Striving to keep kids active during dog days of summer
A popular week-long drop-in program at Tyndall Park Community Centre is returning to beat the summer boredom.
Beginning Mon., July 29, Strive will once again set up shop at the club to offer area kids a wide range of activities from hip-hop dancing, science experiments, martial arts, games, crafts and more.
The program started in summer 2010 and is run by more than 20 university students from varying studies.
"These students have a lot of high energy to get (the kids) out of their shell and expose them to things they aren’t exposed to every day," said David Desousa, vice-president of sports for the club.
According to the Strive website, the week-long, free drop-in program is open to kids aged six to 16. Programs focus on fair play, teamwork and health awareness.
The program is accepting any material or cash donations that will help fund equipment and snacks for the program.
Strive will run from July 29 to Aug. 2 from noon to 4 p.m. each day.
Tyndall Park Community Centre is located at 2255 King Edward St.
