Table of Contents


With Explorations funding of $5,000, Pender Harbour Community School Society offered a sport and recreation program for 18 children aged 7-12. Three schools participated in the camp: Madeira Park Elementary, Pender Harbour Secondary and Pender Harbour Community School Society.

Activities included literacy games, drumming, soccer, dance movement and art classes using a variety of materials. There was also a natural history class conducted on the water via a boat tour of the harbour.

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.
