Swimming Lessons cancelled…


LVCC regrets to inform that there will be NO Red Cross swimming lessons at Glayco Beach in Howser this year. Despite extensive efforts by our volunteer board members ( special extra thanks to Sandra Rempel )- we were unable to secure an instructor. If you are interested in becoming a Red Cross certified swim instructor – or need to upgrade or renew – please contact Cari Liverman-Lamoureux Sandra Rempel or Tracy Remple to discuss some options for future seasons.

summer camp registration….

Hi Kaslo and up the lake parents,
If you would like your youth to participate in one of our summer camps, you still have a chance to apply for funding grant from KORTS (Kids to Camp application is attached). The deadline for Kaslo parents is June 29th, so please don’t miss your chance! Youth from up the lake can get funding for one camp from LVCC (Jane Gao knows the details). The deadline is the middle of July.
Please talk to us here or to Dasha Karpenkoo or send message to outstandinginnature@gmail.com or call Jane Gao (3664444) if you have any questions.

A few free seats for parents of young children!

There are a few seats available in the upcoming Childcare Emergency First Aid course! This is a Red Cross one day certification. Sunday, June 24th. 8:30-5:00 at the Kaslo Firehall. Bring a lunch.
There is no childcare available on site but babies who are not yet crawling are welcome to attend with their parent. *Please talk to me about certification requirements and our agreement with Selkirk if you are planning to bring your baby*

If you are a parent/caregiver of a child under 6 years, you may be eligible for one of the free seats, sponsored by North Kootenay Lake Community Services Society. Please contact me asap to inquire.

Free First Aid course for parents?


North Kootenay Lake Community Services is inviting parents of children under 6 to express interest in attending a free first aid course. This would be a full day (could be a weekend) and offered through Selkirk college. There would be no childcare provided on site but babies who are not yet crawling could attend in their parent’s arms.

“Emergency Childcare First Aid” is a Red Cross certification.
Learn what to do when a child needs urgent medical attention. You’ll get an overview of first aid and CPR techniques in an interactive learning environment, while learning many skills needed to recognize and respond to a variety of medical emergencies for children and babies.

Please respond to this email if you are interested. We hope to offer this before summer break if there is enough interest!.    barbcyr@nklcss.org
