Chemainus-Crofton summer camps full of variety

Day camps hosted by the Chemainus Crofton Community Schools' Association feature cooking, Harry Potter magic, logger sports, arts and more.

Whether your children are budding builders or aspiring wizards, the Chemainus Crofton Community Schools’ Association (CCSA) has a summer activities camp that will match their interests.

CCSA hosts day camps from July 1 to Aug. 23 for children entering grades one through eight next fall, CCSA office manager Connie Paradis said.

Most camps have space for 20 children, Paradis added, with the exception being their fine art and performance art camps, both of which have space for “up to 45” campers in three sections.

Camp leaders Kaileigh Simons and Naomi Watson will return as CCSA’s camp leaders for 2013, Paradis said.

This year’s list of CCSA camps is as follows:
