Float wins awards
Thanks to many volunteers and Bob French’s creativity, Camp Pringle’s parade float received three awards in 2014! We participated in the Victoria Day Parade (Victoria), Buccaneer Days (Esquimalt), Canada Day Parade (Shawnigan Lake), Duncan Days and the Bathtub Races (Nanaimo).
Subaru Shawnigan Lake Triathlon & Dinner
For the second year, Camp Pringle was the preferred accommodation for triathletes and their families. Staff and volunteers prepared a carbo-loaded dinner and raised $6,000 for camp operations.
Selkirk Waterfront Festival
Over 400 members of the Burnside Gorge community met Camp Pringle as we hosted the annual event’s Family Fun Zone. Potato sack races, a bubble table, tattoo station and colouring activities entertained 6-9 year olds while parents discussed camp with volunteers.
Family Fun Day
On June 14th, Camp Pringle offered a taste of camp to the public. We welcomed 89 people to enjoy samples of soup and cookies, play on the low ropes and slip-and-slide, meet with our summer camp staff and relax with their families.
