In support of students, teachers and families affected by the Parkcrest elementary school fire, the Kamloops Art Gallery says it will offer free full-day art camps beginning today (Friday, Sept. 6.) until Friday, Sept. 13.
The school was destroyed by a fire Thursday evening. The cause has not been determined. School district officials are making alternative arrangements for students but expect it to take a week.
No one was injured in the fire.
The gallery says extended dates for its art camps may become available as the situation develops.
“We have space to accommodate 20 students; all grades welcome,” the gallery said in a media release.
Call 250-377-2400 or email school programs coordinator Finn Modder at email@example.com to register or for more information. Registrations will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
The camps will be held Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
