Family Programs

Our Family Programs had another fantastic year! We continued several longstanding partnerships with Eastview Bowl, Can-Am Gymnastics and the YMCA. We also developed a new Strength Training program with the SK Weightlifting Association and Synergy Strength.

This added to our previous offering of Olympic Weightlifting. We were also pleased to welcome two new Music Therapists, Alanna and Sophia, to our agency. Thank you to Leanne Hoeft and Prelude Saskatoon for delivering such wonderful therapy to our kids! In the summer, we successfully delivered 7 weeks of full and half day camps to our autistic population. We were able to access so many amazing venues in the community. We also noticed how accommodating and adaptable several of these businesses have become now that they recognize the needs of our camps.

As we approach December, we can now look towards our annual Christmas events to add to the festivities! Thanks to Midtown and Lawson Heights Mall for offering a Sensory-Friendly meet and greet with Santa and to the Saskatoon Minor Hockey Association for hosting our “Skate with Santa” event! And as we approach the end of 2023 it is important to reflect on the successes, challenges and impacts of our programs. We are excited to start a new Tennis and Badminton Pilot Project in 2024. We are excited to adapt our programming to the various needs of our clientele, and we are excited to renew several of the partnerships that assist us in delivering such professional and passionate programs.
