Community Development Programming Summer 2020

 

Community Gardens

 

We have opened our community gardens at 130 Centrepointe and 2 Hammill Court for the summer of 2020 season.  Gardeners are following strict COVID-19 Guidelines.    Guidelines were developed in partnership with Just Food and Ottawa Public Health.

 

Summer Camps

 

NHC is running summer camp at its Pallister Community House located at 48 A Dalkowski.   NHC is also partnering with Children's Village to run summer camp in Barrhaven in the basement of the office of 16 Kilbarron Road.   NHC has developed program procedures based on information provided by Ottawa Public Health, and guidelines developed by Children’s Village.  For more information on our summer camps in Barrhaven, click here.  For more information on our camps in the Centrepointe area, click here.

 

New Online Registration Process

 

Registration for the NHC summer camps has moved to an online form for the first time in NHC history.   We are excited for this new way of connecting with clients especially during the pandemic.  We will still be mindful of clients with barriers to accessing technology and will still have physical forms available to those who need it.  

 

Summer Fun Activity Craft Kits

 

NHC will be distributing some summer fun activity kits in the up and coming weeks. This kits will include supplies and instructions on how to put together various craft and or building activities.  

 

Science Activity Kits with Camps for Children

 

Thanks to our friends at Camps for Children, NHC families will soon be able to request a science fun learning kit that will contain video instructions and supplies for some fun at home science experiments.  There will be experiments for 2 types of kits (ages 5-8 and 9-12).

School Supply Assistance Program

 

NROCRC

 

Due to COVID-19 NROCRC has changed the method that they administer their school supply assistance program.  This year they will be directly referring clients to the Caring and Sharing Exchange.   Once a client’s application is accepted clients will be responsible for picking up their own supplies.  To register contact NROCRC at (613) 596-5626.  To learn more about school supply registration visit here.

Fall Programming

 

Modifications to the Common Rooms Community Spaces for future program use during COVID.

 

We are currently evaluating our community spaces and their contents in consideration of proceeding with running programming in our new COVID reality.     Issues that will need to be looked at in the spaces include: anything that is not easily cleaned, for example carpeting, chairs and couches that are made with non-washable fabrics.   Soft touch items that are also difficult to disinfect such as common supplies, books, puzzles ect.

Office Hours: 8:30 a.m. to noon, 1:15 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., closed Tuesday morning.
