Camp Unity

What is Camp Unity?

Camp Unity is a summer camp that offers a supportive learning environment for children and youth 6–18 years old with or with like symptoms of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).

Camp Unity also offers a leadership camp for youth over the age of 13 with FASD.

Is the program
right for your
child?

Could your child/youth benefit from:

  • time away from you during the summer months;
  • an opportunity not to lose their academic abilities over the summer;
  • the chance to improve their social, emotional and behavioural well-being;
  • maintaining their social connections over the summer;
  • an opportunity to become a camp leader?

If so, Camp Unity and Friends Assisting and Supporting Development may be of interest.

The focus of Camp Unity is threefold.

  • The camp helps children and youth with FASD maintain their academic abilities over the summer.

In addition to the above, Friends Assisting and Supporting Development aims to help youth with FASD:

  • remain connected with peers all year;
  • gain new skills in areas such as public speaking and advocacy;
  • increase their self-confidence and level of enjoyment;
  • build on life and social skills; and
  • gain leadership skills as they assist with developing programs for Camp Unity and participate in Camp as a Leader.
