Dear FAMI Community,
We are writing to share FAMI’s situation regarding August camp. As you may know, registrations for August camp would have normally already commenced by this time of the year.
But speaking of the best laid plans, we learned in April that our plan for the location of our August camp, as well as our backup plan, have fallen through!
We have the understanding that our long-time camp provider is relocating, due to the Alberta Government Elbow River Flood Mitigation Project. Unfortunately, this means that the old FAMI camp location is history. We are optimistic about continuing our successful partnership with this camp provider, but do not yet have the details of where and when this will happen.
Available facilities in the area with amenities suited to the FAMI camp experience are few, but the FAMI board is working diligently, and with a limited timeline, to find a location for August camp.
We have been very fortunate to find a May camp location on short notice that we believe will meet our needs and think everyone will be pleasantly surprised. There are still spots available at the May camp, if you are interested. There have been a few changes made to class offerings and instructors. Please do check the May class list for details! By the way, this year marks the 25th Anniversary of FAMI. We’d love to celebrate with you!
