Youth Week: Giant lazer tag event to celebrate

Youth Week will celebrate youth in the City of Campbell River

With the first week of May fast approaching, youth all over BC are gearing up for BC Youth Week 2012, and the expectations are high.

Youth Week will celebrate youth in the City of Campbell River, throughout British Columbia and in municipalities across Canada.

As part of the Youth Week line-up, local youth in grades 7 to 12 can experience the rush and excitement of Lazer Tag and then prepare to duck, dodge and dive in an epic game of dodgeball. All this excitement will take place at Strathcona Gardens on Wednesday, May 2 from 7-9 p.m. Tickets are $13 and are on sale now at Strathcona Gardens. Limited space available.

“Through their energy, involvement and enthusiasm, our young people help keep our community vibrant and healthy,” says Ross Milnthorp, the City’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture. “Youth Week celebrates these valued citizens and encourages youth participation in positive activities that strengthen the community.”

This event is a partnership between Strathcona Regional District and the City of Campbell River.
