Children in the Kettle Valley Adventurer Club learn to interact with each other and with adults by engaging in club-directed activities

The Kettle Valley Adventurer Club ended its year with a grand finale Investiture program on Saturday evening, June 7 at the Westbridge Community Hall. Five children, ages 4-8, received recognition and awards for completing their classwork and earning their badges. Altogether the children earned 88 badges between them!

They were congratulated for their hard work and promoted to the next class in the upcoming club year, which will begin in early October 2014. An information and registration session will be held in September for all local families who are potentially interested in having their children join this Christian- based club, which meets twice monthly and also participates in community events and enjoy numerous field trips and family fun nights.

Although small in number, director Christine Simpson is pleased with the success of the club as a whole this past year. “We just need more children to swell the ranks,” she smiles.
