Camping fun at Paarens

The last event of the summer recreation program starts on Aug. 20.

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!
