Peace Out – Acadia Area Day Camp

The Acadia Networking Group consists of the Acadia Community Garden & Art Society, Strong Neighbourhood Initiative, Lutheran Church of our Saviour and McDougall United Church. The Group is sponsoring an Acadia Area Day Camp from Monday, August 8 to Friday, August 12. It’s for children aged 6 – 12. The Day Camp runs from 9am until 4pm.

Here is a message from the Group:

Planning is coming together really well. We have 29 campers registered with over half of them coming from disadvantaged homes. The camp theme is about Peace – What is it; Peace in Me; Peace in Families, Schools & Communities; Peace with Nature and Peace in Our World. We will be going to the swimming pool one afternoon, going to the Community Garden, having special musician and cultural guests and doing crafts and outdoor activities and games. Both snacks and lunches will be included for campers and volunteers.

We are needing two more Youth Leaders (ages 16+) and at least one more Adult Leader. If someone is not able to commit for the week, we could hopefully match them up with someone else who can only help part-time as well.

We also need some help with snack and lunch preparation from 11:00 until 1:30 each day – especially on Thursday, August 11.

If you or someone you know is able to help, please contact McDougall United Church or phone 403.252.1620

Thanks so much!
