Summer is a season of growth, not just for nature but for our children too. It presents a unique opportunity to enhance vital social skills in a fun, engaging environment. This summer, West Coast Centre for Learning is excited to offer two special camps designed to teach social skills and friendship skills to children. Read on the learn about our Secret Agent Society and our PEERS Friendship Skills summer camps.

Unlocking Social Skills with SAS

Do Any of These Describe Your Child?

  • Bright but struggles with social interactions
  • Finds understanding social cues challenging
  • Difficulty in making and maintaining friendships
  • Feels anxious or overwhelmed in social situations
  • Shows reluctance to engage in group activities
  • Questions their ability to fit in with peers

The Secret Agent Society (SAS) camps welcome children aged 8-12 and are designed to address these challenges. Through engaging missions with spy gadgets and activities like games and arts & crafts, our SAS Summer Camp helps children enhance their social skills, build confidence in social settings, and understand complex emotions. Located in Surrey, Vancouver, and Burnaby.

Building Friendships with PEERS

Our PEERS Friendship Skills Camps specifically design daily classes to teach children important social skills and allow them to practice through interactive socialization activities. Our camps for children ages 6-12 may be appropriate for children with

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Those experiencing difficulty socializing with others.

In PEERS Friendship Skills Camps, we teach children these skills as they engage in activities such as stories, games, and arts & crafts.

A Summer of Learning and Fun

Both SAS and PEERS camps teach important skills and they do this in a fun, summer setting. Children learn to make and keep friends but they also learn to navigate social situations. Join us this summer at West Coast Centre for Learning, where children learn the art of friendship and social interaction, setting the stage for a future of confident communication and lasting relationships. This summer, watch them blossom into socially skilled individuals who navigate the world’s complexities with ease and confidence.
