Camp Amicus Logo


Camp Amicus is a unique summer camp program designed specifically for children and youth with Learning Disabilities and/or ADHD. Our goal is to create a rewarding and successful summer camp for each child/youth. We provide a structured and supportive environment for children to learn social skills, build relationships and have fun! Mature, caring counsellors plan activities to ensure that campers build confidence and self-esteem while enjoying a true camp experience. We offer both overnight and day camp options.

Camp Amicus Overnight Camp for children/youth 9 – 16 is offered for children/youth at Goldeye Centre in Nordegg, AB. Transportation from Calgary and Red Deer is provided.


Camp Amicus Day Camp for children/youth 8 – 15 is offered in Calgary, based out of Foothills Academy.


NEW! POLARIS (Personal Opportunities for Leadership, Activities, Recreation, Inclusion and Social Skills) Teen Leadership Camp for 16 – 18 year olds is offered in Calgary, based out of Foothills Academy with a 2-night hiking trip.


NEW! Family Camp Weekend – Bring the whole family (ages 8+) to camp for the weekend and experience the joys of camp together.
