Children's Programs

Three children’s programs make their home in the Oakridge Community Centre: the Before & After School Care Program and Winter Break and Spring Break Camps – both community-run, as well as the privately owned and operated Tools for Kids Preschool.

In addition, over the summer months, the Community Centre, through the Oakridge Racquet Club, provides Kids Tennis Programs and Kids Tennis Summer Camps

Oakridge Holidays Adventure Program

Throughout the summer we will be adding special activities to our weekly program. Some of these activities are group based, while others are based upon the individual child’s interest and skill level. Individual projects provide children with the opportunity to discover hidden talents while working on short term, as well as long term summer projects. We also have “Activity Jars” which are suggestions for quirky fun activities that involve one or more children, and will be accessible during free play.

  • group fun . . . pool parties, soccer games, water fights, “jump start”, running club, skippers club, basketball, floor hockey
  • individual fun . . . reading club, technology and science projects, music and movement/yoga, crocheting, knitting, corking, chess and game club, sketching and journaling, photography and movie making, scrapbooking, sewing (hand and machine sewing), plus special art projects
  • challenge books . . . every day throughout the summer children will have the opportunity to challenge themselves in a variety of fun and extra exciting activities. For every challenge children complete they will have the opportunity to earn leadership loonies. The more children do, the more they earn!
