Respite Programs

Are you looking for a recreation program for your child? The Enviros Respite Care Connection (RCC) program may be a good fit.
RCC offers after school, weekend and summer programs for children and youth between the ages of 6 and 17 who are both neurotypical and neurodiverse. All activities are held in the community and designed to provide both recreational and growth opportunities that are specific to your child’s developmental needs. This allows you to have a break from parenting while your child participates in positive, developmentally appropriate activities that are based on their interests.
Our respite care programs are offered on a fee-for-service basis and families must have involvement in Family Supports for Children with Disabilities (FSCD) or Post-Adoptive Supports. Contact us for more information on our programs or to register.

The community-based direction of the Respite Care Connection program:

  • Focuses on small group outings for children and youth who often have difficulty in community settings.
  • Offers a variety of activities that align with a child’s interests and abilities.
  • Recognizes the developmental needs of individuals within various age groups and develops age specific programming.

RCC specializes in strengthening children’s self-esteem, skill development and socialization skills through a fun and safe environment with a ratio of one staff to three children/youth.

RCC is based on the following five elements:

  • Social connection
  • New experiences
  • Lifeskills
  • Personal challenges
  • Learning opportunities

All Enviros staff are trained in safety, risk management, behaviour management techniques and Standard First Aid/CPR.
