Seven families and young adults joined our Family Weekend Camp which was held from September 23rd to 25th 2022, at the breath-taking location Camp Jubilee, located in the Indian Arm near Deep Cove, British Columbia. It was a great weekend with full of love, fun & memories shared. The participants enjoyed the activities of Archery, Beach Study, Team Building, Canoeing, Campfire, movie night and a talent show. The camp experience helped the children and young adults to discover more about themselves, boost confidence, find value in their own lives, feel included in who they are and most importantly mingle with new interactions and friendships.
December 2022: A Christmas party is being planned. Details will be shared as soon as they are available!
