Youth Week

Youth Week is a provincial celebration held annually during the first week of May. It's a fun-filled week celebrating youth, your diversity and the positive contributions you make in their communities. 

Recreation staff have planned a full week of pre-registered activities at recreation facilities and around the community for Youth Week. Free contests, games, arts and crafts, sports drop-ins, wellness activities, swimming, skating and more are planned, with COVID-19 protocols in place. All abilities welcome.
