Burst into summer with local recreation options

The District of Fort St. James’ Summer Recreation Program activities are set to begin.

The District of Fort St. James’ Summer Recreation Program activities are set to begin.  This year we’re offering tons of youth programs (ages 5 & up) beginning with a day full of free family activities on Canada Day, Sunday July 1.

Our Event Coordinator Mel Chesnutt has been working hard to ensure our Nation’s birthday will be action-packed.   Join us all day for food, prizes, fireworks and fun down at Cottonwood Park.

The recreation program is also offering a free hike up Mount Pope as well as a free end of season bash in August so be sure to pre-register to join in the festivities!

There is still room to attend many of our programs so stop by the office for registration.

Co-ed Beach Volleyball is back again as well.

It started on Monday June 25 and continues on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-9 p.m. throughout the summer.  Come on out and watch.

We’re hosting our first recreation programs next week so tune in for some highlights.

If you have any questions call Lisa at the District Office (250) 996-8233, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m..
