Please register early to avoid disappointment. A 100% refund is granted when we cancel a program. When a class has been cancelled due to instructor illness or weather conditions, a class will be added on at the end of the session. If this is not possible, you will be issued a refund in the amount of the missed class.

Oops, changed your plans?:

A refund will be issued if we receive applicable withdrawal notification. Programs and lessons require five (5) or more days’ notice prior to course start date. Camps and certification courses require seven (7) or more days’ notice prior to course start date. If appropriate notice is not given, no refund will be issued. There may be other exceptions to these guidelines. In some cases, these exceptions will be noted in the individual course description. To request a refund, please contact the facility that is offering your program. Taking COVID-19 into consideration, if the Province of British Columbia is in a declared State of Emergency, the notice of cancellation will be waived. All refunds are subject to a $5 processing fee.

COVID-19 & Recreation The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s (CVRD) ability to deliver programs and services to its citizens. Many services were temporarily stopped or modified in response to COVID-19 to ensure the health and well-being of the community and staff. The CVRD has developed the COVID-19 Restoration of Programs and Services Plan to assist with the gradual process and decision making needed to restore services. This process will be guided by information and advice from health authorities, other levels of government, WorkSafeBC, and other stakeholder groups such as the BC Recreation & Parks Association (BCRPA), Lifesaving Society of BC, VIA Sport BC and provincial and national sport governing bodies. Our Community Services Department is focused on getting back to a “new normal” and restart our Recreation facilities to help you get back to being active, healthy and connected to your community in a safe manner. Additional precautions have been put in place to minimize risk, which includes facility safety plans and program guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all.

PHYSICAL LITERACY

PHYSICAL LITERACY

Physical literacy is the key to being

ACTIVE FOR LIFE What is Physical Literacy?

Physical Literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. (The International Physical Literacy Association, May 2014) Physical activity is a lot more fun when we’re physically literate. If we want children to be active for life, they need to develop physical literacy at a young age. Physicalliteracy.ca offers coaches, recreation professionals and health practitioners access to a wide range of resources that can help people become physically literate.

What are Fundamental Movement Skills?

Fundamental movement skills are the foundation for an active life. This list contains 25 fundamental movement skills which children can learn:

9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9

Balancing Catching Climbing Cycling Dodging Dribbling Hopping Jumping

9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9

Kicking Landing Rhythmic Movement Rotating Running Skating / Skiing Skipping Sliding

Striking with an implement Striking with hand Swimming Throwing Trapping with an implement Trapping with feet/body Tumbling Walking

This symbol denotes Physical Literacy based programs that focus on the development and enhancement of FUNdamental Movement Skills. These essential building blocks instill confidence that comes from skill competence and provides motivation to maintain a life-long attachment to sport, recreation and physical activity. SUMMER

Shawnigan Lake Community Centre Summer Camps

The impacts of COVID-19 have resulted in a variety of changes for all of us this year. Based on direction through the BC Provincial Government, our Licensed Childcare Centre has focused primarily on supporting essential service workers in our community as well as our year round daycare families. We have made a number of adjustments within our program to ensure the safety of staff and children attending, which has resulted in reduced capacity. At this time we have reached full capacity which has resulted in us having to make the difficult decision not to offer day camps through Shawnigan Lake Community Centre this summer. However, we are pleased to offer other great day camp opportunities through Kerry Park Recreation Centre, our free Parks Programs through the South Cowichan Area, as well as a number of fun specialty camps that we hope will meet your family’s needs.
