ALEX HOUSE: Busy times at Camp A

As always, the camp was a whirlwind of activity in December.

A big bouquet to the many volunteers who helped us in so many ways. That extra help is vital and very much appreciated. The new year brings new programs, and some returning favourites.

• Explore with Me is interactive program for parents and children ages 15 months to five years that introduces the Reggio Emilia approach to learning, inspiring children’s natural curiosity. Enjoy hands-on, interactive experiences and a song and story time each week

The next session runs Fridays, Jan. 31 to  March 7, 10-11:30 a.m. For information call 604-535-0015 ext 229.
