In partnership with the Rotary Club of Amherst, Easter Seals Nova Scotia hosts and operates Camp Tidnish near Amherst, Nova Scotia. Camp Tidnish is a barrier-free and fully accessible summer camp for children, youth, and adults with physical and/or intellectual disabilities. Watch our Camp Tidnish video!

Camp Tidnish has provided top-quality programs for nearly 80 years. Each year, we host hundreds of campers from across Nova Scotia. Our programs are designed with inclusion, independence, and the personal development of our campers in mind.

Our professional and dedicated staff provides exceptional care and leadership. Our counsellor to camper ratio is small, and our team is trained to meet the diverse medical, mobility, personal care, and nutritional needs of our campers.

Our camp offers several interactive and fun overnight camp experiences including boat tours of the Tidnish River, hay rides, fishing, art activities, and swimming in our heated indoor pool. Camp Tidnish also provides campers an opportunity to forge friendships, and to enjoy the thrill of independence of being away from home!
