Special Thanks to…


A huge thank you ♥ to the 45 employees of Nielsen Canada who came to volunteer at Nova’s Ark for their Global Impact Day on Thurs., June 11.   

What a difference this wonderful group of volunteers made as they worked around the property, staining the new buildings and wheelchair swings, sealing the driveway, gardening and trimming trees.  Our special guests and visitors will really benefit from all of their hard work!



2015 Open House…another great day!

What a wonderful day!

Bad weather never stops Nova’s Ark!  And, even with the wind and rain our friends, guests and supporters came out to celebrate this year’s Annual Open House celebrating our 10th year as a charity.

Thank you!

Special thanks to Starr Burger, Workin’ Dawgs, Melanie Pringles and Durhamways Bus Lines for their amazing support at our Open House.

See you all next year on the last Sunday in May!

Camp Registration is Now Open!SUMMER CAMP 2015

Nova’s Ark offers opportunities for individuals with varied abilities to join our trained and confident youth leaders to explore the many interesting animals and activities located on our ten acre property during our Summer Camps. Each individual is connected with 3 to 5 youth volunteers who become the Circle of Friends which is key in assisting with their program needs. The focus continues to be on social and communication skills through exploration, sensory stimulation and structured interactive activities. These programs provide, key life skills development, physical involvement and respite time with weather appropriate activities.


Nova’s Ark would like to thank the Rexall Foundation for their very generous grant to our Friendship Camp Fund.  We are thrilled to announce that, this year, our Friendship Camp Fund is able to offer sixteen (16) individuals a one-week sponsorship to our 2015 Summer Camp and twenty-six (26) individuals two days each of Adventure Sundays.
