Foundation helps create youth programs

Efforts of the Comox Valley Community Foundation are supporting village youth

Cumberland Recreation thanks the Comox Valley Community Foundation for their support in creating free youth programs in Cumberland. Their donation was used to purchase an inflatable obstacle course that will be available to rent for birthday parties. All proceeds go to supporting a free Youth Drop-in Gym program and other low-cost youth recreation.

Youth Drop-in Gym is a free weekly program that provides a safe space for youth to drop in, play sports and connect with friends. The program runs Wednesdays from 3-5 p.m. for ages 10 to 15. Youth are invited to play basketball, soccer, floor hockey, dodgeball or rip around on plasma cars, from now until the end of June.

The inflatable obstacle course will be used in collaboration with other agencies for events such as Pop up in the Park, Valley Families, ValleyDads Night Out and Teen Nights.

The foundation has supported Cumberland Recreation’s free Parent and Tot Gym program. Creating affordable sport and recreation programs was identified as a top priority in the Comox Valley 2016 Vital Signs.

Thanks to support from the Comox Valley Community Foundation and other partnerships, Cumberland Recreation is increasing programming that is affordable, and engages a diverse and broad segment of the community in a sustainable manner.
