Castlegar Complex offering outdoor summer programming

Kids camps and adult fitness classes will be offered.

Registration for summer programming at the Castlegar and District Community Complex is now open.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) will be offering outdoor programming at the Complex during July and August.

“We will continue to follow the guidance and recommendations of province health officials,” said Joe Chirico, General Manager of Community Services. “We have reviewed spaces where outdoor programs will run and have reduced the number of attendees to a level that will adhere to current physical distancing directives.”

Summer Cool Camps for kids will happen between July 6 and August 28 with two and three day camp options. Other kids programs include Red Cross babysitting and Home Alone Safety.

For adults there is Bodyweight Bootcamp and Morning Gentle Vinyasa Flow.

The RDCK is also introducing two off-site summer programs — a water safety ambassador and a park ambassador.

The water safety ambassador will be available at beaches throughout the district. They will advise users on water safety and provide helpful tips and family friendly activities on drowning prevention education.

The park ambassador program will be present at RDCK parks across the region. They will talk with residents about safe, social outdoor activities to promote healthy and active lifestyles during the pandemic. Park ambassadors will also talk to the public about park usage and other amenities they would like to see in the future.

While indoor pools in Nelson and Castlegar will remain closed, the RDCK has announced that the outdoor pool in Salmo will be opening soon.
