Summer Programs!

The Community Services Department has lots planned for you this summer! Registration is required for all programs (including the free ones). This is to ensure everyone’s safety as we follow current Provincial Health orders.

  • Recreation Programs
    • Shell’s Slice of Summer includes FREE activities for everyone. Sign up for the Enchanted Forest & Fairies, or the Starry Nights Carnival.
