Tweens and teens and Ks to fours can enjoy a week of creative activity and outdoor fun this summer in the Lower Similkameen.
Local supporters are asked to become a sponsor to children for their week of day camp.
“The idea is to see that every family can enroll regardless of means,” said Dave Cursons of The PEACE Program at Lower Similkameen Community Services.
The day camps are a cooperative project by Dragonfly Learning, the Lower Similkameen Community Services Society (LSCSS) and recreation programs of the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen.
Sponsorship for kids in need can be given through the LSCSS.
The one week camps cost $150 and includes leaders, instructors, materials, lunches, snacks and a whole lot of fun.
Playtime clothes, sneaks, not flip-flops, a sun hat, SPF 50 sunscreen and a water bottle with a name on it, is all that’s required.
Day camp drop-off is at Keremeos Grist Mill and Gardens at 9:30 a.m. and pick-up is at 3 p.m. every day.
Ten to 13-year-olds can enjoy crafts, run around play and special activities during each week of camp, from July 8 to 12 and August 5 to 9.
Five to seven year olds gather for the week of July 15 to 19 and August 12 to 16.
