THE HUB PROGRAMS
The Hub is a safe space for youth ages 12-18 to come after school and connect with friends, supportive adults and fun programs.
While some may need to burn off some extra energy in the gym, many simply enjoy lazing around on the couches or getting caught up on some homework. A variety of art, skill and leadership programs are also available for youth to learn and discover.
So don’t go home to an empty house, come over to The Hub and get involved with youth your age who are looking for a place to hang out and live life to the max.
The Deck provides a safe and interactive place for youth ages 12-21 to skateboard and scooter indoors during the cold winter months. We have adult volunteers who have been trained to work with youth and support them in skate as well as life.
We see the park as more than a place to skate, we create community. With an entire youth centre and cafe available to us at “The Hub”, there are many opportunities to make new friends while you shred.
Be sure to keep checking out this site as we have more plans for the spring and summer as our parking lot gets a redesign with skaters in mind.
Summit Camps are geared for youth ages 12-17. Our camp programs require that campers possess a high level of interest and endurance level to be fully engaged in these weeks. We are offering a high caliber, high impact summer camp program designed for older youth who may have grown out of the usual camp format but still want to have a fun packed summer. Our camps focus on specific skills and interests, with each week having a different theme. Pick out the theme that suits you best and get ready for a week of fun, skill development, faith discussion, character building and new friends.
If you are a youth who is older than 17, we strongly recommend that you apply as a volunteer for the potential of being involved with the camps as a Counselor in Training (CIT) or in the Summer Support Team.
Join The Collective as youth gather every Thursday evening from 7-9pm.
This group is geared towards youth ages 12-18 year olds from London area community and churches. A medium sized youth group, The Collective offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where youth can ask questions and learn more about what the power of Jesus’ love can do in their daily lives. Regular evening activities consist of large group games, worship time, prayer, messages from the Bible and small group discussions. The highlight of these evenings is the fellowship that youth can find while sharing their lives with peers.
You do not have to be a member of a church to participate in this program.
OUTBOUND excursions take youth out of the city limits and introduces them to a variety of interactive activities in the great outdoors. Through various nature-based experiences, youth are introduced to the endless masterpieces our Creator God has made and blessed us with and in this environment, youth learn life skills like leadership, communication and team work. What a powerful way to learn about yourself and who you are being called to be when you have been removed from the pressures and noise of the technology saturated world created by humans.
Program ages: 12-17yrs
Compass is a community basketball program that started in Pond Mills area in the summer of 2013. It started as pick-up ball with over 30 local high school boys, some with experience and many without. The goal was always to use basketball to build relationships, create mentoring opportunities, provide a safe environment where players feel loved and encouraged, and to allow them to find their God-given purpose and identity.
The goal has never changed.

Café Connect is an eclectic space where everyone feels like they’ve come home, a meeting place and safe space for community and all youth.
We’ve created a space to escape the pressures of life. Café Connect is a wonderful place for youth to enjoy a beverage and a light refreshment, or for the community to gather. Stay as long as you want. Get lost in a book or a conversation. Catch up on your friends through Facebook, send out some resumes or play a board game.
