H2O is offering day camps for kids during teacher strike days

With rotating strikes within B.C. schools over the past few weeks and the potential of an upcoming walkout, parents are left struggling to come up with options for their kids.

Over the past few strike days H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre has been running day camps designed to keep kids busy, active and learning and will be doing so for the upcoming rotating teachers strike set for Thursday June 12.

Staff are also preparing to start offering their summer day camps early in case of a full walkout which could take place as early as Monday, June 16.
