Every effort will be made to ensure that all Recreation facilities remain open during regular hours of operation, with programs and services to the public continuing to operate as normal. In the event of severe, adverse weather, please check our website for details.
expandSupervision of Children
Our facilities are public places and open to all members of the community. To ensure the safety of all patrons, children under 10 years of age, must be accompanied by a parent/guardian of at least 14 years of age. Where attending a registered program, the child under 10 years of age need not be accompanied throughout the program (unless otherwise stated) however, the parent/guardian must remain in the building during the program (programs in excess of two (2) consecutive hours excluded).
expandSafe Arrival & Departure
In order to ensure the safety of our participants, parents/guardians are required to accompany their child to the program area when dropping them off and come into the program area to pick them up. Please ensure that the staff member is aware of your presence when you return to pick up your child. In the event that your child is being picked up by someone else, please inform the staff member at the beginning of the program.​

If inappropriate behaviour occurs, it will be recorded, reported and may result in removal from the program and/or facility.​
expandPeanut/Nut Allergy Alert
Due to the increased number of children with peanut/nut allergies, we request that nut products not be brought into programs. For programming that requires participants bring a lunch, please avoid packing peanut butter sandwiches or food that contains nut products (e.g. granola bars).​
expandMedication
To ensure participants’ wellbeing, please make sure that our staff is aware of any severe allergies or medical conditions. It is strongly recommended that children take any necessary medication at home under the supervisor of a parent/guardian. Participants that require medication during program hours must have a parent/guardian complete and sign a Personal Information Record available from program or camp staff.​

The Community Services Department encourages and welcomes participants with disabilities (please see specific program options on page 81 of the brochure). Admission fees may be waived for Support Persons accompanying a person with a disability, as long as the support person is not participating in the program/service (some restrictions may apply).

expandWaitlists & Waitlist Etiquette

Due to the popularity of our programming, you may find the course that you want is already full and you will be prompted to add your name to the waitlist. When on a waitlist, if a space becomes available or another opportunity opens up, you will be contacted by staff to offer you the spot. As well, by adding your name to the waitlist you help us identify the need for additional programming for our ever growing city.

Waitlist Etiquette
We would ask that you please consider the following when choosing to go onto a waitlist:

  • Only waitlist once for each program, for each participant. Being on multiple waitlists does not increase your chances of getting into the program.
  • Choose either to stay on the waitlist or register for the same program at a different time - but not both. By doing both, you limit the opportunity for another participant to enjoy our programs. Please be considerate and help us accommodate as many participants as possible.​
