Campbell River School District Hosts Explorations Summer Camps

Table of Contents


In 2007, with $5,000 in Explorations funding, the Campbell River School District held an arts, sport and recreation camp for children aged 6-12. Organizers say participants would not normally have access to a summer camp because of financial limitations and transportation challenges. This subsidized, local program was a new experience for most campers. Activities included fishing on the pier, making sun visors, painting rocks, swimming at an outdoor pool and a field trip to the local art gallery

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.
