Table of Contents


Lord Strathcona Elementary School used $5,000 in Explorations funding to offer four sport and recreation summer camps for local children in 2005. Approximately 75 children from two schools took part, ranging in age from five to 12. The camps, which specialized in basketball skills, were offered for both younger and older girls and boys in the Strathcona area. Participants experienced the best in skill development, training, conditioning, and knowledge of the game. Children also learned valuable life skills including teamwork and sportsmanship. Refreshments, prizes, and a camp T-shirt were included during the week.

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.
