Campbell River Spirit Square

Provincial gaming revenue helps build Spirit Square

Spirit Square

For complex care residents at the Yucalta Lodge, Campbell River’s Spirit Square is more than just a gathering place. It’s a hub of community, where all ages and abilities come together. Once a week in the summer, residents board a bus to the downtown attraction, where they meet friends and family and participate in a way that’s not always possible due to their complex needs.

“Actually being able to go out into your community and to be a part of that community – that’s really something,” said Joanne Amberson, Recreation Supervisor at Yucalta Lodge. “It’s very, very important to our residents and their wellbeing.” The Spirit Square was built thanks to more than $1 million of the City’s share of provincial gaming revenue generated at Chances Campbell River.
