Inaugural Summer Camp Program a Huge Success

BASC Programming offered through the summer months

Under the direction of Kim Furutani and with the support of the SCCS BASC staff, a summer camp program was offered for our students.

The 6 week program which ran five days per week through July and August set St. Charles Catholic Church as its “home base”. The participants were very appreciative of the air conditioned church basement!

Each morning the students and staff met at the Church before heading off into the community. Activities included days spent at various spray pads complete with water fights, lots of sun and picnic lunches; trips to the Fringe Festival children’s events; visits to the Forks and the Assiniboine Park where feeding the ducks and birds become a favorite pastime. Although for the most part the weather cooperated, some days were spent inside baking, attending museums, playing miniature golf, and creating arts and crafts.

The students loved being at camp with their best friends from school; the staff enjoyed planning back-to-back fun days with the students; the parishioners were pleased to experience our school community first-hand on a daily basis; and parents cannot say enough about how smoothly, efficiently and professionally it operated. No doubt about it, this first summer camp experience was a huge success for our SCCS community!
