tropicana-logo-orange-2010-300x100

Located at St. Barnabas Catholic School, campers can be seen having fun at the Tropicana Community Services  (TCS) camp. Tropicana Community Services was founded by Robert Brown approximately 37 years ago. He had the assistance with those who were immigrating from the Caribbean. The company’s name was formed from “tropi-” in Tropical and “-cana” from Canada, making the known name of Tropicana.

 

Here at TCS, their philosophy is that summer camps are not just about recreational activities but rather they should incorporate activities that teach useful life skills.  A great example of this is through their weekly Martial Art lessons that teach the campers self-defense skills in a fun way. The camp also go on weekly trips from the movie theatres, to the local splash pad, and more.

 

At the Tropicana Community Services camp it is always a fun and exciting time as they have different weekly themes in which the activities revolve around. TCS provides an amazing experience through its philosophy based on education and entertainment, as well as the welcoming staff ready to greet every camper.

 

This camp caters to every kid and helps promote a safe environment and play a meaningful role in developing a better tomorrow for these kids.

This allows them to learn comradery and teamwork skills that they would not be able to attain in an at home environment. They also benefit from a healthy active lifestyle and leadership mentorship from positive young role models.

Campers at the St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club are always full of enthusiasm and greatly reflect the energy of their camp counselors. It was great to see kids excited and immersed in sports such as rugby, one which not many campers had previously had the opportunity to try. The camp recognizes that kids love trying new things and take advantage of this thirst in their own backyards.

At the end of the day, the most important thing at St. Jude’s Youth Now On Track Summer Camp is the well being and happiness of each camper. Campers learn that their words and actions have a power that can be used to show kindness towards one another. This lesson is demonstrated beautifully by the role models placed at the camp who love to keep campers smiling!
