|Paint the Ice
Come join us and celebrate the changing of the seasons! With the ice surface on its way out for summer we're going to send it out in style by painting the entire surface! We use the same ice paint that creates the lines and goalie creases so while water soluable it is strongly pigmented compared to craft paint, so remember to bring "messy clothes" along with a helmet!
Taking Place: Late March or Early April 2019 (actual event date will be determined by the wrap up of the hockey season)
Parent & Tot Skate
This program is for preschoolers and their parent/guardian to enjoy time together on the ice. Hockey sticks and pucks are not permitted during this time, and children must wear a helmet while on the ice.
*Does not take place during school holidays or PD Day, and times may be cancelled as the result of school league hockey games.
To double check ice availability check with municipal staff at 519-441-2601
Walk This Way: Walking and Talking Parenting Group (children of all ages)
Program facilitated by Rural Response for Healthy Children. What's more fun than to bring your children in strollers/baby carriers and walk the Central Huron Community Complex track, while chatting and getting to know other parents. All parents are welcome even if your children are in school! The Central Huron YMCA staff will be joining in during your walks to do stroller-cise and some simple and fun exercising. Healthy snack and water provided. Wear comfy clothes and indoor running shoes. *New this Year* Some Wednesdays have also been set aside for parents and kids to enjoy some quality physical activity time out on the ice rink.

Wellness Access for Youth (Ages 10 - 13 yrs)

Please see a wellness staff member to set up an orientation. After receiving the orientation, youth ages 10-13 must always be accompanied by a parent and/or guardian 16 years of age or older when accessing the Wellness Centre.
