Kids can get creatively messy at The Reach’s summer camps

Camps focus on art, tinkering and history

The Reach is offering three summer camps this year.

“It’s going to be a total blast,” said Julie Epp, cultural programs assistant for The Reach, who will be leading the camps this summer.

Campers who just can’t get enough art in the day will love the Art Cart Masterpieces camp, July 21-25, where inspiration will come from the four exhibitions on from July 17 to Sept. 7.

If your camper loves to experiment then The Art of Tinkering is the camp for them. From July 28 to Aug. 1, campers will see how science, math, English, social studies and art all come together. This camp is all about play, so get ready to get a little messy.

The Reach will host History is Alive! from Aug. 11-15. This camp is all about the funny, fantastic stories of when Abbotsford was just a little village. Campers can see how great stories can make great art projects while learning along the way.

All camps run during their week from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Ages for each camp are between six and 12 years old.
