Creative Spaces Summer Camp for kids near Nelson

“We can’t wait ’til the hall fills up with all that creative energy,” says Cheri Mortenson-Wiebe of Taghum Hall referring to the Creative Spaces Summer Day Camp offered this summer.

For the week of July 11 to 15 from 9am to 4pm, Taghum Hall will be home to up to 20 area kids ages seven and up and four fabulous facilitators:

Andre Van Berlo, guitar wizard/music instructor;

Annie Delorme, face painter/mask maker;

Gavin Holland, master stained glass artist and

Zaynab Mohammed, the busking poet.

These talented professional artists will lead small groups through daily creative adventures themed around the four natural elements of air, water, earth and fire.

“We’ve kept the price affordable for this pilot project,” says Mortenson­Wiebe of the $175 fee for the week’s activities, “but we aim to provide an exciting and fun­filled experience for every child attending.”

Creative Spaces Day Camp is just one of the initiatives of the Taghum Hall Revitalization Project, a WorksBC grant which is determining community needs and trying to meet them with new and exciting programs. The summer day camp came about after a meeting with local parents to determine what kinds of programs they would like to see at the Hall for their children.

Parents and guardians who would like more information on this and other programs offered at the hall, can check the Taghum Hall website at www.taghumhall.ca or call during office hours (10am– 3:30pm Mondays through Thursdays). Cheri will likely be on hand to answer your call!! (778) 463-1114.
