Letter to the Editor:
Legion Athletic Camp
For many years, the Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 78, has sponsored an opportunity for youth aged 10 to 18 to attend the athletic camp located at the International Peace Gardens in Manitoba. This is the 57th year that this camp has been operating during the months of July and August. This year there are only four weeks of operation from July 15 to August 11. Week one features track and field, gymnastics and advanced track and field. The next three weeks offer both volleyball and basketball. Week Two will also include team basketball and week three includes judo and soccer. Week Four includes a Multisport camp open to younger campers with instruction in different sports.
Each of the local schools has brochures in their offices with an application form that lists the programs and which week they are being offered. There also are brochures at the Front Desk at the Recreation Centre and the library. Included on the brochure is the application form and other information about attending the camp. You can also visit the website: www.legionathleticcamp.com or email: email@example.com. Each camp’s instructors’ emails are also included if your camper needs specific information.
The local auxiliary wants to sponsor some interested participants to this great camp. Your application to the camp must include a $275 deposit. The Legion Ladies will cover the rest of the registration fee of $265 and gas money and the International Peace Camp’s visitors pass for up to 4 interested youth that apply in time.
If you are interested in attending this camp, you need to write a letter to the Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Box 992, P8T 1B3, by June 1. You could also give your letter to any Legion Ladies member. Your letter must include your full name, age, address, telephone number and reason for attending the camp. For further information, call Sandra Lockhart at 737-2268.
