Central Coast School District Hosts Explorations Camp

Table of Contents


Explorations funding of $5,000 enabled the Central Coast School District to host an arts, sport and recreation camp for 20 children aged 5-8. Bella Coola Elementary hosted the camp, which served students from Hagensberg, Nusatsum and Firvale.

Activities included a daily combination of arts and sports, as well as Nuxalk First Nations language dances and games. Organizers say a camp held in this remote community reached children who would not otherwise have an opportunity to attend summer camp.

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.
