Summer Smiles

Camp provides a great opportunity for kids to learn new things, about the world and about themselves. More importantly, it’s a chance for them to have fun.

Many of the children we serve do not have a lot of opportunities for fun and recreation, but together we can change that!

Yet, now in year two of the COVID pandemic and just when children and youth supported by FACS most need this type of experience, there may not be any overnight camps and there could be some day camps in July or August 2021.

That’s why we developed a “Summer Smiles At Home” plan. “Summer Smiles at Home” means we will work together with Foster Parents, Kin and families in the extended care of FACS Niagara to try to emulate the Summer Smiles experience. We will also work with local day-camp providers — like the YMCA of Niagara — to provide COVID-19 safe, day camps.
