We strive to offer activities to benefit the well being of all island children together. At present we have no tax government funding assistance and our priority is to ensure that our quality instructors, assistant personal are paid fairly for their time and effort and an independent liability insurance is covered.

We would like to ensure that bursaries/scholarship will be available for families in need. Bursary applications are available. We are seeking funding support from generous community "angels" who wish to contribute towards this endeavor. For those who need a tax receipt we are hopeful to confirm an organization with a charitable tax status who shares the faith in enriching the lives of children who can assist us. please contact Susan John 250-935-6665.
