Please be advised of the following Program Delivery Changes:
In 2018, The Leisure Services Division of the City of Greater Sudbury undertook a review of its Child and Youth Program offerings to consider accessibility, affordability, maximizing use of existing leisure facilities, and how programs address population health issues related to children and youth. The following changes are being implemented for 2019:
Through the 2019 budget process, a business case was approved, regarding a change in the operation of Camp Wassakwa in Walden. Over the past number of years, participation figures dropped significantly due to other program offerings in the area. In order to continue to utilize this valuable city asset, the decision was approved to develop a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a third party to deliver child and youth programming at this location. At such time as the RFP is awarded, more information will be provided to direct interested citizens to the new provider.
Integrated Playground Program
Through the 2019 Budget process, a business case was approved, regarding a change in the operation of the Integrated Playground Program. In order to provide a higher level of expertise for this special population, the Integrated Playground program will be offered through Child and Community Resources. This is the same community partner the City of Greater Sudbury has provided the Developmental Summer Program through, for the past 8 years. Details of the 2019 registration process will be provided in the coming weeks. Past participants in this program will be contacted directly to ensure ease of transition.
Day camps operated by the City of Greater Sudbury introduce children to a variety of outdoor activities. Camp leaders provide a quality outdoor experience designed to help children develop an awareness and appreciation of the natural environment. Age appropriate activities are offered in a safe and controlled setting.
