Many new activities were added to the 2012 edition of the Beaubassin-est Community Summer Camps. With the collaboration of people and organizations, the municipality is able to offer eight wonderful weeks of camp to the children.
This year, each week has a theme, like the Carnival Week, Saint Valentine’s Day, Camping, Halloween, Christmas in July, Nature, Easter Bunny and the Acadian Day. The camp monitors, Fraisinette, Clochette, Tintin, Bebelle and Lulu, will organize special activities for the occasion.
Another new activity is the Fitness Sessions with Donald Cormier three times a week all summer. The well-known coach will bring all the equipment he needs to make the kids move.
Two young dancers from the area, Chanelle Doiron and Meghan Gaudet, will offer six Hip Hop dance workshops during the summer. They are members of the semi-professional group of the DNA Dance School, and they will compete at the 5th Dance World Cup in Montreal in July. These workshops are possible because of a financial contribution from the Sud-Acadie Cultural Society.
Aldoria Cormier and Christien Comeau will be giving workshops on fishing and archery during the camps at the Haute-Aboujagane Hunting and Fishing Club. And at the Shemogue Golden Age Club, a few members will prepare an Acadian meal with the kids. Also, Vision H2O will offer workshops on the environment, as well as Roland Chiasson from the Cape Jourimain Nature Centre.
As for the other activities, there will be scientific experiences, arts and crafts, photo shoots/expositions, Funny Olympics, leather bracelets fabrication, movies with popcorn, cupcake decoration, bingo, and many other little games in groups or outside.
Every group will go on a visit in the area on Fridays. They will visit the Magnetic Hill Zoo, Butterfly World, Joggins Fossils Cliffs, Fort Beauséjour, Hopewell Rocks, Sackville Waterfowl Park, Belliveau Orchard, Pays de la Sagouine, Seawind Buffalo Ranch, Cape Jourimain Nature Centre and the Smokehouse Museum in Cap-Pelé.
