About our Summer Camp
NOTE: Updated Camp information for 2018 will be available January 2018
Please note that the bus to the Summer Camp leaves our Centre at 8:30 a.m. and returns at 4:45 p.m.
This year we will be holding our 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 bused from our Centre each morning to the site in Bloomingdale and be bused back to the Centre at the end of the day. Junior campers will attend camp at our Noecker St. location, with one trip to the Bloomingdale site each Wednesday.
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, making and enjoying campfires, water fun, hikes, music, drumfit, co-operative games, picnic, drama, dance, sports, scavenger hunts, 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.
