Langley Township planning day camps next week, if there is no school

Camps will keep kids busy in the event of school being cancelled due to the teachers' strike.

Back to school may be delayed due to the ongoing teachers’ strike this September, but the Township of Langley has a number of ways to keep kids engaged and active.

A series of day camps that will help elementary school students stay busy and have fun is being offered by the Township’s Recreation, Culture, and Parks Division.

Kids can play a variety of supervised games and enjoy activities at local recreation centres, should the ongoing job action delay their return to the classroom.

School’s Out Day Camp for kids aged five to 12 will run Tuesday, Sept. 2 to Friday, Sept. 5, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Willoughby Community Centre and Walnut Grove Community Centre. Cost is $28.75 per day. For an additional fee, “Day Camp Plus” is available, allowing kids to be dropped off at 8 a.m. and picked up at 5 p.m.

School’s Out Day Camp for children aged six to 12 will also be offered at the W.C. Blair Recreation Centre during the first week of September, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at $28.75 per day.

Langley Centennial Museum and Fort Langley National Historic Site have teamed up to offer Pioneer Pupils, an educational day camp for kids in Grades 4 to 6. The history, art, and science-based camp runs Tuesday, Sept. 2 to Friday, Sept. 5, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cost is $40 per day and children must register for the full four-day week.

To register for these day camps, visit RecExpress.ca online, call 604-533-6086, or call or visit any Township of Langley recreational or cultural centre.

Additional day camps will be scheduled by the Township on a week-to-week basis, if the teachers’ dispute continues.
