Casper Club Summer 2007 Programme
Registered Childcare Provider, Casper Club in Castletown is offereing a sizzlingly fun-packed Summer 2007 Programme. This year as ever, we intend to make the most of the ‘life outdoors’ season and have lots of outdoor activities including Day Camping, Den Making, panning for Gold at Kildonan, Outings to the forest, playparks, swimming pools, the ‘Castle of Mey’ with it’s new Animal Centre and the ‘Simply Unique’, ‘Tea Cosy & Peedie Farm’ in Mey. Summer wouldn’t be summer without the chance to play on the beach with fun games, sandcastle competitions, picnics and BBQ’s. We have the use of the Community Education Department Minibus for Outings, which the children have nicknamed ‘The Balamory Bus’!

We have a Brazilian Café with Fashion Show on Friday 6th July from 12 noon onwards where children, parents and members of the public can come along to sample some Brazilian Food & Fashion Show. Entry is 50p and all proceeds will go towards a new Cooker and cupboards for the Casper Kitchen.

The highlight of the Summer will be the 2007 Out of School Knockout is to be held at Casper…on Friday 20th July from noon onwards.

This event is designed to enable all the the Out of School Clubs in Caithness to join together and compete in this fun day event. The last three years of the Out of School Knockout have been hosted by Casper in 2004, Maask in 2005 and Treats in 2006. These have been great days of fun, water fights, stalls, Bouncy Castle, BBQ’s and races.

As 2007 is the highland year of culture we will centre the theme around ‘Highland Games’ This promises to be a wonderfully hilarious day full of excitement and challenges, fun (and often silly!) races and activities designed for all age groups and is open to all children of primary school or pre-school age, so if you would like to come along and join in then please contact Casper Club on 01847 821500. Refreshments will be available to purchase on the day.
Just bring strong footwear, sun cream (in case it’s a scorching day like last year!) and waterproofs or spare clothes just in case you get soaked!!

To ensure that your children don’t miss out on any of these exciting opportunities, phone Casper on 01847 821500 or email us casperclub@hotmail.com  to book or if you would like to request a copy of our leaflet and Summer Programme/Booking Form.
