This camp, in addition to a few, is directly linked to our organization, Focus on Youth. It accommodates one of the largest population of children within the entire camps apart of our organization. This camp allows the participants to receive mentoring, develop social skills, meet new people and most importantly, have fun!

This summer camp is divided into three groups: Arts, Sports and Leadership, which allows each student to focus on his or her own craft. The Focus on Youth staff at this centre are trained tremendously to mentor, guide and support the campers to the best of their abilities.  With patience, kindness and care, they aim to make the campers happy at the end of each day.

  2. I worked at Footsteps 2017 and it has been a very memorable experience for me. The layout of the camp is great for building a well rounded character in the kids and I can say it has been a pleasure working here! The programs, the trips, guest speakers even weekly trips to the pool made this summer wonderful and I hope the program at Footsteps Carr continues to prosper for the sake of the kids and building up a good community.
