PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES

ROC Programming

We offer programming in three major streams: education and activism, artistic endeavours, and active outdoors. Participants can choose which programming to engage in which allows them to create their own unique ROC experience. NEW this summer we are offering four different weekly themes and four different ROC boxes! Each week will be different programs with a different ROC BOX so you can sign up for as many weeks as you want!

Education and Activism includes educational programming, guest speakers and presenters, and social justice. Programs have included Trans 101, Connecting Beyond the Binary, Privilege Walks, Sign Language and Coming Out Tips/Tricks.

Artistic Endeavours include arts and crafts, music, dance, drama, and writing. Programs have included ukulele, storytelling, drama and improv, mindful movement, karaoke, cooking and makeup sessions.

Active Outdoors programming promotes physical fitness and helps create a love of the outdoors. Programs have included dance sessions, yoga, outdoor scavenger hunts, indoor fort building and indoor kayaking.
