We could use your help. Our Summer Arts Camps are off to a wonderful start. However,  due to larger than normal camp sizes, we could really use two more volunteers per week. You don't have to be artistic, just helpful and someone who cares about kids. If you or anyone you know could help on any of the following weeks, please let me know ASAP: July 16-19; July 23-26; July 30-August 2; August 20-23. Camp runs from 12-4 Monday -Thursday. Volunteers and staff arrive at the HUB at 10 AM (11AM is fine too) to get instructions and prep for the day. Please help us make these camp experiences amazing. Volunteers should be ages 16 and up. If you can only make one or two days per week, that is still helpful; 4 days would be most effective. Contact Allen at 289-687-0169, allen@thebridgenf.ca. Come join the fun!
