Children's Summer Camp

This summer we will be hosting a wide range of interactive, week-long summer camps for children ages 6-12 at two agency locations, Summerside in the south-east and Westbrook in the south-west. All camps include aspects of the Kids with Confidence Social Skills Curriculum to encourage the development of social-emotional skills. Children will learn important life skills and make lifelong connections through fun and challenging activities, games and socializing. Camp leaders will create an engaging and supportive environment that will help children to build self-esteem and relationships with others.

Free before and after-camp care is available from 8:30 – 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. Children must bring their own (nut free) lunch and snacks from home.

We know that COVID-19 has made life difficult for families and this is one way we are hoping to help provide joy and social interaction for the children and families in our community. These days out will have a variety of fun outdoor and indoor activities including movement, creativity, self-expression, exploration and so much more. We will provide children with some fun time out and support them to develop their social and emotional skills. Any day will be fun and engaging, so choose the Wednesday that works best for you 

Children must bring their own lunch and healthy snacks (nut-free) from home.
