Since 2001 Christie Refugee Welcome Centre has offered a Summer Camp for refugee families. The camp, located two hours northeast of Toronto, is offered for 1 week for children and parents of all ages. Participants stay in cabins, eat in the mess hall, swim, canoe, and participate in crafts, games and evening activities. It allows them to experience the Canadian landscape, learn new skills, participate in recreational activities, share experiences, reduce social isolation and build new friendships.
