The Ponoka Youth Centre (PYC) is having one awesome summer and there are still opportunities for kids to take part.
Program coordinator Morgen Chernick says the summer program is in full swing with field trips and Ponoka activities set to run until Aug. 24. She added that they run Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., which makes it ideal for parents who work during the day.
Among the many field trips planned this year are two big ones to Calgary; one to the zoo and one to the Shakers Fun Centre. In addition there are trips planned to the corn maze in Lacombe as well as the Jungle Farm in Innisfail.
For Chernick, the summer program gives kids fun things to stay busy with and more. “It allows youths to interact with their peers.”
When in Ponoka programmers also give kids four different sessions, which includes arts and crafts, games and science, sports, or a fourth one where youths can pick their own session.
Chernick adds that the PYC is not only accredited and licensed with the province, staff are also highly trained and they interact with the kids.
