Uchechi credits The City’s Summer Adventures program, a seven-week summer day camp for six- to 12-year olds, for the changes she sees in her daughter.
And Uchechi’s not alone in singing the praises of the program. Other moms– Shaundy Smith, Rita Dong and Sukhwant Parmar – also expressed appreciation for the program and how their respective child blossomed by participating.
“Most of the time they play, but they learn a lot of things like skills...so they know how to handle (different) situations,” Sukhwant said. “It’s really good, we love it, we want to do it and we want to thank The City for starting this program.”

Summer Adventures is one of several free community programs The City offers for children and youth each summer. While this year’s summer programs are ending, there are still opportunities for kids to get active and be social through other programs such as Calgary AfterSchool or those listed in the Fall Recreation Guide.
