Summer Camp 2014 – Another Wonderful Summer!

DSC_0352Thank you to everyone who believes and supports the Nova’s Ark 2014 Summer Camp.  We are so excited to see our weeks filling once again!  Our program is at maximum capacity for Weeks 1 through 6 with only a few slots open for Weeks 7 & 8.  So many unique experiences with new friends and old.   Memories to last a lifetime.

This summer, Nova’s Ark is pleased to provide mentorship as a Cooperative Education placement for students of both Humber and Durham Colleges.  These students are currently enrolled in Child and Youth Care Worker, Social Services and Early Childhood Education programs.  

What a great opportunity for our experienced Youth Leadership, our Facilitators and Inclusion Interpreter staff and college students to all interact and share their expertise together.  It is a win/win for all of our participants.

Nielsen Canada – Global Impact Day

pizap.com1404325976393145 volunteers from Nielsen Canada, Markham arrived on Thurs., June 12 to put their commitment to community into practice.  They spent a full day at Nova’s Ark, pulling weeds from our gardens, staining the carport, decks and fencing, and moving a large amount of mulch to prepare our new shelter for Summer Camp activities.  Such a wonderful group of hard working and caring people!

We are so grateful for all of the assistance we receive from our many supporters.  A sincere thank you to all the volunteers from Nielsen Canada.   Each of you makes a huge difference for the families and guests at Nova’s Ark.  

Variety Village Fitness Friends…Inclusion at it’s Finest

Fitness FriendsThank you to Variety Village for inviting Nova’s Ark to participate in their Fitness Friends event for the 5th year in a row.  

Over 600 special guests and their buddies enjoyed a day of inclusionary physical and interactive activities at Iroquois Park, sponsored by Variety Village and their partners.  We were happy to see many of our friends there who have visited Nova’s Ark through school visits and know and support our philosphy.  We all enjoyed our interaction with new and old friends from the  four different area School Boards.

Nova’s Ark is proud to be connected with so many teachers, educational assistants and parents that live and model inclusion at it’s fullest.  Looking forward to next year’s event!
