PLEASE NOTE:
Our Recreation team is using the current information and guidelines from Provincial agencies to inform our summer recreation program offerings. As COVID-19 is unpredictable, we will continue to be adaptable.

Programs may need to be changed, moved or cancelled as the pandemic and associated measures evolve. Refunds and/or credits will be made available as needed. We ask that you be patient and understanding if changes need to be made throughout the course of the summer. Thank you.

 

Time Based Memberships 

The RDCK is cancelling all time based memberships, backdated to March 17, 2020. You can use your account credit to pay for summer fitness and recreation programming or leave the credit on your account so you can purchase new memberships when our facilities re-open. You can also request a refund (3-4 weeks to process) by emailing your recreation facility.
