As we approach the last week of June, kids are finishing up the school year and will begin summer holidays shortly. Different organizations around Lethbridge are planning to offer summer camps this year to keep kids busy and engaged.
After 16 months of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, Albertans are looking forward to what is shaping up to be a normal summer. One part of summer that was impacted last year was summer camps for children.
As part of the Alberta Government’s Open for Summer Plan, summer camps have been given the green light and organizations around Lethbridge are preparing to welcome kids back this summer. The Cor Van Raay YMCA says registration is already open.
Across the city, Lethbridge College announced last week that kids will once again be roaming the halls this summer. Director of Business Development at the college, Jason Donkersgoed, says kids can try out carpentry, or learn more about technology and the ecosystem, as well as participate in Kodiaks athletic camps.
Or, if your kids would like to enjoy the hot weather and be surrounded by nature, summer camps at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre are set to go ahead in late July.
Resource Development Coordinator at the Nature Centre, Curtis Goodman, says their day camps are in collaboration with multiple organizations around Lethbridge.
Programs are limited, you can register by visiting the organization’s website.
