Ready For Summer?

May 30, 2016

_K7A9396Summer is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to spend the days enjoying the sunshine with our community’s kids!  We’ve got nearly 20 summer camps and summer programs to keep Edmonton and area kids active and engaged over the break. Plus, we do our best to ensure that all of our programs foster self-confidence, create new opportunities, and help kids forge strong relationships.

Last summer, our Millwoods Welcome Centre summer camp took a field trip to Fort Edmonton Park. Many of the children had recently moved to Canada. One child in particular spoke up on the way back to the Centre and said to his friend “I had the best day ever. We’re the luckiest kids in the entire world!” This same young boy had started the camp quite shy and soft-spoken. Over the course of the summer, he blossomed into one of the leaders and became more confident and outspoken!

We hope to be able to share many more heartwarming stories like that over the summer! To view a full list of all of our registered and drop in programs during July and August, please click here. If you would like to volunteer, please click here.
