If you’re till trying to figure out how to fill the days for young ones at home over March Break, ACAP Cape Breton is hosting a free eco day camp jam-packed with green activities, crafts, outdoor fun, experiments, and physical activity. The camp will take place from March 16-20 at Oceanview Education Centre, Glace Bay.
Children are becoming more aware of environmental issues and ACAP’s Eco Kid Day Camp aims to make these issues kid-friendly, relatable to day-to-day life, and entertaining. Each day will be a different theme and consist of eco-minded activities, recycled material crafts, experiments, games, healthy snacks, and more.
“Our camps are always fun and inspiring,” notes Susan King, Executive Director at ACAP Cape Breton. “It’s amazing how much the children will learn in just one week. They come to understand why fresh water is so important and how we can protect it, the 3R’s (reduce, reuse, and recycle) and how they can take all this new information and implement it into their everyday routines”.
ACAP’s Eco Kid Day Camp runs the week of March Break (March 16-20) from 9AM-12PM for children in grades one to five. With funding generously provided by the East Cape Breton Community Health Board, ACAP Cape Breton is able to provide this camp at no cost to parents. “We are pleased to expand our eco-day camp to other communities and encourage families to call and register as spaces are limited,” comments King.
