Groups & Workshops for Young People

Temper Tamer Group (age 7 to 11)

“Temper Tamers” is a virtual group for children between the ages of 7 and 11 and their caregivers which assists with concerns about anger, aggression and hostility in the family.

Is TEMPER ruining your family fun?

Is TEMPER causing you, your child or others problems?

Do you and your child want to be “in charge” of TEMPER instead of TEMPER being “in charge” of you?

If you answered YES to these questions, you may be interested in signing up for the 8 week Virtual Temper Taming Group.

Space is limited!

All families receive an activity box with fun weekly projects.

Starting: January 12 to March 2, 2022

G.I.R.L.S. Power Camp program has been offering a unique 3-day camp experience focused on Growth, Independence, Respect, Leadership and Self-esteem in partnership with Haldimand & Norfolk Women’s Services, Haldimand-Norfolk REACH, and Norfolk County.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty it brings, we have decided to offer our Virtual Camp in a box again. It’s not feasible for us to run an in-person camp at a half capacity, so we will play it safe and go virtual again for this year’s grade 8’s.

G.I.R.L.S. Power Camp November 2021 - Virtual Camp in Box

Virtual Camp in a Box is BACK and we have made some changes. When you register for your G.I.R.L.S. Power Camp in a Box, you will also be prompted to select which live virtual sessions you would like to sign up for. You can select none, the ones that pique your interest, or all of them! This is to better help us plan the live sessions and know how large our audience will be…

Virtual sessions will be spaced out this year, taking place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm - 8pm.

REGISTER FOR G.I.R.L.S. Power Camp, November 2021

A follow-up to the virtual program held in the spring, the Haldimand-Norfolk G.I.R.L.S. Power Camp returns this November 2021 with a second edition virtual program in November.

Registration will be open in October, exclusive to Grade 8 girls attending an elementary school in Haldimand-Norfolk. Starting November 30th we will be offering two virtual sessions per week, wrapping up on December 16th.

Registered participants can join us online for interactive sessions, discussion groups, activities and have access to pre-recorded videos on topics that relate to camp.
