About the Event

This peer support group is for grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. We meet in-person and virtually, this is an in-person session. Participation provides a connection to caregivers who are living a similar experience. The program provides opportunities to improve positive grandparenting skills and build caregiver-child attachment, as well as access to other community supports. Sessions are the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 12:30 to 2:00 PM typically, however times may vary due to the activities within each session.

For this session, we are going to have a fun, outdoor water adventure with Janneke Vorsteveld from Seeds Rooted in Youth! Grandparents and grandchildren are welcome to join us for a day outside of connecting and having fun during the summer at the splash pad! The grandchildren will have an opportunity to meet each other and play while the grandparents have their meeting. Snacks and drinks are provided! Please bring a lawn chair.

This program is provided free of charge due to funding from the Government of Canada. Registration is required to attend.
