March Break Camp

After this long winter it is hard to believe that spring is almost here along with March Break!

This week we have a camp at the Gem Theatre in Keswick.  We will be doing lots of fun activities including outdoor games and walks.  Here is our schedule if you are interested in signing up.  It costs $25/day and you bring your own lunch and snacks.

Summer Camp

What a summer!  Our Day Campers have had three different locations to choose between this year – Jersey Public School in Keswick, Sutton Public School in Sutton and Morning Glory Public School in Pefferlaw.  Each camp has been tailored to fit the needs of their particular community and then we have joined all camps for a weekly trip day.

We went to Sibbald’s Provincial Park and Kortright Centre for outdoor and nature geared activities. Sibbald's Point
