ACCA 2022

The Afro Canadian Caribbean Association (ACCA) is excited to announce that we will be running our first day camp this summer 2022! Focused on cultural elements from across Africa and the Diaspora, youth will learn valuable skills in a wide range of topics, while having fun in a community-based setting. Each week will be dedicated to a new topic and will allow youth to connect with each other, elders, and professionals from different fields.

Running 9:00am-4:00pm from Monday to Friday, our summer programming will last 8 weeks throughout the summer. Additionally, we will be running biweekly Family Night events to engage parents and caregivers in the fun!
