EcoGarden brings back Kids Camp

Fernie parents and their children were polishing up their garden tools this week.

Fernie parents and their children were polishing up their garden tools this week when confirmation of the 2012 EcoGarden Kids Camp was released.

The news was shared with the community after Tammy Ogden, Community Liaison with Teck Coal, notified the EcoGarden Kids Camp Team that their funding application was successful.

“The EcoGarden is excited to be able to offer this camp again in 2012,“ said camp coordinator Dawn Deydey.

“Everyone who was involved last year, from kids to councilors, had an amazing week playing in the garden.”

2011 was the first year of the EcoGarden Kids Day Camp program and it was a resounding success.  Both the children that attending the week-long day camp, and their parents could not say enough good things about their camp experiences, and their hopes for the program to run in 2012.

The camp brought together crafts, stories, activities, snacks from the garden, caring for plants and games with special camp visitors that brought music, wildlife education and special outdoor art experiences.  It will all take place again this year, outdoors in the garden.

Registration for the EcoGarden Kids Camp will take place at the City of Fernie’s Spring Registration Fair on April 4 and 5 at the Community Centre.  Parents are encouraged to register soon as there are limited spaces available.

The Spring Registration Fair also offers the community the opportunity to learn more about volunteer opportunities at the EcoGarden, to register for the upcoming Keeping Food Real workshops and plot holder registration.

More information about the Fernie Community EcoGarden and the many programs offered is available on their website at www.ecogarden.ca
