Stride Avenue Community School Hosts Explorations Summer Camps

Table of Contents


Funding of $1,200 from Explorations helped Stride Avenue Community School to host a one-week sport and recreation camp for 18 kindergarten and elementary students. The camp focused on intensive soccer skill development and was the only such program in the neighbourhood. Using games to teach, students learned a variety of skills such as ball control and shooting and were introduced to team tactics. The camp ended with a Mini World Cup.

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.
