Coastal Summer Programs

Most of the communities along the coast are doing summer programs for children this year.

Nain and Hopedale have not planned anything as of yet due to shortage of staff.

Jacqueline Harris is the acting Recreation Director for Postville.

She says the program started today, Monday, June 27, 2022.

Registration forms are available for any children to join from ages 0 to 11.

There is a fee of $20 per child, but if there is more than one that would like to register, the fee is $10.

There are three instructors, herself along with the recreation assistant, and the youth assistant.

For children ages 0 to 4 years, they will have their program from 10am to 12pm, and children ages five to 12 years have theirs from 1 to 3pm.

Krista Mitchell is the Director of Recreation and Community Events for Makkovik.

She says they are in the planning stage for their summer program.

There are five currently working and there will be another five applicants to work with the youth.

The forms will be sent out at the end of the week.

In Rigolet, they have three summer students hired, the Youth Centre will be open during the day instead of in the evening, their gym program will continue, and the hours have expanded for students to enjoy.
