Multi-Culture Celebrated at the Bay Breeze Kid's Camp

At our Little Kid's Art Camps this summer we were attended by children from many different backgrounds. Part of our program included making flags of the children's heritage. These included:

Germany, Finland, Scotland, Korea, Canada and more specifically Acadia. Eric MacDonald created his very own flag of Toronto and Lola Clerc, although born in Switzerland chose the flag of Sudan where she will reside as of September with her parents who work in the health field. It was wonderful to see the diversity of these children, share some of their experiences and see how the cultural makeup of Bathurst is changing to include people from all over the world.
Special thanks to Charlene Pearce who provided yoga sessions for these children. They all thoroughly enjoyed their time with her and the weather remained beautiful so the yoga could be done outside. Also, a special thanks to Lacey Sullivan, my assistant and aspiring artist for all her help with the camp. The kids loved her and she enjoyed her time with them too!
There is still room in next week's Big Kids Art Camp. Contact Adrienne Elfner-Hazen to register at 506-548-2160.
