As the summer is in full swing, kids are out of school, and parents are trying to keep them busy and out of trouble. This can be difficult to do if both parents are out of the house working everyday. So the Town of Drumheller has put together a Summer Fun Program for the second year in a row. The drop off point for kids is upstairs at the Drumheller Public Library, but they also go out and about the town, using facility's like the Aquaplex Swimming Pool and the Splash Park to keep the kids entertained.
Coordinator for the Town of Drumheller Summer Fun Program Stephani Henrickson says the goal of this program is keep kids between the ages of 6 and 12 entertained and out of their parents hair for the summer. " The Summer Fun Program, is for ages 6-12, we run Monday through Friday from 8 until 4:30, and each week has a different theme. During our days, we make different crafts, we go swimming,w e visit different parks in Drumheller, and we also go on a different field trip every week. The Theme this week, is Outer Space Fun. We will be making moon pies, flying saucers,and flubber this week. We will also be taking a trip to the Calgary Space Port on Friday."
