Since November 2012 - Children at Risk has been offering Saturday Fun Club Activity/Respite Sessions on Saturdays. We are opening up Registration for Fun Club to all families. If your child has attended Camp Kaleidoscope in 2019, an intake will not be necessary. However, if your child is new to Children at Risk and/or attended Camp in 2011-2018 - we would require an intake.
Utilizing management and counsellors from Children At Risk’s Camp Kaleidoscope, we used many of the activities that proved so successful at Camp. Each Fun Club session runs for 5 hours, 10 AM to 3 PM, for children and youth aged 4 to 18+ years of age. SFC will not be exactly like summer camp, but with adequate and qualified support staff, your child/youth will have five hours of fun and creativity with peers. Organized activities will include but not limited to: Mad Science, Crafts, Computer Games, Gym Circuits, can turn Saturdays into the best day of the week! As at Camp, as well, activities will align with ability - allowing older participants to influence the content to have the best experience.
Ten Saturdays have been arranged for the Winter Session from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sessions cost $150+ to offer per child, but with donations & fundraising, we can offer each session at $90 in advance to secure the dates offered to you. No additional subsidizes are available. A current Children at Risk Membership ($40 per annum up to December 31, 2019 - $50 per annum January 1, 2020) with Pro-Rating to next January 1st date - will also be required for Insurance Liability purposes.
How many Saturdays each participant can be guaranteed will depend on the demand within the three age ranges – 4 to 8, 9 to 12 and 13 to 18 years of age. These ranges aren’t fixed as participants will be grouped according to their best fit. As per the Registration Form, you can ask for some or all of the dates and we will confirm what we can offer once all the Registrations have been received and we can balance out each date with a mix of younger, older and level of needs corresponding to staff available. Spots are limited with only being able to accommodate 50 children.
Please complete the Fun Club Registration by the Google Link ASAP.
(Note that due to the Location, Environment and availability of appropriate staff, we may not be able to accommodate some of our more challenged ASD youth that have had success at our Summer Camp.)
Finally we are able to announce 2 of Children at Risk’s 2020 Winter Programs – Saturday Fun Club and Family Fun Night.
(Look SOON for our **NEW** “Out & About” Group for Asperger and High-Functioning Autism ASD Teens)
Once again, we have On-Line Registrations! Payments still must be done manually for now - but may soon also be available On-Line. We assure Families that their Information is secure with their Entries going to a PassWord Protected Google Drive. This method of Registration will hopefully be easier for many and will help to streamline administration in our Offices, as well. IF your technology or experience with On-Line Registrations presents a problem for you – please call our Offices at 613-741-8255 and we will work with you to complete the Registration. As long as we do not fill up fast - Registrations will be taken up to January 11th to guarantee a spot for the 1st Fun Club date of January 18, 2020.
