PA Days for Kids

A child living with serious illness in the family faces unique challenges.  A household can be in turmoil and parents/caregivers can sometimes feel that they are unable to give kids enough attention because of other immediate priorities.

Wellwood offers free single-day "camps" on PA Days (scheduled according to the local school boards).  This is a place where children can come and just "be kids" -- have fun and get silly in a safe and normalized environment.  The focus of our camp days is FUN (!) with a variety of different activities, from environmental and eco-friendly crafts. to meditation, yoga or running games.  The day follows a similar format to our Kids in the Kitchen/Power Up program, with cooking opportunities, art, fun and movement that facilitates making and meeting new friends who are in similar circumstances at home.  Lunch and snacks provided.

Registration is required.  Contact Norma Frankoff at 905-667-8870.
