We offer 6 jam-packed weeks of daycamp from first week of June till Middle of August each year. These programs run Mon- Fri from 9:00 am –3:00 pm at the following locations: Clinton Elementary School, Douglas Road Elementary School, Marlborough Elementary School, Maywood Community School, Gilpin Elementary School and Stride Avenue Community School. You may be qualified for the Daycamp Subsidy program.
Each week participants take part in a variety of activities (swimming, sports, crafts, out trips), all centred around a weekly theme.
The Gilpin Parent Committee has been working on a single goal since 2007: to build a quality childcare site on its school ground. This childcare site would be used in the community today and long into the future.
The Parent Committee has rallied friends, families and businesses to raise $60,000 to date – still a ways to go to reach the targeted $200,000 to fully fund the installation of a portable on the school grounds. Along the way, the Committee earned important backing from the Burnaby Neighbourhood House (BNH), which brought their expertise and reputation to get things moving. Despite the climb still ahead, this Committee and BNH feel like they are in the home stretch (almost!).
