You may not be aware, but June 3rd is Recreation Day and June is Recreation Month. Let’s continue the excitement after June 3’s recreation day celebrations by presenting some of the most popular events during the entire month. The Recreation Month feature series will highlight the extensive selection of activities and programs available to people of all ages in localities throughout the municipality.
Are you aware that the government provides archery programs? Come join them for beginning and recurring sessions at the Citadel Community Center during the fall, winter, and spring.
Beginners Archery (ages 10-15): Participants gain an understanding of archery while emphasizing self-discipline, responsibility, and safety. Through games and activities, participants learn the fundamentals of shooting as outlined by the National Archery in Schools Program. This class is quite regimented and lesson-focused.
Returners Archery (ages 10-15): Through games and in-class competitions, participants hone abilities acquired in the Beginners Archery Class. This lesson is more relaxed and focused on playing games. (Finishing the Beginners Class is a must.)
Adult Archery(16+): Comparable to the Returners class; informal with an emphasis on games, safety, and archery abilities.

The government is thrilled to offer summer day camps for children aged 8 to 11 in July and August at the new Halifax Common Aquatic Facility.
