The Day Camp is back for a 23rd year, offering unrivalled opportunities to partake in exciting activities.
Innovative, the day camp program seeks to continually improve the service it provides its children, and again this year, the benefits are continuing to show. Grouped by age (5-6 years, 7-8 years, 9-10 years and 11-12 years), campers experience each week a field trip including visiting amusement parks, local museums, and beaches, in addition to a regular regimen of sporting activities, swimming, arts & crafts, theatre, gardening and regular walks in the park and summer picnics. Campers are also supported with breakfast foods, a daily hot lunch, and snacks throughout the day, providing them with a healthy nutrition that ensures a positive energy to last the whole summer full of activities.
Over the years, Sun Youth has introduced new initiatives to increase the knowledge in environmentalism. Since 2013 Sun Youth has introduced a community garden at its headquarters on Saint-Urbain. The continued support and expertise required to maintain this project are provided by Sentier Urbain. Through the garden, day campers will have the opportunity to learn about their environment, nature, and the growth of plant life in a sophisticated and constructive way, while also contributing fresh vegetables towards both preparations of their meals and Sun Youth’s emergency food bank.
Lastly the Day Camp’s teen lounge will undergo a transformation this summer thanks to the great people from MU who will be painting an indoor mural with the children over several weeks this summer. This will help fulfill MU’s mission which is to ”beautify the city of Montreal by creating murals that are anchored in local communities… to trigger a social transformation and to turn Montreal into an open-air art MUseum!”
Sun Youth’s Day Camp is back in full swing for a 23rd year, offering youngsters from the Greater Montreal Area unrivalled opportunities to partake in exciting activities, make friends and learn about each other and their world. From June 27th to August 19th, 90 children aged 5 to 12 years old will be given a chance to experience a vibrant summer, particularly those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds, and who otherwise would not have this type of opportunity.
