Rec Report: Don’t miss Sand sculpture event

Christina Lake is hosting the annual Sand Sculpture event Sunday, Aug. 3


August long weekend is upon us and Christina Lake is at its busiest. Family, friends and vacationers converge simultaneously this time of year to celebrate summer at the lake.

Community members and yearly visitors know that celebrating summer at Christina Lake wouldn’t be the same without participating in the Christina lake Recreation’s Annual Sand Sculpture Event.

Sunday Aug. 3, 9:30 a.m., at the Christina Lake Public Beach is where you want to bring your sand tools, imagination, family and friends. Participation is free.

Judging takes place at noon, but everyone’s a winner thanks to the support of the local businesses.


Christina Lake residents and visitors can “dance the night away” at the Christina Lake Community Hall every Thursday night from 7 to 9 p.m. Instructor May Berge will teach you a variety of dance styles from country two-step to the waltz. You don’t need to have a partner to participate and no experience necessary. Drop-in is $5 per person for this two-hour program providing an opportunity to be physically active, mentally challenged and socially engaged.


Summer is when we utilize all the stored up energy from the long winter days participating in high energy activities like water skiing, biking, hiking, swimming and more.

Unfortunately we don’t necessary prepare our bodies for the physical demands of having fun. We experience aches and pains in places we didn’t know could hurt. A good stretch is the cure.

Stretching for Mobility is a program designed by physiotherapist Gisela Ko. She takes stretching to a new level by providing ways to stretch that are easy for anyone at any age. Gisela will help you feel vitalized and renewed during her one-hour class every Wednesday afternoon from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Christina Lake Community Hall. Drop-in is $3 per class.


Make sure you check out the Christina Lake Recreation website at to view the summer recreation brochure. You can also go to to view the community calendar.
