Craft Fusion Success!
11 June 2015
So many happy faces dropped by the office this week, since they were lucky winners of a door prize at Craft Fusion, held at the Batawa Community Centre. One winner said she was an employee of the Shoe Factory in Batawa for 23 years until they closed. She told me about her love for her job and how much she missed working at the factory.
The over 200 guests really seemed to enjoy the displays of local artwork and crafts. Many guests commented on the uniqueness and high quality of the show. One gentlemen said of the many shows he has attended, it was

Planning for Fun!
3 June 2015
Summer camp is fast approaching and we are all very excited here at the Batawa Ski Hill! Camp begins in four short weeks. Morgan, the camp director, and I, the summer camp Coordinator, are very busy working away at planning the best upcoming summer camp possible.

When Snow Turns to Water
27 May 2015
Standing on a dry, but green lawn at the bottom of Batawa Ski Hill, it is hard to believe that less than 6 weeks ago, the grounds of the ski hill had been covered in several feet of snow, playing host to over a thousand people for a snowmobile race.
I had just finished my first ski season at the ski hill, and for the first time, I was sad to see winter go. The opportunity to learn to ski and to be active and outdoors in winter – when I and many others tend to go into hibernation – has been a rewarding experience.
But though the ski
