This summer the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Annapolis Valley are going to be hosting, Go Girls! and Game On! These are two gender oriented camps in Three Miles Plains, Windsor and Middleton areas and we are looking for 10-12 girls and boys from the ages of 10-14, who may not always be able to afford camp and really need an opportunity to express themselves safely while having fun, getting to know others, staying active and promoting a positive sense of self.
The camps are free of charge and we provide the campers with snacks and lunch. All we ask is that parents and guardians send their campers with comfortable clothing, sneakers and a water bottle.
Below is the letter to parents and you can download the application form here.
Dear Parent or Guardian,
Game On and Go Girls are exciting mentoring programs being offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Annapolis Valley for boys and girls. The goal of each program is to provide children and youth with information and support to make informed choices about active living, balanced eating and feeling good!
A Group of 10 boys and a group of 10 girls from the ages of 10-14 will each be paired with two-three volunteer mentors. The program will consist of 5 day long sessions to be held at a local school, community center or other community location as indicated. Each session will be fun-filled, active, and informative. The program is provided completely free of charge and includes healthy snacks and lunch.
Running shoes and appropriate physical activity attire will be required. While it is our wish that every child would have the opportunity to participate, space is limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Please return your application as promptly as possible.
As part of the program, participants and parents may be asked to complete an evaluation form telling us about their experience with the program. This information can be used to make program improvements and determine impact.
Please indicate on the attached form if you would like your son or daughter to take part in Game On and Go Girls summer camp. Please do not hesitate to contact Big Brothers Big Sisters at 902.678.8641 if you have any questions.
Thank you for your interest in our programs.
