Following the Public Health Officer’s orders announced on Nov. 7, the District is cancelling all fitness classes, gym sports and registered recreation programming, except for Club Kids, effective Nov. 7 at 10 pm until Nov. 23 at noon. Read the full release for more details.

Recreation during COVID
Mission Parks, Recreation and Culture staff have been actively working to bring safe & fun recreation to Mission. Recreation during COVID looks a bit different – here’s what to expect:
- All programs are pre-registered.
- Participants are checked in by a facility host.
- Specific entrances and exits are used for different activities to promote physical distancing and reduce congestion.
- Masks are required when coming and going between activities.
- Handwashing and sanitizing takes place before each activity.
Programs aim to minimize potential exposure to participants through:
- Behind the scenes staff are cleaning and sanitizing equipment and facilities between sessions.
- Program numbers are limited to ensure physical distancing.
- Lessons and programs are set-up to ensure physical distancing.
- Equipment will not be shared between participants.
As reopening progresses, more programs will become available for registration. Please ensure to follow Parks, Recreation and Culture on Facebook and Twitter or get the latest from the updates section on this page.

Club K.I.D.S (Kids Ideas Developing Skills) is a fun and educational recreation program for children aged 5-11 years (K to Grade 6), conveniently located in their own school. CK offers supervised leisure activities to children in a group setting with their elementary school peers. CK is a licensed facility (through Fraser Health) and due to the time and location of the program, it is often used by many parents as an alternative to daycare, babysitters, or being home alone. Find out more about the Club KIDS program, registration process, safety measures and more.
