New camps for kids with cancer among district's Summer Learning programs

City camp poster.pngA new program Surrey Schools is offering in collaboration with West Coast Kids Cancer Foundation invites children living with or beyond cancer and blood disorders to attend two five-day camps.

The free City Camp is for kids six to 12 who have had cancer or are in treatment, and their siblings. Children will have the opportunity to play, learn and make new friends in a medically supervised setting, balancing high-energy activities such as water games and slime making with more tranquil activities like reading and Lego making.

Sessions will be held at A.H.P. Matthew Elementary on July 15-19 and July 22-29. Both will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Transportation support is available if needed. Register online at, or for more information, contact camp coordinator Kelsey Merritt at

The program is among dozens offered by Surrey Schools during the summer months. We anticipate approximately 12,500 students of all ages to enroll in an array of summer programs this year.

Also new this summer are expanded Enhancement Programs for Grade 8-12 students. The programs allow an opportunity for students and teachers to pursue areas of personal interest and engagement in learning, and a new partnership with SFU will allow us to offer an audio/visual-based program this summer.

Invergarry Adult Learning Centre will also being offering full courses for adults this summer, with a spectrum of courses including literacy, math and physical education.

These new offerings add to the district's diverse selection of programs, which includes numerous academic courses for secondary and elementary students, an early primary program for children transitioning from kindergarten to Grade 1, French immersion, trades exploration and more.
