Carman Dufferin Recreation is gearing up for a busy summer here in Carman. We have lots of new programs, as well as favourite older programs to offer Carman and surrounding Communities. Here is what you can look forward to, to make your summer as fun as ever!

All schedules, as well as registration,  can be viewed online at www.carmandufferinrecreation.com

We are extremely excited to have a few new fun additions to Kings Park! This includes new Horseshoe Pits to replace the old ones, and NEW box hockey boxes for something new to learn. Both of these games are located just east of the Carman Dufferin Pool. Equipment to play these games can be borrowed from the Poolhouse by asking the cashiers!

To utilize these new games as best as possible, the Carman Dufferin Recreation is having a Drop In Horseshoe night. This will take place at the Horseshoe pits every Tuesday evening from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. It begins June 11 and runs through until August 27.

An old fitness program will have a new spin to it this year, as we bring Drums Alive to Kings Park! Drums Alive combines the benefit of a fitness program with the benefits of music and rhythm. Amanda Rempel from Morden will be coming out on Thursday evenings from July 18 to August 22 to instruct this program. It will be $60 to register for five one-hour classes. Beginner classes are from 6 p.m. and intermediate classes are at 7 p.m. All you need to do is bring your exercise ball!

Day Camp will be in full swing at the end of the school year. Children ages 5-12 are invited to CDR’s Summer Day Camp program. It runs from July 2 – August 30, Monday through Fridays from 8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. If you register before June 30 the cost is $17 per day and is $20 per day anytime afterwards. Every week has a new theme! Some themes include, Disney Week, Water Week, Safari Week, Sports Week and many more!

The Carman Dufferin Pool and the Splash Pad are officially open for the season! Season pool passes, as well as Aquafit and lap swim passes can be purchased from the pool office or the Recreation office now!
