Accessibility & Inclusion
The City of Welland in partnership with Community Living Welland Pelham are proud to present the 2018 Summer Camp Program. This partnership will enhance services to children who participate in the camp and provide quality programming for children with all abilities.
The Recreation & Culture Division programs are fully inclusive and welcome all children. Should your child require any extra support, please complete the personal information form provided and indicate this to a Customer Service Clerk. Furthermore, parents whose child requires additional supports and are connected to Community Living Welland Pelham, should contact their Community Living Family Support Coordinator.
The City of Welland does not provide one to one support. Campers may bring their own worker at no additional cost.
Staff are mature and responsible individuals selected for their special abilities and experience working with children. All staff participate in intensive pre-camp training. Many are enrolled in University or College and have experience working in schools, recreation centres or child care centres.
All staff are certified in First Aid, CPR & High Five trained.
Due to the severe allergies of other program participants, campers are not permitted to bring nut products to camp.
