Mount Thom Park Mount Thom Park came into being in 1943 with the purchase of a 38ha forested area from the Province. The park has since grown to 70ha with the purchase of additional lands, the dedication of subdivision land and riparian areas in Promontory and, most recently, the donation of 8ha of land on Ross Road for “Karver’s Trail”. The focal point of Mount Thom Park is the 484m high Mount Thom. The summit offers views over Promontory, Sardis and Cultus Lake. There are several access points to the park: five from Promontory: Teskey Way, Thom Creek Drive, Sylvan Drive, MacFarlane Place and MacLachlan Place as well as three from Ryder Lake: Forester Road, Churchill Parkway and Ross Road. The park contains one of the few remaining accessible stands of mature Douglas Fir as well as a variety of other tree species including Western Hemlock, Broad Leaf Maple, alder and cottonwood. The park is home to wildlife including: deer, squirrels, chipmunk and the occasional black bear. The park now contains over 7ha of trails ranging in difficulty from easy to moderate. The Thom Creek Trail, the longest in the park, gains over 300m elevation over 3km to its junction with the Lookout Loop Trail then another 50m to the summit. The length and vertical gain can be extended by starting at the Jinkerson Stairs or Bailey - Rexford Trail. The Horse Loop Trail, combined with the Lookout Loop Trail, is the most popular hike from the Ryder Lake side of the park. The trail starts at the parking lot on Churchill Parkway, ascending the upper portion of the Horse Loop Trail then the Lookout Loop Trail to the summit. Karver’s Trail, the most recently constructed trail in the park, was constructed on land donated to the City in memory of Karver Morford. From the trailhead on Ross Road, the trail starts as a gravel driveway then climbs 190m over 1.3 km where it joins the Thom Creek Trail to the summit. In addition to the main trails within the park, the Ridgeline and Viewpoint trails provide additional variety. Trails within the park can be combined with trails from the Promontory area, shown on the map, to provide longer hikes. For further information on this park or other parks and trails visit the City of Chilliwack website Chilliwack.com

Swimming Lesson Descriptions Parent & Tot (6 – 35 months) In this program we introduce your child to water, build their water con¿dence, and educate you as the parent on pertinent water safety. Our program consists of singing songs and playing interactive games, through fun group activities we will appeal to your child’s curiosity and desire for play, while we increase their comfort in and under the water. In addition, we will promote balance and movement; and begin swim skill acquisition. Preschool 1 (Ages 3 – 5) In this beginner level, all skills are assisted by the instructor.

Chilliwack Family YMCA

YMCA Programs for Children & Youth

Parents with young kids are tight on time and energy. That’s why we focus on making our programs easy to ďŹ t into your schedule, while giving you the chance to exercise and recharge. Whether you’re playing games together on Family Night, dropping in for a swim, introducing your child to new activities or each ďŹ nding your own way to be active at the Y, you can be conďŹ dent you are growing as a family. YMCA memberships include programs for kids and adults at the best times of day.

Excellent pre-school and physical literacy programs for healthly child development YMCA Youth Leadership Development YLD is a safe, fun, comfortable environment where you can build self-esteem, lifelong friendships and develop strong leadership skills. Plus, you’ll meet new people and have fun. MEND - Mind, Exercise, Nutrition... Do It! Trying to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle can be challenging. With school, an abundance of screen time and a busy family life, kids are spending less time being active and as a result, many are above a healthy weight. Helping kids grow up strong and healthy is why the YMCA exists. That’s why we oer MEND, a provincially funded program that empowers children and families to become mUUFSBOEIFBMUIJFS5IJTGSFFBOEGVOXFFLQSPHSBNTVQQPSUTDIJMESFOBHFT 7-13 who are above a healthy body weight to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Parents/ caregivers join their children in each session to learn about how to choose healthier foods and spend more time being physically active. Licensed Child Care Choosing a child care provider is a big decision. You want your child to feel at home, learn, grow and have fun in an environment that is welcoming,safe and stimulating. And most of all you want caring and supportive caregivers who understand what makes your child special. Through both our early years and before and after school licensed programs, kids learn values and positive behaviours in a supportive environment. Children have the opportunity to be active, have fun and develop conďŹ dence. Plus, parents get the peace of mind knowing that children are active and learning while spending time with friends and positive adult role models.
