The Kiwanis Club of Lakeshore and Sandro’s Restaurant are excited to welcome summer with you and your children at Camp Wakonda’s Summer Kickoff Party. On June 25th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., you’re invited to Sandro’s Family Restaurant, 465 Trunk Road, for a day of family fun. Entrance is by donation to the Kiwanis of Lakeshore Foundation and Camp Wakonda.
Just for attending, all children ages 7 to 14 get the chance to win a free week at Camp Wakonda, as well as many other great giveaway prizes being offered to children and a silent auction for adults. While at the Summer Kickoff Party, children can enjoy activities such as making crafts, roasting marshmallows, creating their own infused water, face painting, and seed planting, to name just some of the many activities featured. Plus, don’t forget to drop by Sandro’s banquet room for a slice of their delicious pizza.
“We’d like to thank our sponsors for making this day possible, especially Sandro’s for hosting the event, providing pizza with a portion of sales donated to Camp Wakonda, and for sending two deserving children to camp,” says Monique Morrison, Visibility Chair for the Kiwanis Club of Lakeshore.
The Kiwanis Club of Lakeshore would also like to thank the generous sponsors who provided equipment and prizes for the event including PAC Construction Group LTD, Huckson’s Water Depot, Duke of Windsor Sport Shop, GoodLife Fitness Sault Ste. Marie, CIBC, Hearth Pool & Patio, The Shoe Fits, Holy Cow’s Ice Cream Parlour, Apothecarium Pharmacy, ACE Inc. and Jeronamo Solutions. They would also like to remind all attendees that Great Lakes Honda “Spot Your Civic” car will be onsite, so remember to take your selfie and enter the contest.
Camp Wakonda’s Summer Kickoff Party is a community celebration to end the Kiwanis of Lakeshore Foundation’s month long promotion to encourage local residents, past campers, and businesses to share the camp experience with a less fortunate child. If interested in sending a child to camp or helping Camp Wakonda in another way, the Kiwanis Club of Lakeshore invites you to visit https://campwakonda.ca/become-a-sponsor/.
Camp Wakonda is a non-profit camp owned by the Kiwanis of Lakeshore Foundation with the aim of providing children with memories and friends they will cherish for life. The camp is located on McCarroll’s Lake, approximately 25 miles east of Sault Ste. Marie, and spaces are open for week long sessions throughout July and August.
