Treatment - Activities and Outings

Group Activities
Within each program, children and youth participate in weekly group sessions led by program staff that enhances their emotional skill set. These include but are not limited to:

  • Social skills
  • Anger Management
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Substance Abuse Education
  • Life skills
  • Creative activities (crafts, camping, etc.)
As the needs of the client population changes, the skill building elements of the program are adjusted accordingly.

Physical Activity
Physical activities are a positive and necessary part of the program. Children and youth need to learn pro-social ways to use time and energy, to prepare them for future, less structured placements. Team sports encourage socialization and cooperation and provide an appropriate release for built-up energy. Some children and youth may participate in community sports and recreational activities.

Physical activities are a part of the house program, day program at school, and children and youth may have the opportunity to join organized community activities. Participation in recreational activities is not dependent on the child's behaviour; it is part of the therapeutic process.

Children and youth will have access to community outings as organized by the Program Manager. These outings are well structured and supervised by Bayfield staff. The frequency of outings increase during the summer months. Examples of outings include:

  • Camping and hiking at provincial parks
  • Swimming at public beaches
  • Exercising at the YMCA
  • Community sporting events
  • Music lessons
  • Canada's Wonderland
  • Ontario Science Center
  • Toronto Blue Jays Games
