The Somali Canadian Cultural Society of Edmonton is a leading non profit and registered charity organization that is serving the needs of youth, seniors, and adults in Greater Edmonton. An organization that partners with agencies throughout Alberta to provide a unique, enriching camp experience to thousands of children each year who require financial, emotional or social support. The staff at SCCSE strives to empower children through many exciting group activities.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to make the wonder of a camp experience available to kids from all backgrounds. It’s an opportunity for them to gain positive memories that will last a lifetime. It’s a chance to learn about themselves and others in a camper-focused program.

Our Vision

Every child deserves the opportunity to play, have fun, and make friends in a safe camp environment. Our vision is that no child would be prevented from attending camp due to financial considerations. We are committed to helping as many children as possible participate in this unique opportunity.

Camp Toosoo is one of our core program we provide to our youth in the summertime.

Ten years later, as families look to Camp Toosoo to disconnect from the digital world and immerse themselves in the adventure and wonder of the wilderness, Camp Toosoo is still the best program in the summertime.

In 2007, the Camp Toosoo was founded by our youth. The name Toosoo is derived from the Somali language and that means that camp that puts your life back on track.
