The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford is hosting art day camps during the teachers' strike.

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.
