Youth Activity Centre
The Youth Activity Centre is for youth ages 13 to 17 years and is free of charge.. Staff supervise each centre with training in the area of being a caring adult, play, friends, mastery and participation. Each staff member is certified with High Five Principles of Healthy Childhood Development, Standard First Aid and CPR.
Since 1994 the Parks and Recreation Department has operated the Youth Activity Centre program in local neighbourhoods. The Playground Program operates at two school gymnasiums in the summer.
The purpose of the Youth Activity Centre is to provide a cost-efficient active living program utilizing school gymnasiums and establish an atmosphere conducive to socialization and learning.
2020 Youth Activity Centre coming soon! The Youth Activity Centre’s are generously sponsored by Saskatchewan Lotteries and Community Initiative Fund.
