Summer Programs and Respite
Respite Care Connection is a specialized program for children and youth with complex needs. Participants must have funding through FSCD, Post–Adoptive Supports or Child Intervention.
The program specializes in strengthening participants’ self–esteem, skill development and socialization skills in a fun and safe environment with a ratio of one staff to three youth. All staff are trained in safety, risk management, emotional regulation strategies and have Standard First Aid/CPR certifications.
Each day is filled with various activities including field trips, games and crafts. This may include biking, geocaching, disc golf, scavenger hunts, hot dog roasts, and activities in outdoor green spaces across the city.
We will also use recreation venues such as swimming pools, Calaway Park, the Calgary Zoo, Telus Spark, etc., if restrictions allow. This schedule may be modified depending on what restrictions are in place.
