Summer of Discovery !
Respite weeks are available weekly, year round, and are divided into 7 day blocks, starting every Sunday. Participants enjoy an away camp experience, with the comforts of home. Participants take part in recreation, leisure and social activities. Participants are assessed on their abilities to make informed choices, share space and share resources. They share space and resources with one other person in a 2:1 participant to staff ratio. Food, travel and activity fees included.
The program operates out of our NextStep Clubhouse, located at 1105 College Street, Toronto, Ontario. Our NextSTEP Club House is within 10 minutes walking distance from a subway station, library, gym, mall, park, and is surrounded by local restaurants, shops and stores. The neighbourhood also hosts a great selection of recreation and leisure activities, including: art therapy, music therapy, outdoor skating/basketball, karaoke, billiards and games.
