Imagination Park back for the summer

Imagination Park is on track to bring another fun and educational summer to children from ages six to 12.

Imagination Park is on track to bring another fun and educational summer to children from ages six to 12.

Organizer Athena Beauvillier said this year, they have some special events planned for the kids and there are many spots left for most of them.

“The second week we’re going to Moose Meadows, so we go on the hay rides and there’s some animals out there,” Beauvillier explained.

“We get to do crafts and there’s a lunch planned there for everyone.”

The next week, Imagination Park does a whacky water slide day at LeBourdais Park.

“The kids get to go down the hill with soap and water and we provide lunch for the kids,” Beauvillier said.

There’s a kids carnival planned, during which some carnival games are set up for the kids.

“In the end, the kids use their tickets, which they all receive, to pick out a prize,” Beauvillier explained.

The next week, the camp’s special event is Corn Meal and Maze.

“There are hay rides there too and a scavenger hunt,” Beauvillier said.

“The kids get to check out this old house that’s been there for a long time and they just love going in and out of the corn maze.”

The last week, Beauvillier’s favorite, they have the Rec Centre Sleepover.

“The kids get to play games in the dark, run around, play bingo, they get to dance around, go swimming, there’s pizza and then a McDonald’s breakfast in the morning.

“Those are always fun.

“The first week, we bring the kids to the corn maze and they get to try it out and go on a hay bail ride, which they always love,” Beauvillier said.

The camp is also split into different weeks, each with its own theme.

“The first week’s theme is I Am Canadian, so we’re doing a tour of the fire station and doing some activities there,” Beauvillier explained.

The second week is Mexican Mayhem and the third is Quesnel’s Got Talent.

“The kids enjoy that one,” Beauvillier said.

“We do a lot of karaoke.”

The fourth week’s theme is Mad Scientists, where kids have the opportunity to explore their inner creator.

“The kids get to do experiments and we sometimes partner up with CNC so the kids can use the lab there,” Beauvillier said.

The next week, kids get to explore time travel and learn about cave men, pirates and the wild west.

Athletics dominate the sixth week with the theme Sports of all Sorts.

Kids get the chance to stay active that week with non–stop sports action.

If you feel like Christmas is too far away, the next week might be perfect for your child, August Christmas.

The week is complete with a Christmas tree, some presents and lots of food.

Week eight is all about game shows and kids can see how they would do on popular game shows such as Wheel Of Fortune, Deal  Or No Deal, Who Wants to be a Millionaire and The Price is Right.

The last week’s theme is Summer Survivor.

The camp runs from July 2 to August 31 and kids from age six to 12 are welcome, although some exceptions are made.

“We do accept five year olds if they have completed kindergarten,” Beauvillier explained.

The camp runs from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., but Beauvillier said arrangements can be made if you need care before of after those hours.

For information, call Beauvillier 250-992-8200.
