The South Etobicoke Youth Assembly (SEYA) is located at LAMP Community Health Center. It was founded in 2000 by youth in the Lakeshore area who wished to tackle issues that they were facing. There was a lack of recreational and arts programs, and they wanted to bring this to the attention of politicians. Together, they formed SEYA and brought these up these issues at general meetings and they were able to achieve their original goal. Today, SEYA provides free workshops and programs for youth in the community to develop leadership and various other skills.
The summer camp runs for two weeks, one in July and one in August, for youth ages 13-21. The camp runs from 12:00pm-4:30pm, lunch and bus tickets are provided for the campers. The camp is located at Second Street Junior Middle School.
Camp activities include workshops, sports and games. Campers learn to cooperate throughout the various activities and build relationships along the way. There is a field trip at the end of each camp, and the campers receive certificates for their participation.
