😊 Summer Day Camps Are ON !

We are so happy to be able to offer our campers Day Camps throughout the summer in Castlegar on Mondays and Tuesdays and in Nelson on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays! 

 
Day Camps run from 10am-4pm and Family Campfire Nights are 6-7:30 OR 8-9:30. 
 
In Castlegar we will be located at the United Church, and in Nelson we will be at Camp Koolaree’s Parking Lot just past Lower Six Mile Rd.  We only have room for 10 campers per day or 10 families for campfire night, so please register ASAP.  You do not have to register for the full week, so feel free to pick and choose your day(s) and location(s).  All camps are offered by donation.  
 
“Canteen” (snack) will be provided, but campers will need to bring a packed lunch and water bottle. 
 
If your child has any cold or flu symptoms they will need to stay home.  We will send an email to registrants with specific health and safety procedures. 
 
Please let us know if your child will not be able to attend any days you have registered so that we can open that spot up to another camper.

Help from Castlegar Rotary

Once again the Castlegar Rotarians have come through with a generous donation for Camp Koolaree. At their regular meeting on January 21 this year, club president, Stan Hadikin, officially presented a beautiful set of battery-powered tools to Ray Lundquist and Bill Furey, members of the camp’s board of directors. Bill, a Rotarian himself, was instrumental in getting this gift. He also presented a PowerPoint of Camp Koolaree photos showing the work done over the past couple of years to replace the floor and to install a nice solar power system for the Brick Shed.
The Ridgid 18 volt lithium-ion toolset includes; 7 ¼ in. circular saw, reciprocating saw, impact driver, 2-speed hammer drill, battery charger, two 4 Ah batteries, and a large carrying bag.
Many thanks to the Rotary club as this new equipment should prove very handy around the camp and in the newly renovated solar powered Brick Shed.
