School's Out Summer Camp a Big SHARE'd Success
Posted on July 28, 2023 by
Summer camp fun! The School's Out Summer Camps for refugee children have been a huge hit this July! Over 50 kids attended the week-long camps playing games, learning about Canada's people and culture, making friends and great memories, and enjoying healthy lunches and snacks. Thanks to grants from the United Way of BC and the City of Coquitlam's Spirit Grant, kids have been having fun and enjoying social, emotional, and physical well-being, so they're ready to start the school year in the Fall.
This was the very first year that SHARE Family and Community Services was able to offer free summer camps for refugee children and youth! "It was so heartwarming to see them smile from ear to ear and just amazing to see all of the different community members, businesses and service providers come out and support!", said Jodie Wickens, Director of Programs and Services at SHARE Family and Community Services.
