New this year: Basic skills camp: age four to Grade 3 – August 17, 18 and 19  from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  $20

This camp will focus on hand eye coordination, ball handling practice, rules and fun games to help build skills.

NTVIC Summer Day Camp: NTVIC’s After School Program will run as a summer program starting on July 4, 2011. This program is for children five to 11 years of age, is a fee for service program, and will be open Mondays and Tuesdays 7:00 to 6:00 p.m.; and Wednesday through Friday from 6:30 to 6:00 p.m. The fee is $40 for a full day (over four hours) and $28 for a half day. Pre-registration is required (even if not using regularly) for staffing reasons, but occasional drop in will be available if your child is on file. This is due to licensing requirements such as immunization records etc. that must be on file for any child to attend.  This program was made possible through support from the North Thompson Communities Foundation and the Hamber Foundation.

NTVIC will again be running the Before/After School Program starting September 12, 2011. The program is open to all school aged children from Kindergarten  to 11 years old. Registration will be required for some or all days with a maximum capacity of 24 per day. Due to a reduction in funding, the cost will be four dollars per day. This has been made possible through support from the Leon and Thea Koerner Foundation.

Also please don’t forget to come out and enjoy the “Interior Savings Moonlight Movie Night” benefitting the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre. This event will take place on Thursday August 18 in Fadear Park at the Bandshell featuring the movie ‘Rio’. Movie start time will depend on darkness approximately 8:30 pm.

Family fun will start at 6:00 p.m. with games, races, face painting, 50/50 and more. There will be a concession on hand with hot dogs and burgers for dinner as well as all your favourite movie snacks. This event is free to the public, but as it is a fundraiser a donation of $2 to $5 is recommended.

If you are interested in volunteering at this community event please call the Centre at 250-672-0033.  All funds raised will go towards NTVIC programs.

Have a Safe and Happy summer!
