We are currently preparing multiple delivery options for our Summer 2021 programs, contingent on provincial COVID-19 Safety Guidelines. If necessary, this program may be adapted to a hybrid format (online + in-person component) OR be fully online. We will try our best to adapt listed activities for an online environment, but activities may be subject to change. If this program is adapted to a fully online format, participants will be sent program kits in the mail.
