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 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.

>>> Registration will open March 1st, 2018 at 12:00pm. <<<
