RE: RED CROSS SWIMMING LESSONS and DAY CAMP
WOODVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA – The Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors wishes to advise the residents of Woodville and Kings County that the Red Cross Swimming Lesson Program and Day Camp scheduled for this summer are cancelled. This difficult decision was made due to the continuing concerns around the potential spread of COVID-19 in our communities and a desire to support the Nova Scotia Public Health directive of promoting physical distancing.
The Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors thanks those who have supported these programs in the past and look forward to welcoming you all to our community in 2021.
About the Woodville Red Cross Swimming Lessons and Day Camp
The Woodville Community Centre has been offering the Red Cross Swimming Lesson program to the residents of Woodville and Kings County for over 35 years. In the early years, the program was offered at pools in the community rotating on a weekly basis. In 1994, the swimming lessons were moved to the VanHattems’ pool on a permanent basis. Each year approximately 150 children learn to swim in Woodville.
Our Day Camp runs each summer for a week at the end of swimming lessons and employs many young people from the Community.
“Woodville occupies its place in the fertile Annapolis Valley, nestling into the North Mountain and providing a home for about 200 people. A landscape of orchards, pastures, cultivated fields and well-kept homes may be what one first notices, but Woodville is also a vibrant active community of citizens who have discovered how to support each other, have fun, who know how to work together.” – Jim Morton, Former MLA, Kings North in support of Woodville’s Lieutenant Governor’s Community Spirit Award nomination.
