Rec centre provides beach Skedaddle while school's out

A skedaddle-wide trip will see kids swarm Willows Beach Wednesday (May 28) as schools in the district close for job action.

“What we’re offering right now is what we offer on pro D days, Skedaddle Camp,” said Erin Stockhill, acting community recreation programmer. “Any family in the community who requires care registers how they would for any of our programs, through reception and online.”

The program runs 8:15 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. and kids aged five to 12 are divvied into age groups for activities including snack time, games and a trip to Red Fern Park.

The groups will gather for a skedaddle-wide (all ages) bus trip to Willows Beach for a couple of hours in the afternoon.

 

Cost is $36 per child for the day for the camp at the main rec centre, 1975 Bee Street.
