Abbotsford Summer Camp sponsor helps send kids to camp

Bulletins

ABBOTSFORD – For a second year in a row, Miller Pearson Consulting is sponsoring up to 30 Abbotsford children to attend a week of Abbotsford Summer Camps free of charge.

Eligible Abbotsford children will have the opportunity to participate in sports, swimming, outdoor adventure, canoeing, kayaking, skateboarding, scootering, team games, conservation learning, healthy eating education, arts, theatre, dance, science, magic training, and more. Kids will also have the opportunity to engage with local organizations and businesses on site at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre and learn about pollinators, engineering, animal adaptations, magic tricks and farming. 

Access to a sponsored summer camp spot can be arranged by a teacher, counsellor, elder, child and youth worker, social worker or other community professional who knows about the child’s unique situation and need for support to attend camp. These community professionals are asked to e-mail Sfederspiel@abbotsford.ca for application information. Sponsored day camp spots will be first come, first served until all spots are filled. 

Up to 550 kids attend Abbotsford Summer Camps yearly at Abbotsford Recreation Centre, Matsqui Recreation Centre, Mill Lake Park, Gardner Park and Fish Trap Creek Park, Albert Dyck Lake and local skate parks. To register, camps cost between $155 and $190 per week, depending on the camp selected.

The City of Abbotsford thanks Miller Pearson Consulting for their generous donation, as well as Archways Community Services and Abbotsford School District for facilitating applications. Miller Pearson Consulting hopes this new initiative with the City of Abbotsford will foster other local businesses to sponsor more children to attend camp in the future.

More information about Summer Camps and how to register can be found on the City of Abbotsford website.
