Programs will put a spring in your step

Penticton recreation department offering a host of programs for children and adults

Spring is here and that means new programs for all ages at the Penticton Community Centre.   Parents should take note that we have combined our spring and summer season.

This means that you can register your kids for summer day camps earlier, so don’t miss out as spring camp sold out and many of our JCI summer camps and “Fabulous Fridays” pre-school events sold out last year too.

We are offering more programs for preschoolers, more outdoor adventure and way more creative programs to bring out your artistic side with new watercolour, music and drama classes as well as week-long arts and crafts classes.

For the young at heart, take a look at our Zumba for older adults, our cool Natures Fare cooking classes or get out on one of our nature hikes with Hoodoo Adventures.  Lyndie and the Hoodoo gang are even offering subsidized children’s kayak and kid’s outdoor adventure programs thanks to fundraising from the Santa Fun Run.

JCI Day Camp is back with fun themes like the Amazing Race vs. the Crazy Olympics, Survivor week or 2012 “A Space Odyssey”.  We are pleased to announce that Becky from Par-T-Perfect is the host of our Monday through Friday morning summer preschool programs.  The little tykes can sign up for the Mad Hatters Tea Party, Fairy Fantasy, Super Sport Sampler and many more cool programs.

I know I’m focusing on the children’s programs, but that’s where the magic and summer memories are created that last a lifetime.

Remember that you can go online at to see our new Recreation Guide and can even register from the comfort of your home or call us at 250-490-2426.




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