BC Newcomer After-School Programs (virtual & on-site)
The British Columbia Newcomer Camp Association (BC Newcomer Camp) is a Canadian registered charity that operates free programming for recently arrived refugee children and youth and have been operating summer camps for the last 4 summers and growing steadily each year. This year, due to Covid-19, BC Newcomer Camp pivoted programming to an online curriculum providing English language education, online games and activities, sing-a-longs, cooking and nutrition education, and overall support to the children in learning about Canadian culture to be able to integrate into their new home and feel welcomed.
The SFU Surrey - TD Community Engagement Centre is working with BC Newcomer Camps to launch two new pilot after-school programs that run throughout the school year!
“Welcome to Canada” is a new after-school program for refugee children and youth ages 6-16 years old. Participants are enrolled for a minimum of 3 months and can continue longer if they wish. Each participant attends two 1.5-hour sessions per week. The program is delivered in a virtual setting in response to Covid-19.
"Newcomer to Notes" is a free music education program for newcomer refugee children. The lessons are delivered in-person by experienced musicians. Instruments and music books are provided. Music education curriculum includes music theory, note reading, and hands-on training to play piano.
