A special thank you to the staff of the Green Shack Playground Program, which is very popular program which has been running for over 30 years in Edmonton! They had an activity packed day for the kids to enjoy, which also included the Flying Eagle Program.

Today the children learned how to smudge with sage, they also learned how to play double ball, and got to make mini headdress out of beads and safety pins.

For camp #1 we have several field trips planned:

July 7th: Swimming at Terwillegar Community Rec Centre

July 10th: Giovanni Spray Park

July 13: Jurassic Forest!

July 16: Commonwealth Swimming pool

July 17: K-Days Parade followed by a BBQ at Giovanni Park

In addition to the events planned, we also have sports day, movie/green-shack day,  and arts/crafts/baking day!

We are overwhelmed by the incredible support from various programs by The City of Edmonton and local organizations who are dedicated to Edmonton’s Inner City Children!

Edmonton Kubota and Edmonton Rush 1

We were honored to be part of this day.  Our kids were so excited and very appreciative of all of your generosity.  The day gave our children an opportunity to be kids in all the right ways!!  They were each given a wonderful gift supplied by Edmonton Kubota, and they were given time to learn and play lacrosse with the players as well as the cheer team from the Edmonton Rush.  Another great example of local business and sports team reaching out and making an impact on the children of our community.

Thank you so much for the opportunity!  GO RUSH GO!
