Toronto School Board Summer Camp for children with physical disabilities
(The Special Life)
If you have a physically disabled child in a Toronto Public School, then right about now you should be receiving a form sent home asking if you're interested in the FREE summer camp.
The summer camp is held at Sunnyview Public School, which is on Blythwood Avenue, between Mount Pleasant and Bayview. (Blythwood runs east-west and is about mid-way between Lawrence and Eglinton)
The camp runs from 9 am to 3 pm.
As usual, there are two sessions available in July, with each session lasting two weeks. However, families are only allowed to use one session.
For 20009, the first session runs from: Thursday, July 2nd to Wednesday, July 15th.
The 2nd session runs from: Thursday, July 16th through to Wednesday July 29th
The program is described as being available to students with "moderate to severe disabilities" but they also say that they don't have resources for one-on-one for kids that also have "highly challenging behavioural needs".
The principal for the summer camp this year is Darryl Chiang, so all applications for summer camp should be forwarded to him.
For more information, contact: Darry Chiang, Principal J B Tyrrell Public School Sr., Route SW (416) 396-6362
