Sibshop programs provide opportunities for siblings of children and youth with special needs to obtain peer support and education within a highly recreational context. This Sibshop is open to all children and youth (ages 8-13 years) living in Simcoe County who have a sibling with special needs. Siblings are invited to come out and meet other sibs (usually for the first time), have fun, laugh, talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sib with special needs, play some great games, learn something about the services their siblings receive, and have some more fun!

Each SibShop includes a meal, along with a lot of fun and interactive games and activities. The Sibshops are theme based to help create an engaging and relaxed atmosphere for participating children and youth. Activities may include scavenger hunts, team puzzle solving, role playing, and crafts. During meal time and activities we incorporate time for the children and youth to get to know each other, share experiences and offer each other advice and support.
