CAMP McGivney is back!
JMCC Summer Camps running July 5 - August 12
Windsor, ON: The John McGivney Children’s Centre (JMCC) is hosting a number of camps for children and youths aged 6 to 18 this summer.
Campers will participate in a variety of exciting and interesting activities such as crafts, nature exploration, recreation programs, talent shows and more.
“We are so excited that Camp McGivney is back! We transitioned to virtual camps last year, but we are very happy returning to in-person activities this year,” said Jessica Sartori, JMCC CEO. “It’s really important for our children to have that personal connection and interaction with one another, and to be able to learn, grow, and have fun together.”
The camps are staffed by camp counsellors that include students from University of Windsor Disability Studies & Psychology, Human Kinetics, Drama & Education and Social Work, and the St. Clair College Paramedic Program. “We are grateful for the Canada Summer Jobs grants program for supporting the hiring of our students”, added Sartori.
CAMP McGivney has been running for over 20 years, with approximately 600 participants from across Windsor-Essex.
