We are officially in strange times. While we’re now required to be closer than ever to ourselves and our families, we are also more physically isolated than ever from each other. But that doesn’t mean we’re in this alone. We‘ve got our village, and we’re here to make sure we all make it through this as best we can. Stay tuned on our Facebook pages and Managing the Motherload group to stay connected to each other. Let’s make sure the kids (and everyone else) are all right. We’re in it together!

    Looking for a way to save the kids from boredom while learning valuable safety skills? Introducing the Life With A Baby Virtual Camp! We know the kids are home more and often being left alone so parents can work or get groceries. We’ve developed the stay safe program to give your kids the skills they need to be at home alone and peace of mind for you while also meeting new friends, having fun, and enjoying a virtual camp. Lwab stay safe camp incorporates learning, safety and fun.  For children aged 8-13 years of age. 

    Give them an escape from the mundane with days full of fun! We’ve wrapped practical and academic learning in experiments, activities, projects and quests to feed even the most curious minds. They’ll meet and bond with new friends in small groups of only 15 kids, led by dedicated counsellors who will be the guide of their summer adventure.

    Choose from two age groups: 8-10 and 11-13 Each cabin (secure and private Zoom rooms) will have up to 15 kids. Trained and certified leaders will guide them through group activities using a mix of inside and outside tasks, so they’re not sitting in front of a screen the whole time. Each day begins at 10 AM and ends at Noon - so they’ve got the afternoon to do their thing, and you’ve had a morning to yourself!
