About the Event

Moms Against Racism Presents... Be a Kid! Each month get together with Black, Indigenous and Kids of Colour to have fun participating in a different activity and building community. This month join us for Outdoor Games with Human Nature Counselling at Power to Be!

Our Be A Kid event for August will be full of fun games and outdoor activity for the whole family! Come and experience the joy of playing! Joining us from Human Nature Counselling, we have Nate Demetrius and Kelly Nakatsuka facilitating a morning of games, fun and togetherness. We will play games like Octopus Tag, Camoflouge, Whale vs Squid, Bear, Salmon, Mosquito- and more. This is a great opportunity to meet new friends, engage with nature and learn some new outdoor games to see you through the Summer.

All of this will be taking place at the beautiful Power To Be facilities located right on Prospect Lake.

About the Be A Kid Program 

Every child deserves to play freely, to laugh loudly, and to explore the wonders of the world in a joyfully inquisitive way. Every child deserves the opportunity to try something new, to connect with nature, and to do so without the judgmental and scrutinizing gaze of the people around them.

Unfortunately, for Black, Indigenous and Children of Colour, they often don't get these opportunities.

These children often face barriers when it comes to… being a kid. Barriers to participating in activities like finances, travel, time, lack of knowledge, stigma, fear for safety, and even just feeling like they’re going to stick out or be the only racialized kid there.

Be a Kid events are

  • Fun and welcoming
  • Open to children who identity as BIPOC and their immediate families/caregivers (white family members/caregivers are warmly welcome)
  • Intended to build community. Come ready to meet and talk with new people.

Thank you to our 2024/2025 funder! 

We are so grateful to be running another year of the Be a Kid program funded by the Government of Canada (Financé par le gouvernement du Canada). This program supports our members, the public, and their racialized kids in creating community. This program will help to create opportunities for Black, Indigenous and Children of Colour to connect with each other, in a psychologically and culturally safer environment, while participating in an activity they may otherwise not.
