At Native Child and Family Services of Toronto, Summer Camp programs give Aboriginal children, families, and youth the opportunity to learn about their culture and have a positive sense of personal identity and belonging.
The camps provide a safe environment with trained camp counsellors. Staff is carefully chosen to act as positive role models for our campers. They are fully trained in First Aid and CPR and enthusiastically deliver dynamic programs to all camps.
Campers will learn a variety of cultural, recreational and leadership skills as they build confidence and make new friends!
Day camp programs will be offered on-the-land in alignment with the Government of Ontario, Toronto Public Health and Ontario Camps Association safety provisions. A guide will be provided to families in their welcome package with further details.
