Third Academy Junior High Students will be travelling with their teaching teams on Wednesday, September 18th to Camp Kiwanis for a three-day, two-night field school. Students will return to Calgary on Friday, September 20th.
Camp Kiwanis is located west of Calgary, near Bragg Creek, along the Elbow River. Founded by the Calgary Kiwanis Club in 1951, the camp’s mission is to “empower youth to explore, think critically, connect with their communities, and to make the most of life for themselves and others.”
At Camp Kiwanis, Third Academy students will participate in activities to develop their environmental literacy and awareness, with the goal of them being able to make responsible choices to take environmental action. As well, they have an opportunity to be physically active and have fun in the outdoors.
Camp Kiwanis offers excellent facilities for our extended study trip including dorms with washroom facilities and catered food service.
