TRURO, N.S. – The Central Nova Women’s Resource Centre’s Girl Power camps just got a big boost from the Bible Hill Kinsmen. The community group donated $6,000, raised through the Great Trivia Challenge, to help operate the camps.
“This is a huge help,” said Tracey Dorrington-Skinner, executive director at the centre. “I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this. Donations like this are so important.”
The CNWRC holds Girl Power camps in Colchester County and East Hants. Donations help keep costs low, and some subsidized spots are available.
The centre first began holding the camps in 2002. They’re designed to boost self-esteem and confidence, and encourage creativity and relationships. They include crafts, physical activities, science experiments, games and visits from special guests.
Registration will be open later in the spring, for camps taking place late May-Early June. Information will be available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/GirlPowerSummerCampsCNWRCTruro/
