Summer Recreation News

After five exciting weeks, summer recreation camp ended on July 7. Throughout the entire duration of the five-week program, there were only two indoor days and the camp was never cancelled due to inclement weather.

To celebrate the end of the camp, campers were treated to two water slides, cotton candy and ice pops and the program’s first annual dance-off in the hockey rink.

Approximately 400 campers completed the program, making 2009 one of the most successful summers ever.
