SCOSA has  partnered  with the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club (OBGC) to provide a program called the Creative Academy, which is in development through a grant from the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen.  Matt Hatch, OBGC Program Coordinator, brings together the children and staff after school at the Shatford Centre on Tuesday afternoons.

We hear the children coming and feel the energy of the 97 year old heritage building shift enthusiastically when 30+ children arrive! The routine is that the children and staff land in a classroom for a snack and orientation, then children select their choice of activities.

So far, choices are the auditorium for recreational and fun games, the visual arts studio for creative adventures and the Rotary Community Learning Kitchen, with volunteers needed to help enhance this weekly experience. Let us know if you are interested.

If you have any interest please contact us for the details. 250-770-7668 or e-mail info@shatfordcentre.com for the schedule and details.
