New Community Connections camp for 5–6 year olds

Summer is just around the corner and so are the Summer Day Camps!

Summer is just around the corner and so are the Summer Day Camps! Offered by Community Connections, the Summer Day Camp program is going on their 17th year of providing children with a fun-filled summer with each day piled high with excitement.

This summer will be the first time Community Connections will be offering a camp for 5-6 year olds. Camp Mackenzie, as it will be known, includes will offer themes such as science and nature, cooking, culture, and carnival.  Each week will feature a different theme and the events and activities of the week all relate to the theme. A camp for younger children was developed in response to feedback from families whose young children are on the wait-list for the Children’s Adventure Summer Day Camp program. Program activities at Camp MacKenzie will be geared towards the interests and abilities of younger children. Camp Mackenzie will be run by Erin Maclachlan, Rosetta Bernava and Caitlin Carswell and use the Alliance Church as “home base”.

While there are new additions to the summer day camps, some things remain the same. Adventurer Children Day Camps, which is for 6–10 year olds, will be up and running with some small changes. Meighan Phelps has taken on the challenge of creating a camp where children could learn new things, while still having an exciting time. Adventurer Day Camps themes will include the always popular Wet and Wild Water, Science, Exploration and Discovery, and Nature Week. The crafts, experiments, and games are also changing so camp can be an even more of a memorable experience. Themes new for this year include Around the World and Cultures week. This themed week will feature games that are native to other countries, along with different crafts and treats. Adventurer Day Camps will be led by Meighan Phelps, Kaarina Duncan, Sam Messaros, and Eric Schwenck.

The third camp Community Connections offers is the Pre-teen camp, for children from ages 10-12. Pre-teen camps will be led by Alexis McCrae and Nick Potocki, who are making sure the youth of Revelstoke have the opportunity to take part in some fabulous activities this summer. Pre-teen camps have themes such as Pump that Adrenaline, Crazy Cuisine, Spectacular Sports, Camping and Wacky Water. Activities include a trip to SkyTrek, rock climbing, and kayaking. Pre-teen camps give the youth an opportunity to take part in new adventures while keeping appropriately busy all summer.
