Respite and Parent Training Opportunity

FREE Family Camp Get-Away

Late  winter 2016, Point in Time, Tri-County Community Support Services, and Kinark Outdoor Center worked together and obtained funds from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to deliver a free 3-day parent training program followed up by a weekend overnight respite opportunity (2 nights).

Over three years 150 families will be able to participate in this program!

The program is hosted at the Kinark Outdoor Center’s recreational camp. All meals and accommodation are provided. Siblings are welcome! After the Family visits the camp for the parent training portion of the training, respite opportunities will be provided to each family.

Shared family recreation, parent training, and respite are focal points of this initiative. Families are welcome to participate more than once over the three year period.

There is a lot of interest in this program!  We require consent for us to share information about your family, for the purpose of planning, among the three agencies; we also require basic family information as part of the registration process.

Please contact us at the Kinark Outdoor Center for more information or to fill out the consent and registration package by phone.
