Rec Guide offers variety of activities for Spring-Summer season

Bugaboo University taking registrations for September

The 2015 Spring-Summer Recreation Guide is launching Bugaboo University – the newest, and possibly cutest, addition to early childhood education designed to spark the imagination and learning amongst the youngest of family members.

Enrolment for Bugaboo University starts March 11 for the September 2015 term. Led by an early childhood educator, Bugaboo University is your community early learning centre for children three to five years old to learn and explore through play and meaningful interactions. Programs cover a range of activities, including science and math exploration, open-ended art experiences and early literacy to kickstart a love for life-long learning and kindergarten readiness.

The Spring-Summer Rec Guide will hit the streets on March 4, and features all the information families need to keep moving.

“Spring is the perfect time to get active, and the new Rec Guide offers so many different programs to help you explore community amenities and activities,” said Penticton Mayor Andrew Jakubeit.

Outdoor enthusiasts can sign on for kayak wine tours, stand-up paddle board yoga or learning to rappel down the legendary Skaha Bluffs. Favourites return with our Summer Day Camps for kids that will ignite your child's imagination, keep them active and building lasting memories and friendships. The Youth Park Ambassador program is back to provide a positive, safe environment for all users of the Penticton Youth Park.

The Recreation Guide also includes children, youth, adult and fitness programs, skating lessons for children, drop-in sports schedules, aquatic fitness and more. Swimming lessons are extremely popular and a lifelong lifesaving skill that is essential for Penticton's waterfront lifestyle.

The Rec Guide is also taking a holistic approach to life – providing the community with featured updates on the Youth Engagement Strategy (YES Project) to highlight how Penticton youth are engaging in the community, as well as kickstarting the new “Raw Food” cooking series to bring new perspective to the dinner table in the pursuit of a healthy and balanced nutrition.

Active members enjoy early registration and discounts on programs so this is a great time to become a member.
