Youth rec workers hit it out of the park this summer
This past summer, children of all ages participated in camps held by Recreation Programming. From arts and crafts, to music and dance, to sports and games, more than 807 themed camps were held in 83 locations across the municipality. Of course, the success of these camps would not be possible without our seasonal youth employees.
These 700+ energetic and talented workers held positions such as camp leaders, lifeguards, activity instructors, and Rec Van staff, just to name a few. Specific employees were trained in inclusion support, ensuring children of all abilities were able to participate.
To prepare the next generation of summer staff, more than 500 youths (aged 13-15 years) registered for the Youth Leadership Program, where they developed leadership skills and job readiness through fun and challenging learning experiences.
A special thank you to municipal staff who trained and supported our youth workers – we look forward to seeing them all next summer!
