Our second summer running KinPark Kid’s Camp is back and is accepting applications. This summer will be full of more gardening and farming fun, as well as games, sports, crafts, and even children’s yoga at our KinPark Youth Urban Farm. Camp counselor, Alyssa Loucks, will be returning this summer, and the fantastic KinFarm Family Drop-in team will also be joining us as camp counselors.
Last year’s summer camp was incredible! Children took part in greenhouse gardening, harvesting fresh berries and veggies, and learning how to cook these edibles at Cowichan Green Community’s commercial kitchen. We even shared the harvest with the Duncan Food Bank, highlighting the importance of helping others. We also made many trips to the water park in downtown Duncan, and the Cowichan Aquatic Centre on Fridays for a dip in the pool. Another highlight from last year’s camp were the recycled crafts, making apple chip necklaces, and the many scavenger hunts where the children dug for treasure, and searched for clues from garden faeries, and magical farmers.
We are thrilled to bring back camp again this summer, and registration is starting now! If you are interested in registering this year for camp, please click here for the Registration Package!
