All about camp:
Located on the shores of French Bay, the Lakeland Centre for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (LCFASD) hosts week-long overnight camps that give kids with FASD ages 7-17 the chance to have an unforgettable summer camp experience. The children at the camp can be themselves, meet other children who share their experiences and most importantly, they can have FUN!
