Summer Children’s Program

The Summer Children’s Program (SCP) is offered for a period of 6 weeks during the summer, each year.  It supports families and children (aged 6 – 12 years) and summer students (for employment).

The program offers a wide variety of memorable experiences, a sense of community and lasting friendships.  Daily activities range from creative arts, cooking, science to sports and land-based and cultural teachings. 

The 2020 & 2021 Summer Children’s Programs were cancelled due to COVID-19. Please visit for more details about available childcare subsidies for the summer.
