The Allan Summer Fun Program is a summer program for children aged five to twelve with a focus on mental growth, physical activity, and healthy lifestyles. “The quality of life for the children of our community has been increased by giving children something extra to look forward to daily” said Nordmarken. “For our community the benefits of having our children grow up with positive outlets to express themselves as well as a sense of ease for parents knowing their children have a safe place to go is immense.” 

Kool Summer Daze provided children with the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of games, crafts, and activities. This program was offered at no cost and was accessible to children of all needs. “This summer program made it possible for children to engage in the community in meaningful ways” shared Bonnie Marchildon, Office Administrator. “Children gained a sense of belonging and they also learned to take pride in their community. It not only helped keep our community active throughout the summer, but it brought a dynamic sense of community to all involved.”
