Hi Camp George!

Thank you for participating in our weekly take home activities. We hope they have been keeping you entertained during this time at home. It can be hard to be away from our school, friends, and family. This week’s activities will help us reflect on this challenging time and focus on our own self-care.

And, don’t forget to check out what’s happening around our community and join in on our congregations virtual programs!

Going for a walk outside (while following physical distancing laws) is a great way to care for yourself and connect with your surroundings. Bring this neighbourhood bingo card with you on your walk and cross off as many items as you can find. Can you fill out the entire sheet?
