A new look for 2021!
This year the Summer Services Booklet for Children and Youth with Disabilities, also known as the Yellow Booklet, has been transformed to a new online format. We hope that everyone finds this website easy to navigate and that it helps you and your children to plan your summer fun! There is a wide range of non-profit and for-profit service providers and program options available to choose from. You can also apply for the services that CYSN sponsors here. No private information is kept on this site, so if you email a service provider or complete a fillable form through this website, it only goes to the contact you select. While the Yellow Booklet website is designed to ensure that all parents have equal access to program information in order to make informed decisions, we caution you that this list is not comprehensive. CYSN and Community Living Victoria have included those service providers who were already listed in the Yellow Booklet in previous years. However, if you know of other local summer service providers who are dedicated to inclusion and diversity of children and youth with disabilities, let them know about this site. They can ask to add a listing in future years.
We would like to acknowledge the historical contribution of Recreation Integration Victoria (RIV) to the Yellow Booklet and, in general, for their years of service dedicated to assisting persons with disabilities and their families in the Capital Region to navigate inclusive programming and accessible spaces. From 1996 to 2020, RIV coordinated this essential summer entertainment guide which highlighted unique, fun, accessible, inclusive and developmentally rewarding options for children and youth with disabilities with them in mind! Families have come to rely on the booklet as their first signal that spring and summer is on the way. RIV ended their services in March 2020 so Community Living Victoria was invited to oversee the online Yellow Booklet for years to come. We wish you a fabulous and healthy summer ahead!
