It is with heavy hearts that we share the unfortunate news that the Looking Glass Summer Camp will be canceled for 2018. As did many of our fellow Canadian non-profit organizations, LGF experienced a decline in fundraising in 2017, leaving us with a limited operating budget for this calendar year. Because we take our financial responsibilities — to our Board, to our donors, and to our community — very seriously, we made this difficult decision. We do this with deep regret, as we know how much this camp means to our incredible camp team, and to the young women and their families whose lives it would so positively impact.
We look forward to resuming Summer Camp in 2019, and to sharing the joy of this experience again soon! In the meantime, we sincerely thank you for your support and understanding. If you have any questions about Summer Camp, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Looking Glass Summer Camp offers young women experiencing disordered eating an 8-day camp focusing on wellness, supportive nutrition, fun, and friendship - all in the spectacular setting of Loon Lake Forestry Camp in British Columbia.
Looking Glass partners with outdoor adventure specialists, Pinnacle Pursuits, to create a camp filled with adventure, fun, and many memorable experiences. Together, we offer a rich program of activities designed to inspire, educate, and transform – all while having fun and enjoying the company of new friends.
With camper safety and enjoyment being our highest concern, the Looking Glass Summer Camp staff includes a full complement of nurses, dietitians, and program coordinators. The ratio of trained staff to campers is exceptionally high, at approximately 1 staffer for every 3 campers.
The Looking Glass Summer Camp is geared to young women between the ages of 14 and 23 who are experiencing disordered eating, but are medically and psychiatrically stable.
While Summer Camp is not intended to directly treat or cure eating disorders, it does enable young women with disordered eating to challenge their belief systems through therapeutic adventures. It is a safe, supportive place to experience companionship with others and to explore leisure activity, fun-filled adventure, and sound nutrition. Campers gain the skills to live life beyond their eating disorder - and have described it as one of the best experiences of their lives.
