Just to keep you updated, I have not planned any Creatures of Curiosity programs for this summer due to the number of students who are staying on with me for summer tutoring.
However, I do have the Regency Care-A-Van still booked for Wednesdays in August. So, I may still be able to plan a few last minute camps for August! I promise to keep you all updated!
Another Summer program to check out by Doris Hocevar of The Centre for Healthy Mindspace

The Centre for Healthy Mindspace is offering a 4 session summer program for youth, beginning July 8th at 10:00 am.
The last camp of the summer! We returned to Mr. and Mrs. Rorke's house where we did three main activities: Making t-shirts with bleach, making our own ice cream and playing in the POOL!!
Much fun was had by all! Of course, ice cream was a hit, especially because we had it before lunch! A big thank you to Mrs. Rorke and her students for joining us, and letting us use their wonderful property. Have a great rest of your summer!!
The second to last camp of the summer..... we had a nice small group, so could do a big project!! We learned how to make plaster casting masks. Instead of petroleum jelly to keep the mask from sticking, we used coconut oil. Not only did it smell really good, it also tasted good and worked marvelously in helping release the masks. As the drying time takes all day, everyone has promised to send me pictures of the final results once they paint them at home. I do hope that I'm able to post them here! Thanks girls for being brave and experiencing new sensations! I had so much fun!
This time we headed off to the North side of Ten Mile Lake (Kosta's Cove) to make boats, sponge balls and have fun in the water!! It was so nice, no one wanted to go home!!

A windy and cool day, we adventured out to Cottonwood House as well as Lightning Creek! We ran out of time to make paper boats and float them down the river, but there's always next time!
Creatures of Curiosity Summer 2013 #2
Visiting Mrs. Rorke's house, we had many great and exciting plans! The two top pics were.......Spray painting T-shirts, and lots of hands-on bunny love. So many smiling faces all day long, it was great fun! A big thank you to Tammy, Bill and Amy Rorke who not only let us use their property, but joined in the fun as well! As well, a thank you to one of Mrs. Rorke's students Dom who gladly gave our group a great tour of the bunny and chicken houses!

I am super excited to announce that plans for Creatures of Curiosity camps during this July and August are officially in the works!! I have a few loose ends to tie up and will hopefully be able to announce what is happening in a few weeks!
After a busy June, helping students prepare for exams, we jumped straight into our Creatures of Curiosity Summer programs.
This year there are two programs running: Tuesdays Arts & Crafts, and Thursday Creative Challenges which is a mix of nature fun and creative projects!
Here are some photos from our Tuesday sessions:
Thursday sessions, I have discovered, are hard to photograph as we are so involved! Here are some snapshots of a few of the things we’ve done as part of our Thursdays!
Keep checking back, and I’ll share more of our adventures! As well, please check out our Facebook Page for more pictures and additional updates!
As well, I’d like to say a HUGE “Thank You” to my volunteer Olivia, who is getting some great job experience as well as building a great rapport with all of our little participants! Just yesterday, as she wasn’t there before they arrived, I was questioned multiple times with “Is Olivia coming?” “Are you sure she’s coming?” and “I really hope she comes, she’s lots of fun” A great way to start!
