Focus on Youth students are mindful of Andre’s positive vision. The students act as positive role models by using their skills and training to lead, supervise and relate to the youth. The leaders also bring forth a positive attitude that encourages a hospitable environment.

PROFILE: Recruit Access Youth Sports

The Recruit Access Youth Sports (R.A.Y.S) summer camp is a non-profit organization founded by Jason Weatherup on March of 2007. His goal was to open up an affordable camp for youth and children to keep them off the street. The camp focuses on sports and arts (dancing & acting) for boys and girls ages 4-13 years old.

This program gives participants a chance to interact with children from other communities. It also serves as a vital resource for students and their families as a way of supporting various social, emotional and physical needs through recreational programs. In addition, R.A.Y.S welcomes newcomers to Canada so that they can interact and make new friends while in a fun and safe environment.

All in all, the Recruit Access Youth Sports camp would be a great camp for any kids ages 4-13; especially if they enjoy sports and/or arts. Campers here always create new friendships and unforgettable experiences!
