Brandon, MB – City of Brandon Parks & Recreation Services is pleased to offer another year of FREE Youth Activity Centre (YAC) programming aimed at providing fun, creative, and safe opportunities for youth to enjoy during the summer months. All centers provide a variety of fun, free activities, with a focus on sports, arts and crafts, dances, BBQ days, theme days, pool days, and more!  

This year, programming will be offered from Tuesday, July 4th through to Thursday, August 24th from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at three locations: 

  • YAC Junior (Valleyview Community Centre, 77 Whillier Drive) – Ages 7-9 years

For the health and safety of all involved with the program, youth who do not fall into the appropriate age categories WILL NOT be able to participate. No exceptions! 

An early registration and BBQ kick-off event will be held at the East End Community Centre (405 Park Street) on Wednesday, June 7th from 3:30 – 7 p.m., with a rain date of Thursday, June 8th. Hot Dog, Chips and Drink can be purchased for $5, with additional individual items for $2 each to help raise funds for this years’ YAC program. Please note that YAC registration does not guarantee access. Space is granted daily on a first come, first served basis with maximum capacities enforced. 

The YAC program is offered in partnership with the Central Council of Community Centres who offer support through the receipt of provincial and federal grants. This partnership helps to ensure YAC is free for youth in our community.
