SUBJECT: Grenfell: Exciting, enjoyable and educational Activity Camps underway at Grenfell College

DATE: July 21

          More than 500 children and youth have registered in Grenfell’s 34th season of summer Activity Camps.
          “We actually had to add two camps in Summer Bonanza, and Grenfell’s So You Thing You Can Dance, bringing our number of camps to 20,” said Chris Nicholson, activity camp supervisor.
          The camps kicked off on June 28 with Environmental Explorers, Works of Art and Summer Bonanza.
          Campers will meet new friends, receive instruction from top coaches and instructors, and take part in other social activities, such as games, field trips and swimming. Each camper will receive a crested Activity Camp T-shirt and a group photo and a certificate of participation for each camp.
          ”About 13,000 campers have attended Grenfell’s Activity Camps since the college opened in 1975,” said Marilyn Forward, program developer at Community Education and College Relations. “There’s a reason for our popularity: we provide talented instructors and coaches, creating a summer environment in which kids will love to learn. Plus children get to experience learning on a university campus – an enrichment opportunity most people don’t experience until high school graduation.”
          Other offerings include Volleyball, Basketball, Stay in Sync, CSI Camp, Musical Theatre and Mini Sports.
