Registered programs update

New outdoor programs (outdoor fitness classes and Play in the Park) have been created to meet Alberta Health Services guidelines to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Visit for the full schedule and to register.

All previously scheduled Strathcona County summer camps and registered indoor summer programs have been cancelled and refunds have been processed. For any inquiries about refunds, please call 780-467-2211.
