Burnaby School District Hosts Explorations Summer Camps

Table of Contents


Funding of $5,000 from Explorations allowed the Burnaby School District to host four week-long sport and recreation camps for 95 students aged 5-13. Five schools participated in the camps at the Second Street Community School.

Activities included volleyball, Frisbee golf, lacrosse and tennis with a weekly field trip and a fun tournament at the end of camp. Organizers say the camps provided an opportunity for children from different ethnic groups to be introduced to a variety of physical activities.

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.
