On Fire Programs
The program objectives of ON FIRE are for members to have fun, make friends, learn and grow, develop understanding about well being, and make a positive difference in the community.
ON FIRE offers two main program activities. Regular Fun Days occur throughout the year, offering participants the chance to meet new friends in similar family situations, have fun, and have a break. Camps are held at least annually, combining fun activities, peer support, mental health & well-being groups, life skills and respite.
Each ON FIRE activity begins and ends at a central meeting point. It is the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to organize transport for the participant to the meeting point before the activity and from the meeting point after the activity; ON FIRE staff cannot make these arrangements.
The ON FIRE objectives are achieved through a range of program activities, including regular fun day outings, camps, peer support groups (chat groups). telechats, leadership development initiatives and evidence-based coaching.
These social outings are held 6 - 8 times per year and are run over a day, on the weekend.
The purpose of this activity is for children to meet regularly to have fun, enjoy leisure and experience friendship.
Camps are run over 2 - 3 days. Camps provide opportunities for enjoyable leisure activities, fun, respite, friendship, learning and growing life skills, developing understanding about well being and making a positive difference.
The camps include group work in peer support, life skills, well being and creative expression groups.
