Sunshine Coast Hosts Explorations Summer Camps

Table of Contents


Funding of $5,000 from Explorations allowed the Sunshine Coast School District to host two arts, sport and recreation camps for 48 children in Grades 3-6. Hosted at Halfmoon Bay Elementary, the camps involved pottery, writing and other arts activities as well as kayaking, hiking and mountain biking. Organizers say the sessions provided a low-cost, quality camp experience during the most common work hours, giving many children their first instruction in art and recreation.

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.
