Junior Gourmets (ages 8–12)
Do you want to work on your kitchen skills and get creative in making healthy food choices?  Youth are valuable in the kitchen and Junior Gourmets will provide that positive space to actively engage in learning.  Participants will build confidence in the kitchen as they learn safe and proper ways to prepare nutritious meals and snacks.

Babysitter Training (ages 11–14)
Join us as we offer Kidproof Canada's number one course! Babysitter Training is designed to increase positive values of caring and responsibility while building confidence and providing the hands-on experience and skills needed to be a great babysitter.

Home Alone + First Aid (ages 10+)
This is a mix of Kidproof's Home Alone course and Emergency First Aid. The fun and active course teaches planning and decision making. They are given tools on how to respond to medical emergencies and youth are empowered to be at home alone.

Bullyproofing (ages 7–11)
This Kidproof program is designed to be preventative and proactive so that children can avoid being bullied, and if they are bullied, know how to stop it. In an interactive, non-threatening manner, children learn how to become "Bullyproofed". 

Mess with Stress (ages 10–12)
This interactive and preventative summer program is designed to teach youth healthy ways to cope with stress and assist them in handling stressful situations that come their way. Stress is normal and sometimes even a good thing! This class will highlight how stress can affect you mentally, physically and emotionally, and will provide useful resources and tips.
