The camps serve as a fundraiser for Weekend Fuelbag, a charity created by Langley youth to help feed hungry students on weekends. The program currently provides meals for 80 students in the Langley School District.

Both sessions will take place in the main gym at Walnut Grove Secondary from 3:30 to 6 p.m.

Kids are asked to bring athletic wear, a water bottle, and if possible, a basketball.

Students will receive a free t-shirt as well.

Cost is $15 for one session or $25 for both. Those interested can sign up online at weekendfuelbag.ca.
