Canwood Summer Youth Program

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


Canwood Summer Youth Program had a great run again for the summer of 2018. 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 A Storytelling Summer, Adventureland, Wet and Wild, In and Around the Community, Where in the World, Anything Goes and All Good Things Come to an End.

SwimmingFor ‘A Storytelling Summer’ each day was a different Disney Book/Movie. The days included Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Beauty & the Beast, Cars and Toy Story. Each day had a certain craft and activity based on that movie or book. Also, this week we went to the Canwood Public Library where we got a chance to try out mechanical robots.

In ‘Adventureland’ week the kids were tested on their skills of treasure hunting, scavenger hunting, survivor tactics, obstacles and minute-to-win-it activities. During this week each got prizes for participating in all of the fun filled activities. This week was very busy and there was never a dull moment at SYP.

As part of our ‘Wet and Wild’ week the program made a trip to the Shellbrook Pool for a pizza lunch and a full afternoon of swimming. We also had a Slip & Slide at the school and also went to Whispering Pine Place for a water fight. Although the weather didn’t quite hold up for most of this week the kids still had a blast on the days in which we could go outside and have a water fight/water games.
