Summer Programming @ Camp Naivelt
Each year our programming committee works to develop and deliver a rich summer schedule of activities for our community. Traditionally most programming takes place on weekends with occasional Friday night activities such as movie nights, Saturday afternoon pop-ups including yoga, bagel making workshops, arts and crafts activities and our weekly Sunday bagel brunches with guest speakers on a variety of topics of interest to the community. In July there is usually a week of music camp for musicians young and old, experienced and novice. In August the camp enjoys a week devoted to all things creative with workshops hosted by community members and invited guests. In addition Naivelters are fortunate to have weekly aquafit class in the Eldorado Park pool.
COVID 19 necessitated a different approach to programming up at camp. This past year we halted almost all face to face programming activities and shifted to a new way of programming for the community.

We developed a list of programming activities for each week of the summer that could be done within family pods, at camp or in the city, and in small outdoor groups up- at camp (with physical distancing and following provincial guidelines).
Once again in 2021 the safety of our community will be our priority. We will be carefully monitoring provincial regulations and guidelines and will adjust our programming plans accordingly. We are hopeful that 2021 will allow us to present a modified version of our music camp which is tentatively scheduled for early July. Stay tuned for more details as the summer approaches!
