Table of Contents


With $5,000 in funding from Explorations, the Sunshine Coast School District hosted a sport and recreation camp for 18 children aged 9-12. Participating schools were Gibson's Elementary and Roberts Creek Elementary. The Sports Sampler Camp introduced students to Ultimate Frisbee, swimming, lacrosse, target shooting, canoeing and fencing as well as SportFit testing. The camp ended with a Mini-Olympics and closing ceremony.

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.
