Join us for CTN's Summer Park Events

Join us for Mornings at the Park this Month
In partnership with the York Catholic District School Board, CTN is hosting a drop-in program that provides an inclusive environment for children to participate in playground activities. It is  facilitated by a physiotherapist and offers a range of integrated activities to help children  access the playground. Parents and caregivers will leave with  individualized strategies to help increase opportunities for physical activity, have fun and make memories. Siblings are welcome!

Special Needs Parenting: Tips for Camp Success
For kids with special needs, camp is a great place for kids to experience opportunities to develop gross and fine motor skills, social communication and make new friends. Most importantly, camp is FUN! Encouraging time outdoors, playing away from screens and engaging with peers improves a child's overall quality of life and sets him or her up for success.

This events calendar features events hosted by CTN, our partner organizations and other local organizations that we thought may be of interest to your family. New events are added to our network calendar each week! Check out the upcoming dates for family fun, inclusive recreation programs, camp and parent workshops, and coffee chats.
