Tri-community summer programming popular with young people

The northern village of Air Ronge organizes a summer program for people aged 5 to 17. It also started on July 4 and ends on August 26.

Participants ages 5 to 11 attend from 10 a.m. to noon, while all older attendees attend from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Karriele Charles and Shaylene Martin have been hired as coordinators.

“With the younger ones, we do about 60 minutes of exercise with them and then we do crafts,” Charles said, adding that the afternoon is similar but age-appropriate. “We provide snacks while they do their crafts. Depending on the week we do, we teach them different things.

Some of the theme weeks (Monday to Friday) include science, water, woodworking, gardening and the environment. Registration for the program is still open and Charles mentioned that many places are open in the afternoon.

The Pre-Cam Community School in La Ronge will be hosting a Summer Literacy Camp July 11-29, Monday-Friday. Camps will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and attendees will receive free snacks and books. Residents are encouraged to attend and read with their child or send them alone.

The University of Saskatchewan will host science camps at Pre-Cam and Bell’s Point Elementary School July 18-22. Camp registrations at Pre-Cam are already closed.
