YKACL Summer Youth Program

Jul 03, 2018 01:30 PM - Aug 24, 2018 04:30 PM
Early bird registration for the 2018 YKACL Summer Youth Program has begun! The free program begins on July 3 and runs from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays until August 24. Participation is open to teens and young adults aged 13 to 21 living in Yellowknife, Ndilo and Dettah. Young people with or without a disability are encouraged to participate. This year’s tentative schedule features indoor and outdoor sports, dance classes, trips to the beach and pool, Dene handgames, gardening, yoga, hands-on workshops, art projects, and many more unique summer experiences! Participants can register at any time but are encouraged to register before June 29 if possible. Early registration helps us to plan for the number of participants in a day so we may maintain the necessary staff/participant ratio. There is no cost to register or participate. Participants may attend every weekday or decide which days work for them. For example, a participant may choose to attend one day a week while another may attend daily. If participants will be missing due to family holidays, please let us know when you register to help with planning. Please share information about this exciting summer program with any young people or families who may be keen to get involved. To register, or for more information, please contact Michael or Vera at inclusion2@ykacl.ca or inclusion@ykacl.ca.
