Some local groups are holding day camps this week during the teachers’ strike.
The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford (32388 Veterans Way) hosts drop-in art camps for kids ages six to 12. The camps will run while teachers are on strike.
Two camps per day will take place on Wednesdays, Fridays and Mondays from 9 to 11:45 a.m. and from 12:15 to 3 p.m.
They are held on a drop-in basis, with payment for each day being taken the morning of the camp. Kids may attend both camps each day, with care being provided during the 30-minute break between the sessions.
The cost is $20 per child for a half day or $40 for the full day.
Doors open at 8:30 a.m. and close at 3:30 p.m. sharp each day. Registration can be done in person at The Reach or by calling 604-864-8087.
Also offering day camps during the strike is the EcoDairy on Sumas Way. “Dairy Drop-ins” run Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 to 11:45 a.m. for ages four to seven and from 12:15 to 3 p.m. for ages eight to 12.
Cost for each session is $18 per child. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a date or visit ecodairy.ca for more information.
Abbotsford Dance Center hosts a fine arts camp at least for the first two weeks of September or until the strike is over.
The camp for ages five to 13 runs Sept. 2 to 5 at a cost of $120 and Sept. 8 to 12 for $150. Sessions are from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day. Daily enrolment is also being taken at a cost of $31.50 per day.
