The Agur Lake Camp Society has received a $36,000 provincial gaming grant for direct services to its guests.
The grant funding was presented to the camp in Penticton on Friday.
Beth Bonten, president of the camp society, said the money will be used for partial salaries for the office manager and an onsite supervisor, and for planning and scheduling at the camp.
In addition, there are plans to add a floating platform at the end of a dock, in order to accommodate more people at the water.
The camp, west of Summerland, is the only barrier-free camp in British Columbia.
It has had four seasons of operating with guests, and during that time, it has enabled children and adults with disabilities and special needs the opportunity to have experiences close to nature.
“We have more special needs adults than children,” Bonten said.
There are three cabins at the camp, which can sleep six people each. Last year, the camp was at 85 per cent capacity during its operating season.
