Free Sunshine Summer Program returns for Saint John children

A summer of fun awaits Saint John children thanks to the return of the City’s popular Sunshine Program.

This free eight-week recreation program for children includes daily outdoor-focused activities such as sports, active games, arts and crafts, and off-site adventures for children ages 6 to 12.

The program will be offered at seven locations across the city beginning June 26 and will run until August 18, 2023.

This year’s Sunshine Program will be offered at the following locations:

  • Lorneville Community Centre
  • Island View School
  • Peter Murray Arena
  • Prince Charles School
  • Bayview School
  • Glen Falls School
  • Lakewood Heights

Morning program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and afternoon program runs from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Note: Early pick up on Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. for weekly staff meeting.)

It is important to note that this program is not a full-time, daycare service. This program requires that a parent or guardian be home and available throughout the day. There is no staff supervision during the lunch hour and children are required to go home.
