MEET UPS

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMMING HAS ARRIVED

MEET UP is an opportunity for students and beyond, to connect once a month throughout the school year. MEET UP will vary from being an intentional full or part day focusing on skill development, being active and meeting new people. MEET UP offers a safe and encouraging space to acquire new skills or develop existing ones. We welcome students of all ages and fitness levels and offer a variety of activities, prices and program length options. As with all of our programs, we seek to facilitate a Christ-centered experience by creating a focused yet rejuvenating atmosphere.

 

Check out if any of our upcoming MEET UPs are right for you! Additional details about each event are found in the table below as well as any forms that need to be filled out prior to coming. If you have any questions, feel free to contact michellem@coldwatercanada.org
