Nature and Creation Week

July 13, 2019

Our first week of camp has been completed! Throughout “Nature and Creation” week, our campers engaged in various mindful and team building exercises, ameliorating their communication and interpersonal skills. The children also learned about the Creation story in Genesis and the wonders of nature.

We started the week off with a Rules and Safety tour and a Scavenger Hunt in which our campers learned to work together in order to find many hidden objects around the school and ultimately, become familiarized with their new environment.

During the week, the campers took part in a variety of fun activities such as Ultimate Frisbee, Minute to Win it and baking cup cakes at the Salvation Army.

The kids had a blast swimming at the Cedarbrae Collegiate Institute pool. We then finished off this summery week with a pizza party and some wet fun, playing at the splash park.

Even though this week has come to an end, we can look forward to next week! Campers will be taking part in several innovative and creative activities as well as going on a trip to the Ontario Science Centre!
