Camp Galoopa ’20

Update for Timing: Camp Galoopa is back this summer! Due to COVID-19, delays are expected for mailing. But fingers crossed the delay isn’t too long with the readers needing extra activities this summer. Anticipated mail date: July 21st (please return for updates)

This issue is filled with extra activities and hands-on fun for readers heading to Camp Galoopa for a 7-day adventure in the mountains. Once the bus arrives to camp, the welcome station is there to check your registration and then assign youth to a cabin. Find out what is inside your Survival Fun Pack this year!

Day 2, you get to make a craft at the Moose Shelter, an idea that came from Ariela, Age 12. You’ll find a clip-off section that has a fruit game, and then check-off to see all the different coloured fruit you can eat this summer!

Day 3 is Camp Galoopa’s Spaghetti and Meatballs board game, followed by a dragon story read by the campfire the next day.

If you like sports, Day 6 divides campers to do soccer clinics with Rolando, Gustavo and Juan. Also, in the evening you’ll be trying out your dance moves on the stage after having some instruction by Aiden, Age 11.

And Ninja Bob is back for his next episode, this time readers will get to meet his kids. See what they’re up to.

Wacky Winter #65

YAAAAAAH! The winter issue is here! With comics being a favourite for kids, along with BAZOOF!’s focus to encourage creativity in youth, the new comic series is a revamp of one created by Troy and Daniel when they were in Grade 5 and 6. It was featured in B! in its early years and is now returning better than ever! This issue readers not only get the first episode, but learn some of steps B!’s production team took in determining how Ninja Bob would look.

Freg has a healthy snack that is quick and easy to make in a frying pan and then readers can hop on their scooters and take a new year road trip. As they follow along, there are various tasks they can do that provide some healthy fun, along with checking out their rating at the end of their trip!

A favourite for B! readers are the short stories written by youth! This issue, Anvita, Age 9, shares a tale of Buzz the Bee and what goes wrong when he starts hanging out with some new friends. Jericho, Age 15, writes a story based on a popular movie that readers are sure to recognize. ‘Jerry the Racer’ is a car determined to make his parents proud and fulfill his dreams, with the help of his friend Cisco.

This issue also features true stories by youth! Anna, Age 12, writes of a frightening experience she had on the ski slopes. Maya, also Age 12, relates when she was able to help her friend from being bullied in her classroom.

Avah, Age 10, not only shares a very fun poem about her cat and what goes through his furry little head, but also what makes Peaches such a big part of their family!

B! received lots of holiday drawings and doubled the space in the magazine to show some of them off! Thanks to all those who participated on Oay’s Chalk Board this issue…. some great stuff!

All this and more in the upcoming WACKY WINTER 2019 issue of BAZOOF!
