Summer children’s programs offer opportunities for fun, learning
The lazy days of summer bring often end up not being so lazy if Junior and his friends, out-of-school for the season, hang around the house looking for something fun to do to combat boredom.
The Town of Stony Plain has the solution! Each summer, the Municipality’s Community Services Department offers exciting learning programs for children between the ages of three and 11.
Designed for children between the ages of five and 11, these week-long camps offer a variety of fun activities, crafts and field trips. A wide range of themes mean no two weeks are ever the same, except for Friday afternoons, which will be spent cooling off in the Stony Plain Public Outdoor Swimming Pool. Before- and after-program daycare is available for $25 per child per session.
Jul. 4 – Aug. 26
Monday through Friday: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
COST: $90 per child per week
Registration is on a weekly basis, and children are welcome to attend all summer-long. A downloadable program guide, including information about weekly themes and activities, is available at www.stonyplain.com.
New for 2011, this program is created specifically for children ages three and four. Program leaders will provide a variety of fun activities for your child in these two-hour sessions.
