YMCA Calgary Daycamps have come to a close for the summer of 2014.
At Saddletowne, the campers spent the final week travelling around the world. They started in South America, and then headed off to Asia, Europe, Africa, and finally finished thing off in North America. During the week, campers tried new sports, created cool art, and learned a great deal about the variety of people and things that our great world has to offer. Now we are all returning home, heading back to school, back to the routine for the fall.
Over the summer, we saw thousands of campers across all of our branches take part in travel in their imagination, and visit new and exciting places all over the city. Many of these campers received the support they needed to take part in the camp experience from the “YMCA Strong Kids Campaign”.
There were 105 Saddletowne Turtles, as we called them, supported by donations through fun-filled events that raised just short of $500 here at the branch. Some of these events included a disco dance competition, medieval jousting, a treasure hunt and a mystery auction featuring “Mystery Cookies”, just to name a few. No matter the fun event, and no matter the branch, campers all over Calgary supported a great cause.
All of the campers are gearing up to head back to school, while YMCA’s across the city are busy gearing up for fall. Stay up to date on all of the exciting programs by following us on Twitter, liking us on Facebook, checking out our website, or by signing up for our newsletter.
Just because the summer is over doesn’t mean that the fun doesn’t stop. Fall program registration is open; the YMCA door are open and we want you to avoid the normal grind. Continue to travel this fall to meet your potential of healthy living with us!
