Recreation Inclusion Support Program

COVID-19 Update

Recreation and Culture Services has made the difficult decision to cancel the summer program session including Summer Camps and the Outdoor Playground program.

Those enrolled in a summer program will automatically receive a refund in the form of a credit for any program fees paid to their activeOshawa account. Over the coming weeks, City staff will be contacting all program registrants, individuals on waitlists, to discuss questions relating to program cancellations and refund options.

Recreation facilities, splash pads and pools, Lakeview Park Beach and playground structures remain closed.
