New accessible saucer swing coming to Cameron’s playground!

The Cameron Parent Advisory Council has raised over $8000 to fund the purchase of an Oodle Swing for our playground. The Oodle Swing is a saucer swing similar to the one at Cameron Park, and it provides a larger seat and more stability for kids who might have trouble with regular swings. It can also fit 4-6 kids at once, promoting inclusive and group play. More information about the swing is available here.

We received a City of Burnaby Parks, Recreation and Cultural Commission grant of $4000 as well as a Canada Post Community Foundation grant of $2500 towards this purchase. The remaining funds were raised by the PAC through fundraisers like the chocolate sale.

If you are interested in getting involved in planning purchases like this for the school, or in seeking and applying for funding opportunities like these grants, please consider joining the PAC executive! Contact chair@cameronpac.ca for more information, or come to our next meeting!
