The Niverville Recreation team has a lot more options now that the Community Resource and Recreation Centre has opened its doors.

According to Cassandra Falk, Niverville’s Camps and Recreation Programmer, there are normally eight camps for kids each summer.

This year, though, her department is busy running 17 camps.

Falk says that the majority of these camps are now held at the CRRC, which has already proven to be the perfect venue. In fact, the young summer campers were the very first people to use the brand-new playground and fieldhouse.

“The kids have had the opportunity to play on the indoor playground, use sports equipment in the fieldhouse, run around on the running track, or head upstairs to do crafts and other camp activities in the multipurpose rooms,” says Falk. “Our culinary camp spent hours cooking in our community kitchen and loved it.”

The culinary camp, meant for kids between the ages of six and 12, has been one of the three most popular camps this year. The Junior NBA Basketball Camp for the same age group has also been a popular offering. The Kinder Camps, for those age three to six, have proven to be highly sought after as well.

The summer camps have filled up quickly and Falk says she’s receiving a lot of positive feedback from both children and their parents. She says that several families have gone on to purchase memberships to use the playground after their kids came home talking about how much fun they had at camp.

The Recreation Department’s main office is now located right inside the CRRC.

According to Falk, it’s been a bit of a learning curve for the team, but they love the atmosphere in the building. It’s also highly convenient to be onsite to answer questions and chat with the users of the facility.

Falk is excited to share that the last week of summer camps, being held August 23–27, still has some availability in the All Sports Camp, for ages six to 12. In this camp, kids will get to spend the week trying a variety of different sports like basketball, volleyball, floor hockey, dodgeball, and soccer, among others.

Kids who attend this camp will even get the chance to skate on the ice at the brand-new arena.

“We also encourage everyone to get their memberships online and book a time to use the indoor playground, walking track, or open gym space in the fieldhouse,” Falk adds. “They can do that by visiting our E-services website (see below) or in-person at the CRRC. Our Fall Leisure Guide will be available soon!”
