Kidston's March 2022 Newsletter
The month of March has flown by – and there are now officially less than 100 days until Summer 2022 sessions begin!
We were thrilled to welcome folks back to Kidston on March 19th for our annual Winter Open House. Despite the wet weather, we had a wonderful time reconnecting with our community, learning to tap maple trees, exploring new trails, and warming up afterwards with some sweet treats!
Summer 2022 Updates
Registration for all Summer 2022 programs opened on February 1st, 2022 - and spaces filled exceptionally quickly! There are still a few spaces open for new registrations in Tadpole (ages 5-9) and Senior (ages 12-16) sessions. If a session you’re interested in is full, please add your name to the waitlist!
Spring Work Day
It’s almost time to get Kidston ready for the summer – and we could use a helping hand! Join us on Saturday, April 30th for our annual Spring Work Day & Open House at Kidston.
All are welcome: volunteers and visitors! Our gate will be open from 9am to 4pm. Come for an hour, or stay for the day!
Work projects on the go include: painting, spring cleaning, clearing trails and out-trip sites, clearing brush, various repairs, and more.
A hot lunch will be provided – please RSVP here by April 27th so we have numbers for lunch. We hope to see you there!
Help us design this year's camp t-shirt!
Calling all Kidston campers, alumni, and community members!
Would you like to help design this year’s summer camp t-shirts? We’re looking for fun and new ideas for our camp t-shirts and this is your chance!
To submit an idea, please send a message with an image of your proposed design to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Designs should incorporate the Kidston logo. If we base this year’s Kidston t-shirts on your idea, we’ll send you a free t-shirt of your own (or to share with a friend)!
