In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Markham’s Recreation Department is now offering the Pop-up Park Program – providing safe and convenient 1.5-hour programs for kids ages 6 to 12.
The Pop-Up Park Program includes a variety of classic outdoor camp games and physical literacy activities modified to adhere to physical distancing protocols. There are also icebreakers, stories, brain games, and creativity challenges! Each program will be centred on fun, making friends, getting active, and connecting with nature.
Programs will be available at 32 parks across the City. Get outside, get active and have some fun this summer!
All programs support the development of your child’s physical literacy as part of the City’s ‘Markham in Motion’ program. Developing these skills help kids gain confidence and motivates them to lead healthier active lives as they grow up. Physically literate children are happier, healthier and more confident which leads them to perform better in school!
