Year-Round Programs

Building confidence, connection and community – all year-round!

Camp Kirk Community Weekends

CK Community Weekends provide neurodiverse kids and youth an opportunity to touch base with a supportive community throughout the school year. Through 3 touch-points in the year (once in the fall, winter, spring), groups meet for weekends of outdoor adventure programming to develop their skills, confidence and relationships.  

Who:  For the 2021/2022 school year, we will be hosting two groups of camper:

  • Group A – General Program, ages 8-17
  • Group B – Leadership program, ages 13-17

Where: Community Weekends are hosted YMCA Cedar Glen in Schomberg, ON, just 45 minutes outside of Toronto.

Learn about financial aid available for our programs

Camp Kirk offers a Financial Aid program to ensure our services and support are financially accessible. Any family is welcome to apply for our Financial aid program, and we work on a ‘pay-what-you-can’ model. 

How do I apply for Financial Aid?

1. Fill out an Application:

In the ‘Financial Aid’ section of the application, state what you can reasonably contribute towards progam fees. We work on an honour system, and do not require ‘proof-of-need’ documentation.

2. Camp Kirk will fundraise on your behalf:  

Our office staff works hard year-round to build our subsidy fund, and they will reach out to donors and community funders on your behalf.

In rare cases, we may have a funding opportunity that requires a direct application from a camper family. In these situations, we would aim to make the process as easy as possible- we would ask if you are interested in the funding opportunity, and our office staff would provide support to fill out the application. 

3. Fill out a year-end survey:

We ask families to help us with fundraising initiatives by filling out year-end surveys. Survey results and testimonials are used to report back to donors who supported our financial aid program. 

If you have any questions about Camp Kirk’s Financial Aid Program, please contact us.

 

Virtual Programs

Our Virtual Programs, known as Camp Kirk Clubs, provide a safe and supervised space for kids to have fun online. All our virtual programs are designed to encourage interaction and collaboration, so kids and youth can build friendships and social skills. Wherever you are, Camp Kirk Clubs make it possible to connect with a loving community.
