Camp at Home

The Camp at Home program series maintains our core values at the KOC as well as maintains the integrity of our primary program objectives. Programs will focus on strengthening family bonds through new or shared experiences, providing an increased sense of belonging, and getting a break from routine.  

There are four primary program streams currently offered in the Camp at Home series: 

  • Camp in a Box 
  • Online Respite
  • Family Programming
  • Youth Programming

The details about each program are outlined below. 

The Camp in a Box program provides families with instructions and necessary supplies needed to participate in a variety of unique activities. The box is shipped directly to your home via Canada Post. Once the box arrives, you may participate in the activities at any time and in any way you wish! Our hope is that you do it as a family, but the box would also be an excellent resource for a respite worker spending time with your family at home.

This program is currently unavailable. It is anticipated to relaunch in late 2021. 

 

Through this program, a KOC mentor and youth connect virtually on a routine basis to participate in pre-determined virtual activities. Through one-on-one connection, children and youth will develop a relationship based on mentorship through shared participation over a period of time. While we require a caregiver to be present in the household and available if needed, this opportunity is one in which you can rest assured your child is engaged in a productive online relationship. The cost is $25 per hour.

Space is limited. If the program is full, please join the waitlist.
