There’s still time for children aged six and up to register for an overnight outdoor camping trip that takes place August 20-21. It’s the final event of the District’s summer recreation program, and will give participants a chance to learn camping skills and take part in a variety of fun events.
The event takes places at Paarens Beach, sites 38 and 39, with participants dropped off at 10:00 am on the 20th (a list of things to pack to make the trip safe and enjoyable is available at the District Office, where children can be registered; the cost is $50 per person). In addition to learning how to set up a tent and cook over a campfire, participants will take part in a variety of fun events, including flashlight tag, capture the flag, swimming, and a variety of crafts. And of course no camping trip would be complete without smores and some chilling ghost stories once the sun sets!
