SUMMER FUN CAMP
Operates for 7 weeks between June 28th and August 13th 2021 Monday to Friday, from 9:00am to 3:00pm with the exception of civic and statutory holidays. Our camp focuses on providing opportunities for children and youth with developmental disabilities to practice social and communication skills while having fun. Campers are supported by four Children and Youth Support Workers (CYSW) and the number of campers is limited to a maximum of eight per week. Camp staff make every effort to accommodate children and youth such as adjusting the length of the day or week dependent upon need and/or allowing space for a camper to attend with a one-to-one worker if needed. Families who request services go through a screening process and then are offered camp space once we have determined that camp staff is able to provide the support required.  Initially, applicants are offered one week of camp, requests for additional weeks will be accommodated as program space and scheduling permits.

SUITABLE FOR:
Participants must be independent with mobility. Please note that camp staff are unable to complete lifts and transfers.

COST

$70/week ($56/ 4 day week) - if your family is facing substantial financial barriers please contact the Program Manager to review potential reduction of fees.
