COTR Kimberley summer camps are backPosted: June 21, 2012

College of the Rockies Kimberley Campus is once again hosting a variety of exciting summer camps for kids.  This year participants will have an opportunity to attend one camp all summer long or to participate in shorter, theme-specific options.

The Summer in the City Camp for kids aged 6 to 11 includes seven full weeks of fun and activities.  Taking place July 9 to August 24, this camp runs Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m and. will include a celebration of the Olympics, a tour around Treasure Island and a chance to soak each other, and the camp leaders, with super-duper soakers.

Participants in the Camp may get the opportunity to take part in visits to the library, the pool, Kimberley Gymnastics, the Dance Academy and Centre 64.  And what better way to end each week than with Zumba Fridays?

As an Education student at the University of Lethbridge, Camp Coordinator, Tessa Rokosh, is looking forward to sharing her experience and knowledge. She says, “We will be packing a ton of excitement into every day of this camp with something for everyone to enjoy. This is a great option for a fun and safe summer for the children of Kimberley!”

For those unable to commit to a longer, full-day camp, the Kimberley campus, in partnership with local organizations, will be offering a series of shorter camps as well.  With Creative Kids Summer Arts, Fashion Camp, Dance, Gym & Swim and a Summer Theatre School, there are a lot of options for almost any interest.  These camps will be held at partner organizations throughout Kimberley.

“We are thrilled to be partnered with Centre 64, Kimberley Gymnastics, Kimberley Dance Academy and Kimberley Summer Theatre to offer these exciting summer camps,” commented Josh Lockhart, Kimberley Campus Program Assistant. “Collaborating with community groups gives us the opportunity to enhance the camp experience tremendously.”

Senior camp leader, Kristen Murrell, is a seasoned veteran when it comes to summer camps, having attended Blue Lake for several years.  Currently a student at Emily Car University of Art & Design, this Kimberley native and outdoor enthusiast has worked with children of all ages.  She says, “I have a passion for camps and for working with children.  I am sure this year’s summer camp experience will be one the kids will remember.”
