Recreation leaders in training
Twenty of Bowen’s youth came out last Thursday night for the annual Leaders in Training event led by Bowen Island Community Recreation and sponsored by Bowen Island First Credit Union.
These youth will be volunteering this summer with Mini Club, Club Bowen, and Bowen Adventurers Summer day camps. Leaders in Training teaches the volunteers some basic leadership skills, how to be an enthusiastic volunteer, and how to interact with our young day campers throughout the summer.
Special thank-yous go out to two community members who augmented our training with some special topics of interest.
Ellie Mackay provided training on the importance of being a role model when it comes to healthy eating choices and habits while Amanda Ockeloen reviewed some basic first aid.
Bowen Island Community Recreation is able to provide this valuable training event free of charge thanks to the support of the Bowen Island First Credit Union.
We are looking forward to working with all of our youth volunteers this summer.
