Exciting times ahead…

I just got home from a Programming Committee meeting with Camp fYrefly SK.  Super exciting things on the horizon.  The next couple months are going to be pretty amazing, and camp this year really is going to the best yet.  If you haven’t got your application filled out yet, I strongly urge you to hop on over to the Camp fYrefly website as soon as you’re done reading this post.

Application deadline for Youth Leaders and Adult Volunteers is June 15th – that’s only a couple of weeks away.  And the camper deadline (though it hasn’t been officially set yet) will not be much past that.  August may feel like a world away at this point, but it’s closer than you think.

It’s going to be a crazy busy Summer for me.  So very much to do, but such exciting work towards such an amazing end!

All of the applications for Camp fYrefly are now live on our website.  Haven’t familiarized yourself with us and what we’re all about?  I’d say it’s time you did!

Camp fYrefly is all about youth empowerment!  It’s about providing opportunities for growth, friendships, and once in a lifetime experiences.  It’s about training and preparing tomorrows leaders.  It’s about giving kids (and young adults) a chance to thrive.

I’ll say it loudly and with emphasis:  I AM DAMN PROUD TO BE INVOLVED!  Seriously.

Camp fYrefly gives at-risk youth a chance to come together, and learn just how incredible they are.  And just how world-changing they can be.  It’s our goal to give them the tools to shape their tomorrows, and to be a light in the dark for others who might be alone and hurting as they once were.

So head on over to our website:  http://www.usask.ca/education/fyrefly/  Find out how you can get involved!

To old to be a camper?  Why not take part as an Adult Leader?

Still young enough to be a camper, but really wanting to stretch yourself and take a leadership role?  Then being a Youth Leader might be the role for you.

Are you an artist or creative professional and want to teach a seminar or skill building workshop.  Despite being past the deadline, we’re still willing to consider additional workshops.

Want to do something, but don’t feel you have the time?  Why not donate?  for $300 you can cover the fees for one camper…  no youth will be turned away because they can’t afford to come.

Camp fYrefly Saskatchewan is one of only a handful of programs like this WORLD WIDE!  So don’t think you can’t apply because you aren’t from Saskatoon.  Fill out an application, and let us know if you need a travel bursary.  We’ll make things work!

So yeah!  Swing on by the website, and check us out!  Got questions?  Let me know.  That’s what I’m here for.
