Kids have something new to keep them busy and out of their parents' hair this winter. The Badlands Community Facility has revived its popular summer camp program to entertain and educate kids during Christmas vacation.

"We are bringing Camp BCF from summertime to the wintertime," explained Amber Leavitt of the BCF. "During school vacation, at Christmas time, we're inviting the kids in for week-long camps."

This year's trial winter-time camp is offered in a variety of formats, said Leavitt.

"We don't run on the holiday itself. So, we have three- and four-day camps running over the holidays. We have full-day camps and half-day camps."

"The full-day camps are regular BCF Camps where the kids come in the morning and we do fun stuff with them all day long. The half-day camps are specialized camps."

Christmas vacation for Drumheller area schools this year is from Saturday, Dec. 23 to Sunday, Jan. 7.
