Building Skills . . . Changing Lives

We believe in kids.   When all children have access to opportunities to learn skills, connect with the community and play safely great things happen!  Children who participate in critical hours and enriched experience programming have better self esteem, do better in school and strive for more from life. These are the keys to breaking the cycles that living in poverty creates. 

Christie Lake Kids creates opportunities for economically disadvantaged children and youth in Ottawa that changes the trajectory of their young lives through sport, arts, camp, mentoring and leadership programming that recognizes their needs, supports and challenges them.

The at risk children engaged with CLK experience unmatched support  as they develop soft skills like building healthy relationships, social responsibility,  and personal accountability through the skill building and recreation programs they enjoy after school, weekends and during summer both in the inner city and at our camp property.
