    • Ray Twinney Recreation Centre (meet out front!)

    JOIN US every Thursday morning for a stroller walk for woman of ALL AGES.  Babies in strollers are welcome!


    -----

    We leave from Ray Twinny centre at 9:45am every Thursday.

    The walk is for women who are at home (working from home, chose to stay home with kids, mat leave, have a condition that doesn't allow them to work etc) and who find that they are battling depression, anxiety, isolation and loneliness.

    I am starting this walk because I suffered from some postpartum anxiety and didn't start to feel better until I found a friend who had the same thing. Plus working from home can get very lonely and it's a tough cycle from there. With my new project of Real Housewife of York Region I vowed to make mental health and mental health awareness one of my main initiatives. Thus the walk was born.

    This walk is being offered by Real Housewife of York Region because it's for women of all ages.

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!

    Safety Topics include : Home Alone , Basic First Aid, Social Media Safety, Outdoor safety.  Other topics include STEM, Caring of the environment, and more.  

    The cost is $100 for the one week camp, per child. Register today to secure your spot!
