Sun Youth has had an­other very suc­ces­ful sum­mer

Montreal Times - - Front Page -

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 SunYouth 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!
