Child & Youth Empowerment Camp

Child & Youth Empowerment Camp

Presented by Shaw Communications

This free camp, offered during spring break and summer, offers youth group counselling in a safe, supportive environment. With a slogan of “I am Strong,” it helps empower kids aged six to 18 by promoting:

  • Positive coping strategies
  • Development of friendship/social skills,
  • An understanding of personal and public safety
  • Emotional self-regulation

Many of the children have experienced migration-related trauma or acculturation stress, have experienced or witnessed abuse, or have a mental health diagnosis. The participants can share their experiences, identify and talk about their feelings, improve their self-esteem, enhance communication and conflict resolution skills, and realize that they are not alone.

The camp is facilitated by counsellors from the following DIVERSEcity counselling programs: Stopping the Violence, Children Who Witness Abuse, Child & Youth Mental Health, Substance Use Counselling and Family Counselling.

The Delta and Surrey Police and Fire Departments have partnered with DIVERSEcity and they help educate the participants to enhance their understanding about the impact of abuse, street violence, and bullying at schools.

The camps are free and space is limited.
