Kids Get Set for Summer Learning Camp

August 3, 2018

Over 300 children are heading back to school this summer for a unique experiential learning program of the Louis Riel School Division that features educational games, hands-on learning and field trips.


ASPIRE (Academic Summer Program Including Recreation and Education) is designed to build math, reading, writing and problem-solving skills for kindergarten to grade five students, all while having fun doing it.


Ashley Huot, School and Family Community Connector for ASPIRE, says the program is interactive and engaging. “It’s not typical classroom learning. It’s like a very fun camp with learning strategically placed into it.”


The program runs for five weeks from July 4 to August 8 out of four schools in the Division—Victor Mager, Victor Wyatt (including students from Lavallee), Frontenac (Archwood) and Windsor (Varennes, Provencher, Marion, Henri Bergeron and Glenwood). The program is available to students of the Louis Riel School Division by invitation only.


Huot says the children will explore several themes this summer—community and friends, out of this world, dinosaurs and animals, outdoor explorers, love of the arts, and celebration. Students will also take part in field trips to the zoo and a farm, learn about astronomy through a mobile planetarium, build physical literacy skills, participate in a theatre workshop, and have access to school libraries for a little summer reading. The program is staffed by 38 instructors, educational assistants and high school students.


“This program is so essential to communities,” says Huot. “ASPIRE is really a place where kids build friendships and stay connected to their schools in a positive way.”


ASPIRE runs Monday to Thursdays from 9:00am to 3:30pm, and 9:00am to 3:00pm on Fridays. A nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided, along with bus or walking bus services (depending on location). A special thanks to the Manitoba Marathon for donating left-over juice boxes to the program!
