Kiwassa’s Kids Step Inside City Hall
Our adventure-packed summer camp took 27 children to the grounds of Vancouver’s City Hall for a special visit with Mayor Gregor Robertson and Councillor Andrea Reimer. The kids received a history lesson on the building and explored the garden before ending the day with a picnic. They also got a dose of inspiration from Councillor Reimer who spoke passionately about our environment and the role we all play in preserving its sustainability.
The City of Vancouver is an important partner supporting programs benefitting our community. On behalf of Kiwassa Neighbourhood House and the kids of summer camp, we wish to send a heart-felt thanks to Mayor Robertson, Councillor Reimer, and the amazing behind-the-scenes team who made this day possible.
Exposing children to people and spaces that make important decisions impacting their community allows them to imagine the potential of their own leadership and the role they can play in influencing change.
At Kiwassa Neighbourhood House we run engaging after-school programs and summer camps that help build valuable life skills, confidence, and a sense of possibility, helping children do we well in school and in life. Thanks to community partners like Hives for Humanity, Italian Cultural Centre, Museum of Vancouver, our campers are learning about our connection to the natural environment. Beach clean-ups, mountain hikes, science explorations and gardening adventures are all part of their summer journeys!
