Trail Rec programs ready to go if school isn’t

Trail Parks and Rec programs will continue if the ongoing teacher dispute continues into September.

Trail’s Parks and Recreation department has a plan for parents who don’t have one if school doesn’t go back on Tuesday.

Breanna Ford from Parks and Recreation, says the programs offered throughout the summer will continue into September.

“We are currently taking registrations for next week,” she said, adding that the future of the kids camp will depend on when school is back in.

“We are waiting until Wednesday of next week to take registrations for the following week (if we need it).”

The programs will continue as long as resources are available and there is a need from the public.

“The plan is, as long as we can have camp leaders, to keep going with it,” she said. “(Camp leaders) are actually really hard to come by because most of them (from the summer) are going back to university.”

The sessions will run in a similar way to the summer programming with a variety of activities.

“(On Tuesday) the kids will be doing something called a human knot, playing Simon Says, charades, capture the flag, making treasure boxes, doing a scavenger hunt, a water balloon toss and then playing in the water park,” she said.

“And that is all just in one day.”

Wednesday and Thursday are field trip days with skating in the morning and crafts in the afternoon.

For more information on the fall programs, to register, or to sign up to be a camp leader, call the Parks and Recreation office at 250-368-6484.
