Born to Shine Summer Day Camp 2022 Report

posted in: Born to Shine Report | 0

We are thankful for a successful and fruitful camp for the inner-city kids in East Vancouver. This year we have 38 campers, 16 camp leaders/helpers, and 2 camp directors. This year we were able to do a field trip to Maplewood Farm which was a nice place for the kids to play with animals together. The weather was very hot during this week, we were flexible with our schedule so we can take the kids to the nearby park with water spray a few times. We also used the downstairs parking lot to cool off one time for lesson time. We also organized a visit to the nearby Strathcona library with a special program organized for 2 age groups, some kids even took out books while they are there. I really appreciate the camp leaders this year as they kept going even if they are tired, and they are a great group of young people to work with.

Again, we cannot thank you enough for the camp leaders who volunteered their time and efforts to make this camp possible! The objective of the camp in providing a service and a meaningful time for the kids that is needed very much for inner-city families in the East Vancouver area. This summer camp is a partnership project between CRRS Project Shine and VUM (Vancouver Urban Ministries)
