Summer Programs

The RAFT provides access to FREE, summer recreational programs for youth | gym, art, social activities and more!


In partnership with Niagara Regional Housing, the RAFT became the coordinator of summer programming.

  • Urban Yoga was a great experience. I loved how nice and welcoming the instructor Trisha was. They showed us amazing easy positions that we can do on a daily basis. The instructor provided a fun, safe environment. This is a program that many people love and look forward to.
