Summer Programs

The RAFT provides access to FREE, summer recreational programs for youth | gym, art, social activities and more!


In partnership with Niagara Regional Housing and Canadian Tire Jumpstart, the RAFT became the coordinator of summer programming.

These programs give the youth an opportunity to access free recreational activities during the summer that their families may not have had access to otherwise.

The summer programs provide a nutritious snack to youth who attend as well youth are able to participate in a number of activities each day. Some of these activities include gym games, skills development, arts and crafts, social recreation, special outings, theme days and much more.
