AGREEMENT

PROGRAM DETAILS
SOS Summer Rec Program (SRP) is a drop-in day camp for all kids aged 6 (by August 31st, 2017) to 11, and for Junior Mentors aged 12 to 16. We are committed to providing a safe, fun, and wholesome environment for your child. We believe in respecting rules, ourselves, and others, as well as participating in a variety of activities that encourage movement and exercise social skills. The focus of SRP is to learn and teach each other how to treat one another with utmost respect. We encourage all participants (staff and campers) to grow in this learning and to share each other’s experiences, no matter their religion, race, culture, and creed. We strive to achieve a summer of creativity and making friends, and to foster in every child a sense of self-worth and high self-esteem. SRP will provide the parents and guardians with a calendar of activities. This will give you an overview of what we will be doing and our whereabouts, so you may be able to determine what your children will need to bring with them. Though this may change, we will give you ample warning so you may have enough time to prepare for the changes. We will always begin and end our day at the drop-off/pick-up location, but will be walking or taking public transit to and from locations throughout the city, depending on the activity for the day. SRP believes that the role of parenting lies with that child’s parent or guardian. The staff are known as Mentors, and takes that role seriously. We are not there to discipline your child but to nurture and care for them in a healthy and mature way. The Mentors act as a positive adult role model that guides and supports children by offering skills that will lead them to create solutions for themselves. We are trained in conflict resolution, building resiliency, first-aid, positive thinking, healthy relationship building, mindfulness, Mental Health First Aid, and other skills relating to building capacity for rational thinking. Rest assured, we will do what we can in giving your children the support they need, but will not hesitate to call you when their behaviour becomes inappropriate (sexual or violent) or extremely difficult to manage (overly defiant). We encourage parents and guardians to keep an open communication with the SRP staff, if you ever need support for your child. We are a helping agency and want to do the best we can to find the resources that you need, for you and your child. To see a copy of our full program manual and policies, please speak to one of the staff members.
