Camp for kids living with FASD

Camp for kids living with FASD

We know that the summer break can be a challenge for families living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, so the Encompass Program at Carizon created a camp that supports the kids and helps the parents to relax, knowing that their children are in good hands. Our trained professionals have the skills, experience and expertise to provide a specialized camp that is safe, therapeutic and fun.

The camp provides opportunities for children ages 8-12 to experience indoor and outdoor play, creativity, and skill development.

July 27 – 31, and August 24-28.

For more information, parents can check out the camp flyer via the link below.

Your Children’s Mental Health Week

One in five Canadian children and youth have a treatable mental health issue. The stigma forces many to suffer in silence. Join us as we talk about mental health and break that silence. The free children’s mental health series is presented by Carizon, KW Counselling, Langs and Lutherwood. Also, join more than 15 Waterloo Region agencies to learn more about the variety of services for children, youth and parents struggling with mental health.

During National Volunteer Week, U of W profiles Carizon volunteer

As part of the #UWCommunity National Volunteer week series, the University of Waterloo is profiling its members who give their time and talent by volunteering in our community. Cristy Aponte, a Carizon volunteer is one of those students. Cristy is incredibly inspiring. She is currently gearing up to start her Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) this September at Waterloo’s Renison University College after just completing her honors undergraduate degree in the Social Development Studies program last Saturday. Cristy came to Canada 7 years ago from Colombia as a refugee and uses her background to help mentor, support, and teach a range of skills to new immigrants in our Waterloo Region community.
