The school year continues to wind down to the final days since June has arrived, and many kids in Rosetown can look forward for what's to come in July and August.

The Rosetown Fun Squad is a summer program that runs every weekday in July and August and is available for kids between the ages from 10 to 15. Kids will be able to enjoy a wide variety of activities that will be held indoors and outdoors, depending on the weather.

Denise Fullerton is the Fun Squad Coordinator and had a chance to talk about some major activities that youth members would be involved in this upcoming summer.

"We have certain activities like crafts and outdoor games to play. We will also be doing typical glow bowling games, late night swims, and mini-golf. We have a trip planned out to Clearwater Lake for the day with a drive-in movie at night for a major trip." Fullerton explained.

The unique part for the Rosetown Fun Squad is that it's completely free to join for the youth members.

This will be Fullerton's second year with the Fun Squad and talks about how excited she is to return to her hometown for the summer months.

"I'm currently studying at the University of Lethbridge for Child & Youth Counseling. This was a great opportunity for me to return to my hometown for the summer months and work in my field." Fullerton stated.

The registration process should begin within the next week or so. The Rosetown Fun Squad operates by using a Facebook page to post additional information, which can be found here.
