6–10 years | Express your ideas and show your originality at this exciting art program! We will be exploring various mediums of art including, paint, pastels, and papier-mâché. On the final evening of the program, we will have our very own FFRN Art Exhibit for all the children to show off their works of art which, they can then take home in their art portfolios. Children will be challenged to think outside the box and use their creativity with art projects that will boost their confidence and let loose their imaginations!

8–12 years | As a part of our Kids with Confidence program, we are excited to provide our six-week Girls Inspired self-awareness and leadership program. This GIRLS ONLY program covers topics such as healthy relationships, managing emotions, self-esteem, handling conflict and leadership. Participants will learn about topics through fun self-reflection activities, group discussion, games and crafts.
10 years and up | Ideally, children should be supervised at all times by a responsible adult. However, today’s family situations often cannot accommodate this idea. The Home Alone Program is designed to provide children with the necessary skills and knowledge to be safe and responsible when home alone for short periods of time. It will help them understand how to prevent problems, handle real-life situations, and keep them safe and constructively occupied. This program has been developed by the Canada Safety Council and is recommended for children who are at least 10 years of age and up. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

8-12 years | The Kids with Confidence: Calm and Collected program supports participants to build communication skills and healthy ways of identifying and expressing emotions in a safe and supportive environment. This helps youth to understand how strong emotions can affect their lives and relationships. Through activities, group discussions and self-reflection participants will increase awareness of their emotions, with a focus on dealing with anger. Discussions will include creative ways to express and communicate feelings with useful and appropriate strategies. Throughout the 6-week program, participants will be provided with strategies on how to calm down when they are angry, upset, frustrated or overwhelmed. There will also be opportunities to work out problems and apply new strategies in daily life. Come join us for this interactive program.
