The Kamloops Gymnastics and Trampoline Centre in the Tournament Capital Centre is offering support for evacuee families with children ages there-and-a-half to 16.
The organization is offering free gymnastics and trampoline camps for children of families who have been displaced due to the wildfires on either side of the city.
Morning half-day camps run from Monday through Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Afternoon half-day camps run Monday through Thursday from noon to 3:30 p.m. Full-day camps run Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Full-day participants will require lunch and two snacks. A water bottle is permitted and refill stations are available. Children should wear comfortable clothing that allows them to move easily. Shorts and t-shirts work, but parents should ensure clothing is not too baggy, as it may become a danger, or too tight, as it may be restrictive. Long hair should be tied back and socks and shoes removed. Jewelry or other items that might cause scratching or become caught in materials must be removed.
