Did you know that the City of Calgary offers community-based summer recreational programs that are FREE? If you aren’t familiar with them, here is our guide so you can take advantage of them in your neighbourhood.
Park n’ Play is a free outdoor drop-in program for children aged 6 to 12. Drop your kids off from 10 am – 3:30 pm and they’ll keep busy with loads of activities, games, and crafts. Organizers divide the kids into two age groups where possible (ages 6-8 and 9-12) so that everyone can take part in age-appropriate activities. See schedule for dates and locations where the program is being held.
If your child is younger than six, they can take part in Stay n’ Play, a free outdoor drop-in program for children aged 3 to 5. Adult participation in the programs is mandatory, so parents or caregivers must accompany kids throughout the duration of the program. For the best program experience and supervision of your child, it’s strongly recommended that parents/guardians attend the program with no more than two children within this age group. See schedule for dates and locations where the program is being held. Stay n’ Play runs between 10 am and 12 pm.
For more information on these programs, be sure to read the program FAQs. These are drop-in programs and there is a maximum number of children at each location for health and safety reasons.
