The municipality is offering day camps on Friday for kids who will be out of school because of the teacher strike.

In a release Thursday, HRM said Parks and Recreation is offering camp opportunities which will include fun activities (games, crafts, and outdoor play) for children across the region between the ages of 5 and 12.

Nova Scotia teachers are holding a one-day strike Friday in response to the Liberal government’s bill going through Province House this week that will legislate a contract.

All-day programming will begin at 8 a.m. Friday, and end at 5 p.m. There is a $25 registration fee per child, and openings will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis as space is limited.

The camps will be offered at the following locations:

Recreation Centre

St. Andrew’s Community Centre


Chocolate Lake Community Centre


Gordon R. Snow Community Centre


Bedford Hammonds Plains Community Centre


Captain William Spry Centre


Needham Community Centre


Cole Harbour Recreation at Graham Creighton Junior High

Registration can be made over the phone, online (through RecConnect), or in person at each facility.

Parents are asked to have their children come with nut-free snacks and lunch, water, winter gear, and indoor footwear.
