A sum­mer camp that stands out

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

Se­ven years ago, re­crea­tion ma­na­ger Claire Des­chênes was com­mis­sio­ned to set up a sum­mer camp at CFB Ba­got­ville. The ob­jec­tives were simple: to en­sure that chil­dren en­joy them­selves sa­fe­ly and to have the trust of their pa­rents. Au­gust 11th was the last day of the 2017 sum­mer camp for the 128 par­ti­ci­pa­ting chil­dren af­ter se­ven bu­sy weeks. Ba­got­ville camp stands out from eve­ry point of view and starts with the se­lec­tion of per­son­nel. All mem­bers of the sum­mer camp team are high­ly qua­li­fied. Du­ring the sum­mer, chil­dren have the op­por­tu­ni­ty to par­ti­ci­pate in ac­ti­vi­ties in va­rious areas of the Sa­gue­nay- Lac- St- Jean re­gion as well as par­ti­ci­pate in re­crea­tio­nal ac­ti­vi­ties of all kinds. This year, as the theme was ' Ex­plo­rers', the PSP fit­ness team took the op­por­tu­ni­ty to ex­pe­riment with va­rious mi­li­ta­ry tasks for chil­dren. They were even able to try out the FORCE test and the fi­re­figh­ter test: a great mo­ment of pride. Ac­cor­ding to Ms. Des­chênes, "the suc­cess of such a pro­gram is due in large part to the sup­port of the mi­li­ta­ry com­mu­ni­ty, which contri­butes to brin­ging un­for­get­table ex­pe­riences to chil­dren. Thank you al­so to the 3 Wing / CFB Ba­got­ville au­tho­ri­ties for their trust and sup­port.
