Day Camp Description

The Saint Columba House Community Engagement & Learning Day Camp is an affordable and bilingual day camp that caters to the specific needs of local families and the community of Pointe Saint Charles. The five week camp runs throughout the month of July and will focus on empowering children (aged 5-12) by teaching them valuable skills and encouraging them to learn about and get involved in their community. Fun, stimulating, educational and thought-provoking games and activities will provide children with a deeper understanding of how they can become an important part of their community, and how communities can work together to achieve change.

Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program will provide eight youth from the community (aged 14-16) with training, work and the opportunity to develop much needed transferrable leadership and employment skills that will allow them to flourish in the coming years.
