The Great Spring Break Adventure

Monday, March 27th to Friday, March 31st, 2017

Presented by Abundant Life Baptist Church

Our purpose is to provide a practical, safe and fun environment in which children and their families can have a positive, worry free Spring Break.

Children in grades 1-6 are invited to join us for a week of adventure that includes:

  • Children’s Museum
  • A Theatrical Production
  • Fort Whyte Alive
  • Games
  • Snacks
  • Swimming
  • Bible Stories
  • And More!!

The Great Spring Break Adventure is staffed by volunteers who have been checked through the Manitoba Child Abuse Registry.

Schedule

Each day roughly 1/5 of the children will be allowed in Extras - Game Room to play with air hockey, foosball, Nintendo, etc. They will also be involved with Spotlight Drama. The rest of the children will be in the main auditorium drawing or playing with a variety of toys and games.

These activities the children will rotate through, roughly half of the group at a time.

The Electrical Museum can only accommodate about 30 people at a time. So half the group will be there on Monday and the other half will be at the Forrest Nickerson Theatre watching a play. On Tuesday the groups will switch.

What do I do if my child has allergies?

Be sure to advise us of this on your child’s registration form so that we can make alternate arrangements.

How do you safely take 40+ children swimming?

Quite simply, we follow the pool rules. Including making sure those who need to are wearing PFDs, are grouped with a specific leader in ratios set out by the pool and that the lifeguard’s word is final. Beside the staff in the water we also have staff on the deck doing constant visual checks that every child is accounted for during our stay at the pool. We have a check list with every child’s name and we check off that we have seen each child, when we get through the list; we start again, for the entire time we are at the pool. That’s why we don’t go swimming till later in the week so that we know your child well enough to recognize them when they’re all wet! For further details check this link.

What does my child need to bring to Day Camp?
  • Each day they will need to bring a bag lunch. We will provide two snacks each day.
  • Wednesday we will be going to Fort Whyte Alive. Please dress for the weather that day as much of our time there will be spent outside.
  • Friday we are going to the Steinbach Aquatic Centre so a swimsuit, PFD if you wish, towel and quarter for the locker would all be good to send along. It should be noted that the pool has a rule that no cotton is allowed.

We have plenty of toys and games for children to play with when they arrive. It would be best if they do not bring toys, games, or electronics from home as we cannot be responsible for them and we wouldn’t want them to get mixed up with the things we have here or with some else’s items.
