National Child Day events at Community Centre today

The Community Centre will be bursting at the seams with an exciting array of child-friendly activities

The National Child Day celebration at the Community Centre today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will celebrate and showcase our community’s commitment to fundamental human rights for children including “the right to enjoy their childhood freely.”

National Child Day is a Canada-wide celebration of two historic events for children: the adoption of the United Nations’ Declaration on the Rights of the Child (1959) and Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989).

“Campbell River can be very proud of its support for children and parents,” says Family Place coordinator Joyce McMann.  “National Child Day Celebrations at the Community Centre will highlight many of the organizations and programs that add to the community,” says Leah Knutson, Recreation Programmer for the City of Campbell River.

On November 23, the Community Centre will be bursting at the seams with an exciting array of child-friendly activities.  Listen to stories, explore the world of safety, play in a cardboard city, enjoy the healthy snacks and take home some really cool crafts.

Admission is free. Bring the family and enjoy the world of childhood together.
