Summer Days

We've been having a wonderful time with our summer support workers through July and now into August.  James, Eve, and Brittany have been working with many of our clients and assisting at our ASD/REC events as well.  They've demonstrated enthusiasm, creativity, and patience and we feel very fortunate indeed to have had them with us this summer. 

We've just returned from our first camping trip at the KOA Niagara Falls.  We went at a great time of year, had lots of fun on the awesome bouncy pillow and, as one of our clients often observed, did really well trying lots of things we'd never done before!


Happy Spring!

Wow! It seems like only yesterday that we were at Fallsview Indoor Water Park back at the start of January! Since then, we've been busy with our favourite activities (bowling, lazer tag, taking in a movie) and have also enjoyed a trip to the Royal Ontario Museum thanks to the Tim Hortons' Courtesy Bus Programme, enjoyed a GPS scavenger hunt at the Royal Botanical Gardens, and lots of hot chocolates and conversation on Concession Street!

Through the winter months, the staff at Hamilton & District Extend-A-Family have also been busy planning for summer programming. As usual, we have applied for funding for two summer students and would love to hear what kind of support your family would find most helpful during the summer months. What has worked well for you in the past? What do you think your child or children need now that they're getting a bit older? As always, feel free to give us a shout at the office, send an e-mail, or join the Summer Support discussion on our Facebook page. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
