David Armstrong Summer Camp Bursary

David Armstrong was a teacher, mentor, coach and community member of Chester. David believed in the importance of participation in activities that developed a student’s physical, emotional, spiritual, artistic and academic well-being.

The David Armstrong Memorial Basketball Tournament was founded to raise money for a summer camp bursary to help support students wishing to attend a summer camp. The bursary is available to all students in grades 6-8 and is open in supporting a variety of different summer camps. Click the link for the David Armstrong Summer Camp Bursary form.
