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.

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.
