Day camp to offer some summer fun

Rossland day camp Aug. 22-25

Bored kids (and anxious parents) counting the days until school starts have an exciting week ahead to break the summer doldrums.

Adventure Day Camp is being offered again in Rossland for kids from Kindergarten to Grade 6.

The camp is a four-day whirlwind of activities, sponsored by the Canadian Sunday School Mission.

Roland McQuade of Chilliwack has been bringing the non-denominational program to town for several years, holding six or seven day camps during the summer.

“This year, there will be only four,” said local contact Barbara Mason.

“We’ve had up to 40 kids participate. It’s all day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and kids bring their own lunch.”

Mason said the camp includes indoor and outdoor games.

“There’s quite a lot to keep them busy. No down time – Bible stories, games related to Bible stories, mission stories, crafts, snack time and lots of songs.”

The camp will be held at the MacLean School gym and outside from Aug. 22 to 25. There is no charge but parents must provide lunches.

“There’s always a barbecue on the last day at Lions Campground and the kids put on a play.”

Local assistance is provided by the Trail Alliance Church which picks up any costs and bakes a mountain of cookies for the event.

“We welcome everybody,” Mason said.  “We don’t like to take really young kids as it’s a bit long for pre-kindergarteners to manage a full day.”

To register, just show up at MacLean on the first day at 9 a.m. Bring a lunch and Care Card. For more information, contact Mason at 362-9044.
