Niverville Summer Camp Registrations Spike


As summer approaches the halfway mark here in Niverville, the town’s summer camps are also halfway over—and couldn’t be going more smoothly. 

Niverville Recreation is on its second year of running summer camps in-house. To do this, the department has hired two summer students to plan, organize, and implement the camps. As of the end of July, camp coordinator Jane Fast has seen many returning faces from last year, and many more new campers.

July has been full of fun and excitement, with outings to an escape room, the Steinbach pool, and Fun Mountain. Hollywood Acting Camp made a short film with 13 actors taking the stage, each with individual roles. The campers of Just Girls Camp created fairy gardens and prepared their own homemade ice cream. Creativity Camp started off with a bang with Pirates vs. Robots and ended the week with a spa day, creating bath bombs and lip scrub.

Registration is up by 38 percent compared to last year, and the department still hopes to see more children register in August. After the August long weekend, several new camps kick off. The Amazing Race Camp (for ages 10 to 13) will take the lead, followed by the CSI Detective Camp (for ages 7 to 12). Ending the summer is the Mini-Explorers Camp (for ages 3–6). 

The camp leaders have been fantastic this year, along with the many volunteers who have put in hours helping the camps to go off without a hitch.
