Every week, we will have amazing activities where kids will learn things like coding with Minecraft (that’s right, Minecraft fun is included every week of camp), programming a robot, building models, doing experiments and so much more, all wrapped in whatever the theme for that week is.

Drop-off and Pick-up Details
We use two of the church entrances – the entrance used by St. Andrew’s office staff on Church Street (circled in blue on the attached image) and the garden entrance (circled in red on the attached image). The yellow arrows show the direction of traffic through Church Street and the St. Andrew’s parking lot next to the Chatham-Kent Hospice building.
We use the garden entrance for pick-up and drop-off every day but Wednesday mornings. The site contact asked that on Wednesday mornings we use the office entrance for drop-off, as St. Andrew’s requires the garden entrance for their Wednesday morning food bank. A line-up for the food bank usually forms at the garden entrance by 8:00 Wednesday mornings.
