Summer Camp 2019: New Opportunities for Celebration, Growth, and Emotional Processing

Every year, our Children & Youth team run an eight week long summer camp for children aged 4 – 12. Our summer camp makes it possible for children from low-income families to play, explore, and create memories by adventuring throughout Toronto.
