Penticton Rec Guide hitting your doorstep

Penticton Community Centre is offering programs for all ages in fall and winter

We hope that you’ve enjoyed your summer.  As summer comes to a close and thoughts of fall planning begin, we would like to share with you some of our programs that are featured in our Fall/Winter Recreation Guide which comes out in Wednesday’s Western News.  You will find many new programs as well as many of your old favorites.

Our preschool-age programs have some exciting new additions such as Baby Beat and Tiny Tuners with music therapist Christie Millard.  Christie also has a children’s after-school program using Suzuki hand chimes. Robin is back with new preschool morning programs like Gak, Goo and You, Teddy Bear Picnic and Leaping Lizards Playtime.  Every Friday she has a themed special event.

Brenda Konyi will not only be doing Saturday morning Tots ‘n Tykes programs like Knights and Dragons, Gobble Good Time, Halloween Extravaganza and Christmas at the North Pole, but will host our weekday morning Childminding program.

We are actually looking for volunteers to assist Brenda with Childminding, Monday to Friday from 8:30-11:45 a.m. September to June.  Enjoy a flexible schedule, a great work environment and your volunteer hours can be credited towards classes, fitness room and the swimming pool.  It’s a great way to share your enthusiasm with babies and preschool children, enjoy your Community Centre and meet new people.

Our children’s programs have some new additions; Emily is offering Jazz Dance for 9-11 years, teens and adults.  We have added new Kid’s Yoga, Junior Basketball, Ballet One,  as well as “intro” to curling and lacrosse programs.

Teens can try Billiards, Winter Survival, Teen Zumba, tennis and the “Just us Girls” lifestyle sampler program or get their Red Cross Babysitting certificate.

Many of our classes can be sampled during the “Try It” week.  This is a great way to see if a program is a fit for you.  Adults can try programs like art classes, billiards, yoga, tai chi and other eastern arts.  For more information on “Try It” week, look in our Recreation Guide on page 10 and 11.

Don’t forget that the recreation programs are also for the winter season and include the famous spring break camps too. We look forward to seeing you at your Community Centre this fall.




Bob Pope is the recreation co-ordinator with the City of Penticton.
