*Recreation program closures due to COVID-19*

City recreation and culture facilities and programs have been temporarily closed for an indefinite period as part of the City’s COVID-19 response.

Youth Move

Youth Move is for anyone between the ages of 12 and 18 looking for some excitement. This program offers both drop-in sites and registered special events for youth.

Drop in Sites

Youth Move Drop in Sites are year-round spaces where youth are free to drop by.  Drop in for food, gaming, social atmosphere, board games and much more.  Join in and tell us what programs and events you want!

Special events

Youth Move has a variety of different events for youth to check out throughout the year.  All of our special events are registered events.  To register for any of our special events please call 625-8463. 

Spring Events

Staff are proceeding to apply program registration credits for Spring programs being cancelled.  This credit can be used towards any City Recreational Programs in the future.  Clients wishing to request a refund instead of a credit to their account may call 625-2227 or 684-3323 on Wednesday April 8th , otherwise please leave a voicemail or email communityservices@thunderbay.ca with contact information only.  Please do not leave credit card information over voicemail or email- staff will get back to you.  Refunds may take 3-4 weeks to process.
