The Hudson Bay Summer Leisure Program is dedicated to providing summer leisure services to children and youth with special needs.  Since 2002, the Hudson Bay Summer Leisure Program has provided an opportunity for physical activities that help maintain and develop physical strength and abilities for children and youth with special needs.  It has also provided mental stimulation and challenge through activities such as going to the library, doing crafts, and playing games.  The children and youth involved with the program over the past years have benefited socially from their interactions with the staff, other children and youth in the community, and with adults in the community.  The Hudson Bay Summer Leisure Program is open to all children and youth ages three (3) to 19 with special needs in the Hudson Bay area.  Parents, siblings, and friends are also encouraged to participate in the program.

Program Objectives:

  1. To enable children and youth with special needs to access social and recreational activities and facilities in the Hudson Bay area.
  2. To provide a source of respite for parents of children and youth with special needs.
  3. To enhance services available to children and youth with special needs in the Hudson Bay area.
  4. To promote inclusion and integration of children and youth with special needs into existing summer recreational activities, programs, events, and facilities.
  5. To involve parents, siblings, and friends as volunteers in specific activities such as a picnic or birthday party.
