The Community Services department offers fun and engaging summer programs for children and youth during July and August (2020 programming has been cancelled). There is something for everyone! Our full day youth camps give participants the opportunity to see old friends and make some new ones. Programs are held in local communities including Alberta Beach, Lessard Lake Outdoor Education Centre, Mayerthorpe, Onoway and Sangudo.

Please see below for pandemic-related changes to the County's 2020 children and youth summer programming.

2020 Children and Youth Summer Programs Cancelled

It is with great disappointment that Community Services announces the cancellation of its children and youth summer programs in their standard formats. Accordingly, the highly-anticipated summer programs brochure will not be published this summer. These cancellations are the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the public health restrictions enacted by the Chief Medical Officer of Health for the province, Dr. Deena Hinshaw.

Community Services Team to Consider Limited Programming

As many citizens are aware, the COVID-19 situation is ever evolving; if and when circumstances allow, Community Services will revisit the possibility of delivering limited programming in a different format. Any updates to summer programming information will be shared via the County’s media channels as it becomes available.
