With school out for summer, it is time once again for the Kitimat Museum and Archives Summer of Adventure programs for youth. It runs from July the 6th to August 14th. The programs run for ages three to five in the morning and for ages six to nine in the afternoon.
“We’re going to be going on some field trips with the kids, doing some games, doing some crafts. Learning through different things here,” said Kenna Sweet, summer student with the Museum.
Each week has a different theme. The themes include wildlife, world cultures, outdoor adventure and fun in the workplace.
This year will see some new programs and some old ones as well. They have added a trip to the golf course in addition to field trips to the fire hall, police station, giant spruce and hikes. One of the summer students, Presley Carvalho will be putting on an art program.
“I’ll be teaching them how to use different shapes in order to make human bodies and other things. Basic circles squares, triangles, to just start drawing thing. Cartoons though,” said Carvalho.
The programs do cost money to enroll. Museum members get a discount.
