    Youth Summer Program – Early July to end of August

    Facilitated by our Children’s Witness Workers, the program focuses on a series of events including Youth Drop Ins once a week for kids 5-18. Activities include sports, games, water play, treasure hunts, tie-dye, and fun through learning about topics like science. Events for families will also run once a week and include activities like laser tag, berry picking, mini-putt, Saunders Country Critters, drumming lessons, and beach days. Clients attend with parent/guardian and are encouraged to bring along siblings and maybe even grandparents too.

    Events will take place in a variety of places in Brockville and surrounding areas. If transportation is problematic, such as families without vehicles, rural families, financial hardship or conflicting work schedules, please reach out and we will gladly assist you.

    Youth Drop Ins and Family Fun days are each happening once a week, starting July 5, with the final one being August 26.
