A Summer of Discovery!

A Summer of Discovery!

For the 24th summer, campers had the opportunity to enjoy a ton of exciting and educational activities.

Summer is almost over, which means that Sun Youth’s Day camp has once again successfully helped hundreds of children from 5 to 12 years old spend a wonderful summer of discovery.

For the 24th consecutive year, children who participated in the Sun Youth Day camp had the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy a ton of exciting and educational activities under the supervision of qualified counselors. The children grouped by age (5-6 years, 7-8 years, 9-10 years and 11-12 years) were offered excursions, arts & crafts and theatre activities as well as picnics. They went on field trips including visiting amusement parks, local museums and aquatic parks. They also participated in sporting activities under the supervision of the Sun Youth Bike Patrol.

Once again, campers from 5 to 8 years of age were offered swimming and aquatic safety lessons from the Montreal Institute of Swimming. Through these weekly lessons, they were able to learn valuable skills so they could feel safe during aquatic activities. Once again, the Bike Man, an anonymous donor, offered his financial support to Sun Youth by providing life jackets.

This summer, Sun Youth also helped to feed the curiosity of its campers with its urban garden. Thanks to the unwavering support and weekly workshops of the Sentier Urbain and to the financial contribution of the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, the Sun Youth garden, located at its headquarters, has become a place where campers are able to learn about ecology in a fun and constructive ways. During the summer, they were able to grow vegetables and take care of them, all under the supervision of Sentier Urbain’s animator. Once again, a portion of the food grown by the campers was used to prepare their meals while the rest will go the Sun Youth food bank.

Sun Youth is truly grateful to its partners for their valuable help and support and would like to thank everyone who made this summer an unforgettable one!
