WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT

Christie Lake Kids serves economically disadvantaged children and youth by providing recreation and skill-building programs at no cost and with all barriers to participation removed. It is a registered charity (13278 4471 RR0001) located in Ottawa, Ontario.

Our mission is to enrich the lives and prospects of economically disadvantaged children, by providing quality year-round community and camp programs to develop physical, artistic, and social skills, positive attitudes and personal qualities.

Christie Lake Kids focuses on building skills as a pathway to enhancing protective factors in children and youth. By incorporating elements of a strength-based approach to healthy development,

 

Christie Lake Kids' programs demonstrate that learning new skills contributes to building developmental assets.

 

CHRISTIE LAKE KIDS PROGRAMS ARE BASED ON THE FOLLOWING BASIC PRINCIPLES:

  • All kids deserve a safe, healthy childhood.
  • All kids deserve the opportunity to learn, to achieve, and to succeed.
  • Teaching skills of all kinds not only builds those particular skills; it also builds self-esteem, social skills, and other positive qualities.
  • Children from low-income families deserve the same recreational and skill-development opportunities as other children.
  • Caring for children and youth is not just a private issue; it is a collective responsibility.
