Southeast College is bringing back their summer camps for kids, starting next week at their Weyburn campus. This year they are offering camps throughout July and August, each a week long. 

"This year we're offering six weeks of camps instead of four," explained Jody Holzmiller. She is the college's Vice President of Professional Training and Continuing Studies. "We've had great interest in our camps, and I put that down to some of our new offerings."

This year the camps range from Junior Scientists to Inventapalooza, to Friendly Faces in Your Neighbourhood, and they are all geared towards kids aged 6 to 10. 

"We have a coordinator who is responsible for running the camps, and so we just put our heads together this year, thinking that we needed a bit of a refresh, and she did some research and that's how we came up with the camps for this year," Holzmiller continued. 

Holzmiller added the kids who take part come away with quite a bit other than just having a fun week.

"The biggest part of it is it gets them doing some things hands-on, making some new friendships, and learning about the friendly faces in our community," Holmiller said. "That's one we really want to stress this year. We want children to have a positive image of our law enforcement, and our paramedics, and our firefighters."

The camps run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday throughout the summer. Those who are interested in registering for the camp can do so through the Southeast College website.
