Boundary Beach Elementary School Hosts Explorations Camps

Table of Contents


Boundary Beach Elementary School received Explorations funding to offer 'Art in the Bay' during the summer of 2005. The two, one-week camps ran half-days and attracted 50 children. The program brought nature and art together through texture, shape and colour. Students worked on driftwood sculptures from the nearby beach. The camp linked with a regular art program at the school, combining regular nature walks with the creativity of art.

Explorations provided students in kindergarten to Grade 7 with opportunities to explore arts, sport and recreation in summer camp settings. The program, which ran from 2005-2008, served students who were otherwise unable to attend summer camps due to location, local resources or financial limitations. Explorations was supported by the Province of British Columbia.
