A team of Kinsmen braved the cold weather and pitched in their skill to build a (10 x 3) metre deck and a (1.5 x 23) metre wheel chair ramp at Easter Seals Camp Horizon Southwest of Bragg Creek September 27-28, 2014. The purpose was to build a structure that would allow wheel chair campers safe access to the Camp Horizon's Archery Range. Wheelchair campers can now access the archery range without any assistance, and can easily move about on the new Archery deck without bumping into each other. We hope that this deck and wheelchair ramp can be enjoyed by many campers for many years to come.
