Inclement Weather

If the weather is not appropriate for outdoor activities (e.g. rain, thunder, lightning, heat or smog warnings), Supie activities will be modified to ensure participant safety. Supie locations may be closed in the event of extreme weather, where it is unsafe for children to participate. 

In the case of an extended Heat Warning, all Supie Programs will be cancelled.


Behavioural Expectations

All children and youth attending recreation programs are expected to behave in a manner which ensures their own safety and the safety of other participants, staff and volunteers in the program. Children not following safety rules will not be permitted to participate. Supie staff are in the parks to implement and lead programs and are not there to replace parent/guardian supervision. Programming is not available during the lunch hour as staff are not on site at this time. Supie locations are subject to change without notice.
