Summer holidays are here and there will be an abundance of fun filled events happening right here in Barriere. Summer Camps at The Ridge provided by the North Thompson Volunteer Centre, Barriere and Area Literacy Outreach, and the Netball Association will be starting July 6, and running until mid-August with a great variety of programs planned. The camps are just a twoonie per day, and are made possible by the generous support of the District of Barriere, Yellowhead Community Services, TNRD Area “0”, the North Thompson Communities Foundation, the Lower North Thompson Forest Society, and the Barriere Fire Department.

The first week of Summer Camps is hosted by Thompson Valley Players and will run July 6-10, from 11 a.m. -3 p.m.  This camp will be for all those aspiring young actors who like to perform on the stage, but the program will also include behind the stage opportunities such as sound and lights, and stage direction.

Improv and creative writing will also be a very big part of the experience.  The children will write skits, plan stage direction and then will present a performance at the Bandshell for the Communities in Bloom event on July 19. Suggested ages for the camp is 8 to 15 years, but some exceptions are being made so please call the office at the North Thompson Volunteer Centre (NTVIC), 250-672-0033, or Beverly at 260-819-5684 for more info.rmation.  NTVIC will also have a booth on Canada Day at the Bandshell from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., with registration forms and information on all the camps being held at The Ridge this summer for ages as young as kindergarten.  Kids, don’t be shy, get signed up for a week of entertainment at the Thompson Valley Players Camp 2015.
