Summer registration for recreation programming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that summer recreation programs have once again been planned in accordance with public health guidelines.

Currently public health is allowing for multiple cohorts of 15 children in day camps and camp activities can be provided in both an indoor and outdoor setting while maintaining physical distancing protocols. Both full-day and half-day camps are planned to be offered for this summer. If there are changes to COVID-19 guidelines, staff will work with public health to assess and adjust programs as needed to balance the safety of all participants and staff.

Registration is currently scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. each of the following days for all ages:

Day camps and dryland programs

  • Wednesday, May 5 – July programs
  • Wednesday, June 2 – August programs

Indoor/outdoor pool and beach programs

  • Thursday, June 3 – July programs
  • Wednesday, July 14 – August programs

Detailed information on registration and programs will be viewable online as of Thursday, April 22 on

Participants are encouraged to register by phone at (902)-490-6666, online or in-person at their local recreation centre. If registering for programs at municipal partner recreation facilities, please contact those facilities directly.​

Residents are reminded they may continue to use REC at Home which offers a variety of activities that you can enjoy with your family – from arts and crafts, to at-home fitness workouts.
