Challenge

Within our client communities, there is a high level of fractured households, crime and poverty, which results in a huge amount of wasted potential in the form of talented children who are not able to access quality education. Additionally, the link between undiagnosed learning difficulties, school dropout rates and crime is well documented. CTF aims to bridge this educational disconnect through its Preschool, Homework Centre, Vacation Camp, Service Learning Program and Parent Education.

Solution

Since 2000 CTF' has provided camps for children between the ages of 3 yrs. and 12 yrs. Registration over the years has reached 125 Campers in 2016. 132 in 2017 and 102 in 2018. The camp offers a fun-filled, safe and stimulating environment that reinforces key academic concepts specifically tailored to each child's functional level. The camp seeks to build essential life, literacy and numeracy skills necessary for the successful functioning of children.

Long-Term Impact

One key benefit of attending vacation camp is halting what is typically known as the "summer learning slide" i.e. the ability for non-stimulated children to forget up to 2.6 months of material learned in the previous school year. To mitigate this loss of knowledge, the Camp day is structured on a "work and play" approach. Morning sessions introduce the campers to the curriculum for the class they will enter in the new school year. Afternoon incl. skills-development, creative and movement.
