Get Involved

Rent the Lodge
Together we can make a difference in the lives of children and adults living with a disability and their families. Here is what you can do to get involved.

Waitlists for government assistance and respite support are forcing individuals and families into crisis, and driving parents into poverty and despair. An accessible vacation lodge like this offers families a glimmer of hope.   - Inclusion BC

Corporate teams, non-profit organizations, community groups, and individuals can book the lodge for a retreat. All proceeds ensure the lodge will remain available to those who need it most at no charge. Request a Booking
