdoor recreational venues, as many communities are in relatively close proximity to rural areas with forests, lakes, rivers, ocean shores, etc.
Military and first response families also have access to public facilities such as provincial and national parks, but it is on the same terms as provided to the general population i.e. there is generally no access to these facilities reserved solely for them. Further, provincial and national parks often charge various fees, which for some families can be cost-prohibitive, even with discounts, when considering the overall family budget.
By providing top notch wellness programs and outdoor recreation opportunities and facilities available solely for military and first response families at little or, preferably, no cost to them, Camp Cassidy will provide an important and rare opportunity to meet the unique needs of these special Canadians.
