Summer at the Centre 

Welcome to the Summer 2024 Youth Program Guide! We are gearing up for another fun-filled and eventful summer! Included in this guide you will find information on Camp Centre and Youth Character Initiative (YCI).

We have a variety of program options available this summer and we are confident you will find just the right fit for your children that also fits your schedule.

Camp Centre is designed for children 4 - 8 years old. Children will be busy throughout the summer swimming in the Centre pool with our waterslide, play structure, and splash pad! We will also be taking local field trips to parks where children will play large group games and have the opportunity to enjoy nature at its finest. We almost forgot to mention, we will take a field trip each week! It is going to be an exciting summer. You can expect to pick up your child each day with a big smile on their faces from all of the fun they had and maybe some messy clothes from playing outside all day or doing lots of arts and crafts.

YCI is for youth ages 9 - 14 and we focus on building future leaders. Many of our current and past staff have come through our YCI program. YCI is limited to 13 youth per week so we can focus on the experience the kids will have. Each week the kids will take one field trip and work with our Camp Centre kids as junior counselors. Yes, they also get to use the Centre’s pool at least twice per week!

We are excited for the summer and seeing your children join us in daily adventures.
