Summertime fun

Participants in the recreation programs offered by the District of Fort St. James and coordinated by Caitlyn Burdeniuk were out at Paarens Beach recently for the Kids Camp Out, one of a wide range of activity-filled days for kids.

There were so many fun activities, they couldn’t even choose which ones were their favourites.

Participants in the recreation programs offered by the District of Fort St. James and coordinated by Caitlyn Burdeniuk were out at Paarens Beach recently for the Kids Camp Out, one of a wide range of activity-filled days for kids.

The camp-out at Paarens Beach was the scene of some organized chaos, with tents being organized and set up while some kids played on the beach.

Camper Brody Beddow, in explaining why he liked the recreation program, said: “They’re really fun and I don’t have to camp with my parents.”

Then the pizza was brought out, and the entire group descended on the boxes.

When asked about their favourites, the answers ranged from the Inspector Gadget day, Tool Time, Science, and the Mexican Fiesta. Each day includes games and crafts geared towards the theme, with experiments on Science day, a pinata for the Mexican Fiesta, and some small construction projects for Tool Time.

 

The few activities left for the summer before schools once again open their doors include a Birthday Bash to celebrate summer birthdays, a Special Services day to visit to some of the different emergency services like the fire hall and police station and a bus trip to the pool in Prince George.
