Canwood Summer Youth Program - 2019

by: SYP Coordinator Amy Wreford and Assistants Cassidy Anderson and Casey Kvinlaug

The Canwood Summer Youth Program had a great run again for the summer of 2019. With seven themed weeks and over fifty kids, ages 5-12, registered in the program, both the kids and us Coordinators had a blast. This year’s themes for the program were Hello Summer, Blast from the Past, SYP’s Game of Games, Water Whiz, Home on the Range, Sports Extravaganza and The Great Outdoors.

For ‘Hello Summer’ each day had a different theme. The days included Make Something Monday, Taste Something Tuesday, Wonder Something Wednesday, Thoughtful Thursday, and Friendship Friday. Each day had a specific craft and activity based on its theme, for example, on Thoughtful Thursday, the kids made summer greeting cards for the residents at Whispering Pine Place Nursing Home. This busy week was a great start to the summer for the kids.  

In ‘Blast from the Past’ week, the kids were transported back through time to the Ice Age, Prehistoric Times, Ancient Egypt and all the way to the ’50s. The kids went on several field trips, those of which included BINGO with the Canwood Elks, crafts and sing-a-longs with the Whispering Pine Place Residents and playing Lego and testing out 3D pens at the Canwood Public Library. This week was very busy, and there was never a dull moment at SYP.
