AHCS Hosts Summer Camping Trips for Youth

Agassiz-Harrison Community Services is pleased to offer the Youth Nature Connection project which will serve youth aged 12-18 years old

With the assistance of a Civil Forfeiture grant focused on youth crime prevention, Agassiz-Harrison Community Services (AHCS) is pleased to offer the Youth Nature Connection project which will serve youth aged 12-18 years old. The focus of this project is to deliver 2-night youth camping trips to Manning Park this summer. AHCS plans to provide a camping experience for 50 youth living in the District of Kent, Harrison Hot Springs and surrounding area over the next three months.

This program focuses on encouraging youth participation in recreational activities, fostering the development of positive social relationships between youth, developing youth team building skills in a neutral environment, increasing youth self-esteem and empowerment through skill development and developing respect and appreciation for nature.

The first camping trip is scheduled for July 13-15, 2015 and we are looking for youth to participate. The remaining camping trips will be held weekly until the beginning of September. If you know of youth who could benefit from attending one of these camping trips, please contact Agassiz-Harrison Community Services (7086 Cheam Avenue, Agassiz or 604-796-2585). Parental/Guardian consent forms can be picked up during office hours (Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.).
