Programming

For the time being, Rossbrook House will be asking all participants (and staff) to continue to wear a face mask. Those who do not have one will be given one. When this changes, we will update you here. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

 

The children and youth initiate the programs offered. Programming is flexible and unfolds naturally as needs and desires are expressed. Sports, cultural activities and recreational outings are always popular activities.

The heart and soul of Rossbrook is the drop-in. Rossbrook House belongs to the children and youth. It is a safe place to belong, play, learn and become…

It is a place where they meet their needs for socialization, recreation, personal development and crisis intervention, when necessary.

The informal atmosphere at Rossbrook lends itself to spontaneous games of pool, cards, and board games. It’s where the kids can share a meal and meet new friends.

Rossbrook House is a ‘home away from home’ for over 1,000 children and youth each year.

Ages 6-12 (Energy Plus) and the Intermediates (ages 13-18) check the monthly calendar to see what’s happening each day or evening.

The calendar includes regular weekly programming like Learning Always, music, or cooking class as well as special activities like a dance or celebration.

It also includes outings like bowling, swimming or sports.

Other fun outings that happen throughout the year might include special outings that often have a limited number of available spaces/tickets and may require participants to sign up.

Rossbrook is open 365 days of the year, 24 hours on weekends and any school holidays. The building closes at 12:00 midnight on school days. Drop-in hours begin at 3:30pm on school days.
