The weather Weyburn has been experiencing recently could allow one to believe Spring is yet to arrive but it is in fact here. Planning for the summer may not be on everyone's radar but this summer has been on the minds of Southeast College Staff for the past two years.
They are starting a new summer day camp for children aged 6-12 years old.
Each camp takes place Monday to Friday for one week and there are five weeks planned. Each week has a different theme.
"We recognised a really great opportunity for us to share our facility with the community in the summer months and being able to give the area children to expand their knowledge and have some fun," explained Sheena Onrait, Manager of Marketing and Communications, Southeast College.
The business plan was put together last year with the idea birthed the year before.
Onrait said the registration is simple and can be done by calling the college directly or register online.
"It's something we haven't done before but we've seen the need for it in our communities."
"We are excited to be able to have the younger generation and be familiar with what we offer with our college."
