July fun in Baker Lake

397

Youth have been able to indulge in a wide variety of activities through a summer camp made possible by the Hamlet of Baker Lake. Close to 130 children registered for summer camp and about 80 of them show up daily for events organized by age group, according to camp supervisor Alysa Ookowt. The program wrapped up at the end of July.
