Lagoonies 2015 Summer Camps Starting Soon!
Jun 14, 2015
The Lagoonies Club is a weekly drop-in day camp for kids aged 5 – 13 at the Iris Griffith Centre. Younger children, if accompanied by a parent or guardian, are also welcome. We host the day camp every Wednesday and Saturday during the summer from 10am to 2pm. For the 2015 summer season, our first camp date is July 4th, and our last is August 15th.
With our fun and instructive activities, Lagoonies introduces kids to the weird and wonderful world of wetlands, builds artistic and scientific skills, and encourages everyone to respect the natural surroundings and become future stewards of the environment. A typical day with the Lagoonies might include:
- Pond dipping for aquatic insects and amphibians
- Short hikes around our beautiful 10 hectare property, or up the Suncoaster Trail to take in the incredible vista of Ruby Lake!
- Playing nature-inspired games like “Sapsucker” and our popular Food Chain game!
- Small arts and crafts projects
Each day with Lagoonies there is a new theme to focus on the many exciting things to learn about the Sunshine Coast. From Marine Mania to Marsh Monsters, there is something new to learn every day! See our events page for each week’s theme! Pack a lunch, come dressed for the weather, and drop-in! Registration is a suggested $10 donation, and is free for those with a Family Membership. You are welcome to drop off your kids, or stay and join in on the fun. For more information, or to make special arrangements, please contact: , or call 604.883.9201.
