Plenty of fun lined up for Kids Kamp

Semiahmoo Kids Kamp is offering local kids a week or a summer’s worth of fun and learning.

Open to children aged 5 to 12, the program concentrates on fitness and sportsmanship, every week focusing on either golf, swimming or tennis. The camp takes advantage of Resort Semiahmoo facilities and expert instruction from resort professional athletes and teachers to give kids an opportunity to improve their skills and build strong minds and bodies.

With more room in newly expanded facilities, the camp also offers art lessons this year, on Fridays during golf weeks and every day during swim weeks. Local artist Joanne Robinson, an alumnus of the Chicago Art Institute, will teach the classes, which will culminate in an art festival at the end of the summer.

“We’ve got some great instructors with a lot of experience that are with the kids all day long,” said camp owner Liz Fisher. “Our camp counselors help with crafts and other activities in the morning, and games and reading time in the afternoon. We’re doing a summer reading program.” The camp has expanded into the building across from the Semiahmoo Maritime Museum this year to provide more room for a variety of activities.

“Unless you drive by the kids camp you don’t know about these things,” said camp owner Liz Fisher. “It really is a great time.”

The camp is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, and tuition is $110 per week per child. For more information call Liz or Lisa at 371-7285.
