Virtual Activities

To best engage and reach youth in Thunder Bay, we started running virtual recreational programming! From art to baking to exploring new hobbies - there is something for everyone! All events are free. To register for virtual events this summer please see our online registration portal. 

In order to reduce waste and ensure all participants have the materials needed to participate in our virtual events, we are introducing "Virtual Base Craft Kits" to our program.  The kits contain: white glue, hot glue gun and sticks, ruler, scissors, tape, pen, pencil, sharpie, pencil crayons etc.  The kits are available to purchase through perfect mind with all of our events, and will be included with your virtual kit pick up.  We will no longer be providing those items in the weekly virtual kits.

Reminder: In order to withdraw and get a full refund you will need to let us know at least 3 days prior to the event or a refund will not be granted.  This is to ensure that all of the supplies we purchase for these events go to participants that are able to attend.
