Your children will have lots of fun activities to keep them busy this March Break. We will be running an age mix program for children ages 6-12. We have limited spots for registration and can only accept a maximum of 16 children for the whole week.


Registration will be on a first come first serve basis. I will not be accepting any applications in advance to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to sign up.

Community Builders

An exciting new program for youth at Nepean Housing!

This program is ideal for youth between the ages of 13-17 who are looking for volunteer hours for high school, some early job experience or just enjoy being creative and giving back to their community. 

The program will see youth collaborating to develop a new program or event for their community. They will get to decide as a group all the details of this new program. As youth progress through the program they will find that they are gaining valuable skills that will be fantastic additions to their resume. 

If you have a youth at home interested in signing up please have them fill out this application form:

PLEASE NOTE: we are currently only offering this program to NHC youth residing in Barrhaven.
