We are looking forward to holding our second summer camp at Bloomingdale Mennonite Church which is located in Bloomingdale next to hiking trails, a forest and the Snyder flats (see map below). Our senior campers will be bussed from the Centre each morning to the site in Bloomingdale and be bussed back to the Centre at the end of the day. Junior campers will attend camp at our Noecker St. location, with two trips to the Bloomingdale site on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Our summer camp will be operated as a forest and nature camp. The camp will offer forest and nature school experiences and connect children to their natural environment. Camp activities will include arts and crafts, fort building, using tools, working with ropes, daily campfires, water activities, nature hikes, music, drumfit, co-operative games, yoga, mindfulness, picnic, drama, dance, sports, scavenger hunts, and local and aboriginal history, to name a few!
We have 2 camp groups this year:
- Senior camp is for children entering grade one in September up to kids who are 10 years old
- Junior camp is for children entering Senior Kindergarten in September.
NOTE: Community registration is on Tuesday, February 27, starting at 7:30 am
