At Christie Lake Kids we believe the experience of growing up in poverty does not define a person or limit their potential. We build physical, social and character skills in children facing barriers associated with poverty through Transformative Recreation experiences.
Our year round programs in the city and at camp build resilience so that young people can be successful members of their communities.
This morning @unitedwayottawa revealed the Wall of Inspiration at City Hall. This wall celebrates amazing people who give back within our community. Last year, long time volunteer Coach Randy received the United Way Community Builder Award for his dedication to our hockey program and the kids we served, couldn’t be more grateful! 🙂 #ThisIsOttawa #UWCommunityBuilders #ourvolunteersarethebest #ottcity

Each of our programs is crafted to deliver elements of physical, social and character skill development. Physical Skills The development of fundamental motor skills, confidence in learned skills, and foundation for a healthy active lifestyle. Examples: learning to swim a front stroke, becoming a confident basketball player, developing confidence and interest to try out for a school sports team. Social Skills Developing the ability to create important relationships with peers and adults, communicating feelings and forming empathy for others. Examples: Making a new friend at camp, telling a volunteer they are frustrated, understanding how their actions affect another child in their STAR soccer program. Character Skills Forming a strong ability to identify and manage emotions, and development of skills and strategies to cope with future challenges and stress. Examples: Telling a volunteer they are angry after a game and expressing why, developing skills to stop and think before acting when stressed, being able to solve problems and set goals independently. #ottawalife #ottawakids #kidsarethefuture #ottcity #ottawacommunity #ottawa #christielakekids #ottawacharity
CLK measures skill development created through the Transformative Recreation® model using two evaluation tools. The first tool, the Transformative Recreation Skills Evaluation measures the specific development of types of physical, social and character (emotional) skills for each participant. This tool is filled out by program volunteers at the conclusion of a program cycle. The second tool, the Self-Concept Survey, is filled out by each child or youth at the end of a program cycle. This survey measures program effectiveness through the areas of program satisfaction, positive peer/adult relationships, self-efficacy, self-regulation, and positive future outlook. #ottawacharity #ottawakids #kidsarethefuture #ottawalife #ottcity #ottawacommunity #christielakekids
