Rotary Club of Brighton helps support our Summer Day Camps
The Rotary Club of Brighton has recently awarded a grant of $500 to the Friends of Presqu'ile in support of the Kids ?n Nature Summer Day Camp that was launched in 2011.
This year, the two one-week Summer Day Camps will welcome boys and girls, 8 to 11 years old, to enjoy an outdoor educational experience in Presqu'ile Park. Our Schools Interpreter and Camp Leader deliver a wide range of programs that have been developed around an environmental curriculum, and also include recreational games, crafts, team building, and much, much more.
Grants such as this will help towards the associated costs of our Day Camp such as: the salaries of the Schools Interpreter and Camp Leader and also providing for a qualified Lifeguard as necessary; teaching aids and supplies required to deliver the programs; and the hire of the school bus to transport the children from Brighton Community Centre into the Park.
Dates for our 2012 camps are July 16 to 20, and August 13 to 17. For more information and registrations forms, please call 613 475 1688, ext 3.
