New children’s club holds inaugural meeting

A Christian-focused club for kids ages three to five has formed in Rock Creek.

Founding members of the Kettle Valley Adventurer Club.

The Kettle Valley Adventurer Club was officially organized at its first meeting on Oct. 8. The club meets twice a month from 4-6 p.m,. usually every second Tuesday (first and third Tuesday) in the boardroom of the Rock Creek Medical Clinic building.

It currently has five child members and four volunteer staff members. The Adventurer Club is a Christian-focused club which teaches family values and basic life skills in the setting of a fun, educational and stimulating environment. Children learn how to interact with each other and with the adults in their community by engaging in club-directed activities, which earn the children badges and pins for their uniform sash. They also interact with the community during field trips and outreach endeavours. The next organized field trip will be an official attendance in full uniform at the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cenotaph just east of Rock Creek on Nov. 11.

Children ages three to nine are eligible to become members of the club, but must attend with a parent or childcare provider. If interested, contact the club director, Dr. Christine Simpson, at 250-446-2990.
