Boredom doesn’t stand a chance with Pincher Creek kids this summer as the town’s recreation department rolls out its annual Boredom Busters summer camps.

For children aged five to 12, the camps feature a wide variety of crafts, games, field trips and other activities.

Each week comes with a different theme to keep things fun and fresh. This summer’s featured themes include Canadian week, music week, circus week and more.

“We will be doing crafts that fit the weekly theme, swimming each day, local field trips to the fire station, vet clinic and bowling alley, walking to parks in the community, and playing other fun children’s games,” says Olivia Olivieri, the town’s summer programming co-ordinator.

“My hope is that the kids not only have fun, but also learn from the camps as well.”

Olivia also hopes that parents will feel comfortable sending their children, knowing they will be provided with a fun environment over the summer.

Registration for Boredom Busters closes on Thursday afternoons prior to each week of camps, so parents need to plan ahead.

To register, you can pick up a form at the recreation office, send an email or register online .

Each day costs $35 for one child. If you are registering additional children, the cost is $30 per extra child.
