2017 Day Camp
August 7 - 11
The Binscarth Park and Pool is excited to be partnering with the Russell & District Recreation Commission to host our 2017 Day Camp. This years’ summer camp is geared towards children 6-12 years old and will be held 1:00 - 4:00 each day. Each day of the camp will kick off with an activity to get your kids active and moving, followed by a snack, and a craft or activity that tests their creativity and imagination.
This year’s active component will be an introduction to the “Run Jump Throw Wheel (RJTW)” program which is a national program developed by Athletics Canada that teaches fundamental movement skills and develops physical literacy. It uses track and field inspired games, activities, and skill challenges to teach the fundamentals of running, jumping and throwing.
Many of our planned activities will be messy so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather each day and in clothes that are allowed to get dirty/messy as your child could be coming home with grass stains or paint stains from having fun at camp. We strongly recommend sending your child to camp in running shoes and with a filled water bottle each day.
Children must preregister, and registration is limited. The cost for Day Camp is $30 / week per child.
