Summer Programming

The summer enrichment camp has been designed specifically for students entering grades 2 to 6 in September with a diagnosed or suspected learning disability. We are unable to support children with significant behavioural support needs.

This strength-based camp focuses on social opportunities, preventing summer learning loss, and filling in gaps in literacy and numeracy in a safe and fun setting. This camp is facilitated by an Ontario-certified teacher with training in learning disabilities and supported by other trained staff providing a 1:4 ratio. Please visit our FAQ
