Summer Program and

Summer Vacation

Join us for themed daytime vacation weeks, or 5-day & 4-night adventures with person-centred, community-first coordinators.

Summer Program

A fun-filled, friend-making summer experience of swimming, outings, dancing, sports, arts and crafts, special guests and a variety of activities while also giving familes a break.

Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region Summer Program offers themed weeks for individuals with disabilities ages 13+. Activities accommodate a wide range of abilities ensuring that all participants have the opportunity to contribute.

We offer fun and interactive activities that draw on each week’s theme. Participants can choose from a selection of activities that appeal to them, while also enjoying weekly swimming, day trips and special guests.

Staff are trained and experienced young adults who are committed to providing a safe and fun-filled experience.

Summer Vacation

The Summer Vacation takes place at a scenic, rural camp and emphasizes time spent in nature enjoying the outdoors together.

Vacationers, aged 15+, create their own daily activities with the support of staff. The week is filled with music, swimming, games, campfires and self-made fun.

Vacationers will be living alongside a small number of peer vacationers, high school students without labeled disabilities, as well as the program staff/leaders.
