Youth Interagency held their week long Boys in
Motion Summer Day Camp from July 11 to the
They had an action packed week full of fun and
exciting adventures that took place despite the rain
Edson had. Leading the boys camp was Jacqui
Curri, Ali Broda, Tayler McCallum, Ryan Gray, and
volunteer Carter Grant.
Tayler said, "On Monday we hung out with the
inflatable at the arena, then went to the movies
because it rained. Tuesday was canoeing at Grave
Yard Lake in Hinton. It was really nice and we
spent the whole day there. We did some tipping of
the canoes for practice as the boys all had their life
jackets on." Later the boys got into some water
wars with water guns so it was a fairly wet day
even without the rain.
"Wednesday we did indoor pickle ball and Nerf
gun wars. Thursday we did cooking at Holy
Redeemer High School, and spent more time at the
arena playing some floor hockey then went out to
Willmore Park here for the afternoon," said Tayler.
Activities at Willmore included catch the flag, man
hunt, going for a hike on the trails, having a
barbeque, and doing some survival bracelets. This group of boys took part in the week-long Boys in Motion Summer Day Camp along with their leaders
