This summer, the James Bay Community Project is offering a program for girls -- with a difference. The girls participating get to choose what they want to do!
This initiative is aimed at girls aged 10 to 14, going into Grades six to nine this fall. These are girls in middle school who might be a little too old for camp or childcare and a little too young to be working this summer.
This will be a chance to get together with other girls, make new friends, and try something fresh. You will have input on the choice of possible activities for the group, including crafts, art, jewelry making, baking, cooking, meditation, board games, and walks/ drives around town. (Snacks and bus tickets will be supplied.) There might also be a chance to learn something, such as CPR, first aid, or FoodSafe basics.
The program will run for four weeks on Wednesdays from 1pm to 2:30, starting July 24 and going to August 21. It’s free, but registration is required. Please contact Janessa Serediuk at 250-415-7721 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
