Tipi Camp will hosts its fifth annual fundraiser on Sunday, January 26 at the Anglican Church Hall (723 Ward Street).

The event is spaced out throughout the day, taking place from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. to midnight.

This year, organizers are having a day of yoga and dance.

It begins at 9:30 a.m. with one hour of Rise and Shine Yoga with Mikaela Morgan, Dance Church at 11 a.m. with Bernice Rabbis and a fabulous lunch courtesy of Mama Jen at 12:30 p.m.

In the evening, three fabulous local DJs — Emma Starr, Morning Glory and Cass Rhapsody — will light your inner fire and help shake off those winter blues at an all ages dance party.

Participants can stay for one class, all day or anywhere in between.

Spontaneous drop-ins on the day are  welcome and encouraged.  This is a day to suit your needs and the focus is to have fun and raise money for the groups bursary program.

About Tipi Camp:

Wilderness Immersion and Self-

Esteem camps for children and teens are the impetus for this non-profit organization where the natural environment encourages opportunities for learning, cooperation and fun.

During the Teen Camp, for ages 13 to 16, councillors lead the group into the Purcell Mountains where they learn to live together in nature. There are countless opportunities for the teens to develop respect for each other and the world they share.

Many children receive bursaries for these programs, allowing the camp to be available to those who need it.

Half of the children and teens who attended the WISE programs in the summer of 2013 were from the Nelson area.

Pledge sheets are a vital aspect to the group’s fundraising efforts.

Those who attend the Day of Yoga and Dance are asked to bring a pledge sheet. Every little bit helps, (no contribution is considered too small), as loonies, toonies and $5 bills add up fast.

You can print a pledge sheet off the Tipi Camp website at tipicamp.bc.ca and sign up sponsors before the event.
