Fun on menu for youth week

A "Youth Extravaganza" at Fuller Lake Arena this Friday will be the highlight of BC Youth Week events in the Cowichan Valley.

An annual event across the province, BC Youth Week is held during the first week of May to help build connections between young people and their families.

"It is a chance to celebrate and recognize the valuable contributions youth add to our society," said Laura Chappell, youth outreach programmer for North Cowichan.

The Extravaganza on Friday is a joint effort between North Cowichan Youth Outreach and CVRD Youth Outreach. Beginning at 7 p. m., it will include sumo suit wrestling, bungee runs, human hamster balls, food, music and more. Admission is $ 10, and rides from Duncan are available by calling the CVRD Youth Corner at 250-746-3417.

More events will be happening throughout the week, including drop-in sports on May 7 and a toonie teen swim at the Cowichan Aquatic Centre on May 3.

For more information about Youth Week events, contact North Cowichan Youth Outreach at 250-246-417 or CVRD Youth Outreach at 250-746-3417.
