I am sad to say, but our summer camp has come to an end for the year. However, we were really happy to have this great group of campers (12-14 year-olds). We ended the two week session with a vehicle visit. Campers were able to go inside a fire truck, police car and a real race car! Our visitors were super nice and even let us sit in the driver's seat (keys removed thank goodness). Even though it began raining right when our vehicles came to visit, campers were good troopers and stayed outside! We got some envious looks from the Hockey Camp that was going on in the rink when they saw all of the cool vehicles we had visiting! Thanks to Station 6 (Spryfield & Herring Cove) for bringing their fire-truck and giving us a demonstration of putting on gear and showing us what a fire-fighter might look like if they come to our homes. Constable Jason Wilson (the Community Officer for Spryfield) brought his police car and also showed us all of the equipment he has on his belt. Finally we would like to thank Cole and Jarett Butcher for bringing in their race car! Campers did a great job claiming into the driver's seat through the window and even getting back out on their own! It was all a really great experience and we are so thankful that these visitors could come visit us every session this summer!
Hoping that all campers have a wonderful school year and be sure to register for some other awesome Autism Nova Scotia programs! We hope to see you all again next summer (and maybe even at March Break Camp!) Thanks for reading my blog posts, it has been enjoyable writing some snippets of camp life and taking lots of photos.
