We encourage kids to get active from a young age, so let's forget about the screens and play like it's 1985! Check out one of the Recreation & Culture Division's many high quality programs and activities for kids and youth in Thunder Bay. In each of the programs and services below, we offer

1) Trained Staff: Staff are trained in Standard First Aid with Level C CPR and HIGH FIVE Principles of Health Childhood Development, as well as program specific training which includes a number of topics including behaviour management, conflict resolution and inclusion strategies.

2) Nut Safe Program: Our Programs are nut safe. Please ensure any food you are sending does not contain nuts or nut products.

3) Junior Inclusion Services: Junior Inclusion Services facilitates the inclusion of children and youth disabilities in our programs. If you are interested in accessing  JIS, please call 625-3220 BEFORE registering or attending the program. Please see the JIS ad in The Key or clink on the JIS link below for more information.

4) Personal Support Worker: Our programs welcome children and youth to bring their own PSW. Please consider letting registration or program staff know before attending the program, so we can help to fully include both the child/youth and the PSW.

5) TO REGISTER Call 625-TIME (8463): Please ensure you have enough time to verify contact information and provide additional details. Payment for registered programs can be taken over the phone with a credit card, while other methods are taken in person.
