Child and Youth Summer Programs

Each year the FCSS team gears up for a summer of fun and excitement as we organize and facilitate summer activities across the County for children 5-18 years old. These programs offer a gamut of affordable age appropriate activities for kids and youth during July and August each year. During this time, we welcome an additional eight members to the FCSS family consisting of: Four Program Leaders. Together with the guidance of our Summer Programs Coordinator, this team organized and executed our programming County wide.

Leaders in Training

In addition to the FCSS Program Leaders, FCSS welcomes each year four Leaders in Training. The Leaders in Training (L.I.T.) program gives youth ages 14-17 years the chance to develop leadership skills and gain valuable experience while having fun as part of our FCSS Summer Programs Team. These young leaders assist by in planning, organizing and facilitating Summer Program activities for younger children alongside of FCSS Summer Program Leaders under the supervision of the Summer Programs Coordinator.

Preschool Camps

2013 was our third year of offering Preschool camps. These programs are geared towards children who are 5-6 years of age. The program is located at the Bruderheim Fire hall for two weeks in July and two weeks in August. Regular outdoor activities and community outings are included as well as one field trip per week. Fieldtrips include trips to Kids Quarters, Telus World of Science and the St Albert Splash Park.

Lamont County Summer Camps

These regular camps are offered to children from grades one to six and run for two weeks in July and two August in the Town of Bruderheim and Lamont. Each week offers regular “in community” days consisting of outdoor activities and fun as well as two offsite fieldtrips. Fieldtrips include trips to Millennium Place, Fort Edmonton Park, Telus World of Science, St Albert Splash Park and Laser Quest.

Mundare “Bus to Camp Program”

In 2010, 2011 FCSS unfortunately was faced with cancelling several of the Mundare camps due to lack of attendance. This year we chose to try something new to make sure that those who wished to attend would still have the chance. Each camp week FCSS provided free bus transportation from Mundare to Lamont for all participants.

Girls Only Sleep Over

This is a two day program offered at the Alliance Church for girls only. Participants have the opportunity to have fun and engage in a variety of team activities, games and crafts. The evening consists of a talent show, movie, popcorn and usually a lot of giggling.

Kids Overnight Camp

This is FCSS’ eigth year of offering this unique outdoor experience to children from grades one to six. This is a three day excursion to Long Lake Provincial Camp Ground. Reportedly one of our funnest programs, these days are packed with loads of games and activities.
