For the Advance

The summer is here and with the kids being home from school many parents are wondering what activities they can find for their kids.

The Town of Castor recreation department is stepping in and helping parents answer that question with its second summer of eight-week day camps provided by Camp Beaver Tail. The camp, which ran for nine weeks last year, is packed full of programming for kids of different ages all summer long.

Emma Rae Bowyer, one of the staff leaders of the camp, said that there will be, “Everything for everybody,” during the weeks of programming, adding, “We have a new theme every week.”

The themes will vary from a mini Olympics in early July to winding up the summer with a world-wide tour of life and culture around the globe, all without leaving the town. The kids participating in the camp will have plenty of opportunity to swim as well, with pool time added to the schedule every day, weather permitting.

“Right now, we have at least five kids per week already registered for the camp,” said Natasha Bozek, Town of Castor recreation director. “We are aiming for 10 kids a week, with 15 to 20 being the maximum.”

The day camp, which is being run out of the curling rink, will run from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m. for eight weeks starting July 9.
