Summer Family Support Programs

To support students in their goal in achieving academic success, the Summer Aboriginal Education Programs has developed a number of daily activities for families of our students:

Youth Experience Program: Summer 2019

The Youth Experience Program is a series of week long learning experiences for children aged 3 to 8 years of age. Each week, youth will engage in a series of exciting learning activities designed to keep your child engaged and entertained while attending classes. Field trips to local attractions (Lake Nipissing beaches, museums, etc.) are included throughout the activities. All weekly activities will include days at the beach, various water play/activities, and daily hikes.

We ask parents/guardians to ensure that their children arrive at the Youth Experience Program with appropriate clothing and other items for the planned activities. This will include sneakers, bathing suits, towels, hats, and sunscreen. Please remember to pack a daily lunch and snacks for your child.

Parents can drop their children off starting at 8:00 am and children must be picked up by 6:00 pm daily (Monday-Friday). Please note that Monday, August 5th is a holiday and there is no Youth Experience Program running on this day.
