Fun times ahead at pool and ice rink

The CVRD has an assortment of fun planned for the coming months at the Comox Valley Aquatic Centre and at the ice arena at the Sports Centre.

The all ages Goo Zone involves pudding, Jello and shaving cream. If this piques your interest, drop by the pool by NIC from 2-4 p.m. May 19 and June 16.

Build, Bail and Hope to Float is from 2-4 p.m. May 20. Teams of four will design, build and hope to float a cardboard boat across the pool.

Graffiti Ice is a free event at the rink on May 20, and a tiny tot hockey wrap up party is May 19.

Parents are encouraged to start planning for the summer. There are 24 day camps available — swimming, skating, hockey, sports and other camps.
