Summer Playroom camps – Register before June 16!


Don’t forget to book your child in for some fun Playroom camps this summer! We have lots of great themes to choose from to help your little one beat their boredom. The Childcare Committee will be funding some exciting extras for the camps, such as bouncy castle rentals, bringing in a glitter tattoo artist and face painter, and visits from Spiderman and Elsa!

Celebrating Canada camp will feature a special guest Sarah Paquette “Fancy Dancer”. Fancy Dancing is a flashy, colorful & highly energetic dance. The women’s shawl dance represents the opening of a cocoon when the butterfly emerges.
 
All Playroom Summer Camps will have access to our own Bouncy Castle. Thank you to the generous donation of the Childcare Committee.
