LEADERSHIP & REPUTATION

Our summer camps are known for their excellent reputation, and our camp leaders are chosen for their experience, abilities and dedication. Our staff team is committed to ensuring a safe and fun day camp experience for your child.

SAFE PLACES FOR KIDS

Your child’s safety is our priority! Children are fully supervised throughout the day and our facilities are checked daily for safety. Our leaders have current first aid, criminal record checks and have received training in child protection procedures, leadership, diversity and cultural awareness. Parents are required to complete and submit a participant information form for each child with emergency contact information and authorized pick-up information. It is the District of Saanich’s policy that children under 10 years of age must be signed-in and signed-out of daycamp programs by an authorized caregiver.

Use of vending machines is not permitted during camp hours. Depending on the camp, additional items may be required. Please leave electronic devices at home (iPods, Nintendo DS etc.). You will receive information about this on the first day of camp. Please remember to label all your child’s belongings!

Saanich has everything you need to have the best summer yet...

Skills Development and Learning – with an Emphasis on Fun! Kids just want to have fun, and they should! They learn and grow through play. Creative arts, the challenge of games, sports and outdoor activities, opportunities for self-expression and exploration are vital to their development. The value of play to a child’s growth is the foundation of all our camp services. THE FIRST DAY

You may need to stay for a few extra minutes on the first day so our staff can ensure your child is signed in and we have all of the required information from you. Please feel free to stay until your child is comfortably settled and we have answered any questions you may have.

Summer Camps Saanich Neighbourhood Playground Programs July 2nd – August 29th • 5½-11yrs

Once upon a time, there was a world without video games and movies. This was a time when adventures were lived and remembered. Through animation, thrilling games, hilarious songs and a little creativity we bring the summer to life for your children. Each week is a new chapter in our story that will navigate us to the Land bephore Time. Join us for one week or the whole summer in “the land of PhuN”!

*Children must be eligible to register for Grade 1.*

S.N.P.P. ADVENTURES 2013 BACK TO THE PHUTURE Myrtle McTurtle loves to travel but she can’t get anywhere very fast. She teams up with Doc, a brilliant scientist who has invented seven magical travel portals that will take her through time and space to worlds she has never even imagined. Unfortunately, through a series of unfortunate events, Doc has gone missing and Myrtle doesn’t know where the portals are! SNPP Campers! Myrtle McTurtle needs your help (and imagination) to find the portals to magical lands and legendary times.

Saanich Neighbourhood Playground Programs are safe, well supervised, high quality and affordable day camp programs delivered in a park setting with plenty of active, imaginative play.

Give us 5 days and we’ll give you FUN for a lifetime!

*

*Pricing may vary by facility

If you have ever thought about picking up a golf club, either for the first time or returning once again, you can make golf your sport for a lifetime. The Get Golf Ready Program is designed to teach you in five short lessons everything you’ll need to know to step onto a golf course and get out to play with confidence. Get Golf Ready will be guided by trained PGA of Canada Professionals who will make sure you have fun each step of the way.

DAY 1

Just like when you were in grade school, the first day is always the easiest – and the most important. During this first lesson, you’ll not only get a historical overview of the sport, but also introduced to the fundamentals, including everything from how to dress and act on the golf course to the purpose of each club and even get on the golf course to hit a few putts.

DAY 2

DAY 4

By this point, you should be familiar with the putting green, the fairway, bunkers and even the rough. Now it’s time to step into the tee box and take a swing. On the fourth day, you’ll learn everything you’ll need to know about teeing off, including which of your metal-woods to use and choosing between the different tee markers.

DAY 5

You’ve taken your first steps on the course and to becoming a golfer! During the second lesson, you’ll learn the art of chipping, pitching and hitting out of green-side bunkers, as you learn your way around the course, being out there for the second time.

Over the course of the first four sessions, you’ve learned the what, when, where, why and how. Now it’s time to do. On the final day, you’ll finish up by learning how to play, keep score and some basic rules like water hazards, out of bounds and lost balls. And then when all is said and done, you’ll put it all to use by playing an entire hole.

DAY 3

Ages 16yrs+

During a round of golf, when you’ve reached the halfway mark, it’s called “the turn”. During Get Golf Ready, the turn means you’re halfway to becoming a golfer. On day three, you’ll be introduced to the fairway and how to use your irons, in addition to important lessons like stretching, making and repairing divots.
