Sunshine Program

The City of Saint John is pleased to offer a FREE recreation program for children this summer. Registration is required. This year’s Sunshine Program is an 8-week program hosted at eight locations around the city.

From June 24 – August 16, 2024, the Sunshine Program will be offered at the following locations across Saint John.

Confirmed sites:

  • Lorneville Community Center
  • Island View School
  • Barnhill School
  • PES School
  • Lakewood Heights
  • Bayside School
  • Loch Lomond School
  • Prince Charles School

The Sunshine Program is an outdoor-focused program for Saint John children ages 6 to 12. Daily activities include sports, active games, arts and crafts and off-site adventures. 

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.

Registration may be completed online or in person upon your first visit to the program location of your choice.
