Around the Campfire is a socialization group for children and youth with special needs. The organization runs two sites: Kanata and Central. The groups meet once a week. During each meeting participants sing, dance, play cooperative games and listen to stories. The focus is on social thinking. Learning what friendship is and how to make and sustain friendships. Our goal is to help improve and enrich the lives of people with special needs. The atmosphere is warm and accepting very much like the feeling you get when sitting around a campfire.
