About Adventure Place
Adventure Place works with families and other care providers to strengthen children’s social, emotional, behavioural, developmental and adaptive functioning in all of their environments. Every child and family is unique and while some may require treatment, others are simply looking for parent/child drop-in programs or parent education and training. The Adventure Place continuum of service delivery model provides families with access to a wide array of services based on their individual needs. This coordinated and integrated approach recognizes the importance of prevention, early intervention and treatment services.
