City to extend summer day camp if teacher strike continues

If the B.C. teachers continue their strike into September the city plans to continue its summer recreation program for children, reports the city.

The Recreation Services Department at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex will extend its very popular Boitanio Summer Day Camp, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 2 if the strike continues.

This program is for school aged children five to 12 years old, and runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Five-year-olds must be enrolled to attend school this fall. Limited spaces are available and the cost is $32 per day per child.

Each day is themed to include safe, supervised, action-packed outdoor days full of activities with creative and innovative staff.

Rec & Roll program leader Malinda Gill and her team will be orchestrating a great program that will be located in Boitanio Park and moved to the complex during inclement weather, reports the city.

Parents are advised to pack plenty of snacks, a big lunch, and a water bottle for their children. Seventy-two hours notice is required for cancellations.

Full payment is required in advance, however, a refund will be credited back to registrants when the strike concludes for any remaining days that were paid for. Limited spaces are available and detailed registration forms are applicable for all registrants.

To register, or for more information, please call the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 250-398-7665.
