Inter-generational Language Camp – This Weekend!

Multi-Generational Language Camp in Crawford Bay

Join the fun on the weekend of November 25, 26 at Crawford Bay School on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake.   Celebrate our multi-language Canadian culture; the whole family is invited.

On Saturday, we start the day with yoga in French (instruction in English) at 10 am or make a German cake, then sing songs in Spanish and other languages, do Middle Eastern Belly Dance for women and Hip Hop World Sign for youth (and young elders) ! In the afternoon we are pleased to have an Introduction to Ktunaxa Language with Christopher Horsethief of the Ktunaxa nation and Anne Jimmie of Yakan Nuqui.  Child-minding (0-6) is available and LUNCH is available for purchase, thanks to Jen Newcomen.

On Sunday, play games in German with grandma and grand-daughter team Sylke and Eira, make a German cake, and dance with Dance Fusion Slava Doval- all ages.  Worldsign signing and colouring is available for all.  Maybe our favourite magician will stop in.   An international dance celebration will end the day at 4 pm.

WHY- we noticed that several local families speak French, German, Spanish and other languages at home.  In this event we hope bring families together to meet other families, and celebrate our diverse Canadian languages.   If you would like to get involved, maybe lead some games, give coordinator Laverne Booth a call at 250-551-6020.

This FREE event is brought to you by Heritage Canada, RDCK and the East Shore Learning Hub.  You can purchase a delicious lunch, and childminding (0 to 6) is provided.  Please let us know if you plan to attend on Facebook: East Shore Learning Place/event page or www.eastshorelearninghub.ca , email Laverne at eslearningplace@gmail.com or txt/call 250-551-6020.

NOTE the FERRY SCHEDULE- if you take the 8:10am from Balfour you arrive at Crawford Bay School (on Walkley Road) at 10 am local time (we are one hour ahead in MST). To go home, take the 5:20pm and arrive home an hour early!
