The Thompson Local News

Despite what some people may have heard, there will be things to do for kids here in Thompson this summer.


As part of the City’s $470,335 spending reduction, there will be no day camps at the T.R.C.C. this summer.


Speaking on City Beat late last week, Councillor Kathy Valentino told Arctic Radio News that it’s just the City-run summer camps that are not happening.


She said that if you’re looking specifically for a summer day-camp there are other organizations, such as the Boreal Discovery Centre and Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre, which will be offering them.


Valentino clarified that it is just the day camps that will not be running. She added that the staffed wading pools, Rotary Park splash pad, skateboard park, Norplex Pool and events like drop-in basketball have not been impacted at all.


Valentino added that the reductions at the T.R.C.C. are just to the hours that the front desk is staffed, and do not affect the building or activities taking place.


The City has confirmed that the front desk will be staffed from 9:00am through 10:00pm on weekdays, which is a reduction in two hours at the start of the day. Weekend hours remain unaffected. Even though the front desk will not have anyone there, gym members can still swipe in with their cards and start their work-outs at 7:00am
