Newcomer Youth March Break Camps at HCDSB!

HCDSB Settlement and Multicultural Services hosted three successful camps for newcomer, refugee and international students in Burlington, Oakville and Milton over March Break.

The goal of the camps were to create a safe space for Newcomer Youth to meet new friends and practice their English-speaking skills!

Students had the opportunity to participate in civic engagement activities to earn volunteer hours. They also visited ServiceOntario and learned about employment opportunities in Halton.

The highlight of the week was their field trip to the Ontario Science Centre, which gave campers the opportunity to experience a hands-on approach to science, learn about space missions, and new innovations for future trips to Mars.

The camps helped close to 40 newcomer youth build their confidence, and make lifelong friendships!
