Summer Camp and Activities

Summer Camp

The Teresa Group offers a summer camp experience for children between the ages of 9 and 18 from the Greater Toronto Area.

This one week program allows local children and youth who are affected by HIV a chance to connect with their peers.  They will have opportunities to build supports, learn life skills that will empower them to live self-sufficient, independent, productive lives, and most importantly, have fun!

  • “I have been more active in participating in sports.” (Girl; age 9)
