The City of Campbell River Recreation Department is offering two more Sybil Andrews Art Camps this summer.

The next one – called “Best Friends Forever” – happens July 30 – August 3.  Art and craft projects for this camp include: treasure boxes, picture frames, paper making, cup flower arrangement, sketch pad marbled cover, scrapbooking and more. In addition, kids will have daily outdoor activities such as croquet, balloon badminton, bocce ball, beach ball volleyball, Frisbee golf, nature walks and scavenger hunts.

Programs are held at Sybil Andrews Cottage and cost $75 per person.

August 20-24, 7 to 11-year-old children can attend full or half-day camps. The theme “Blast from the Past” will allow them to go back in time and experience culture through arts, crafts and games of the past. In the morning, kids will make a record snack bowl, tabletop soccer game, bird house and more. The afternoon kids will make a hovercraft, luminaries, drum and more. The sport activities will include learning and playing jacks, hop scotch, Frisbee, board games, hovercraft races, marble games, kite flying and skipping games.

The cost of both camps is $75 per person.
