“I like summer because we go swimming at the outdoor pools and walks to the park.”

Emily, age 10

“Summer at Rossbrook House is amazing as an intermediate (ages 12-17). Making new friends practically every day because there are many new faces walking through the doors. Whether it’s blasting music and singing our hearts out in the van or even just having a nice talk, it’s fun to just be around people where you can be yourself.” | Tristian, age 16

August Schedule for ages 6-11:

Summer is a busy time at Rossbrook House. Safety and fun are both on the agenda.

Keeping the doors open, 24 hours, when school is out is a long-standing tradition at Rossbrook House. Providing a safe space since 1976 for children and youth because ‘no child who does not want to be alone, should ever have to be’.
