Inclusion Information Everyone can Register for Camps and Programs!

Medical Needs / Therapy

We welcome participants of all abilities in our programs. In order for the participant to experience success, it is important to consider the participant’s ability, age, need, and the type of activities that take place within the program. Every effort will be made to ensure programs are open to all members of our community whenever it is safe and enjoyable to do so. In order to do this, we work closely with local agencies to co-ordinate resources to help make programs accessible. Communication and co-operation between all parties will ensure a safe and fun environment for all participants and will help to remove any real or artificial barriers to participation.

City of Orillia staff do not provide any ongoing medical interventions, supports or therapies (i.e. injections, G-tube feedings, etc.). Strategies and accommodations as applicable and appropriate to the program environment will be supported. Personal care is provided at a 1:1 support level only (transfers only – no lifts).

Ask The Questions: • Is support required at school? • Does a physical, developmental and/or learning disability exist that affects the safety of the participant or that of other program registrants? • Is the participant currently associated with a support agency? • Is extra support needed at home for basic care such as dressing and toileting? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may need support. Please contact Megan Kamphuis, Recreation Program Supervisor, at 705-325-4786 or mkamphuis@orillia.ca.

Accessible Inclusive Recreation - A.I.R. All recreation programs offered by the City of Orillia provide a fully inclusive environment. The City of Orillia welcomes participants of all abilities to enroll in any of the various programs. Inclusive facilitators may be available for participants who need assistance; however, spaces are limited so please book early. Once registered, you will receive a phone call requesting additional information that may aid in creating a safe and fun recreational environment for your child as well as a 1:1 worker.

Child Information Packages To assist in better planning, a Child Information Package must be attached to all inclusion registrations. Forms are available at the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department (Orillia City Centre), or online at orillia.ca. If you have any questions, please contact Megan Kamphuis at 705-325-4786 or mkamphuis@orillia.ca.

1:1 Inclusion Facilitators 1:1 inclusion facilitators are available for children who need supervision for personal care, social guidance, safety and behavioural concerns. The cost of 1:1 Inclusion Facilitator is $360.00 per week for camps and $75.00 for an eight-class program. Camp and program registration fees are additional. This only covers the cost of an inclusion staff. Please note that there are a limited number of spots available.

Accessibility Advisory Committee The City’s Accessibility Advisory Committee is dedicated to solving accessibility challenges. If you have questions or concerns about accessibility, please contact Committee Secretary, Leigh Kenderdine, at 705-325-2310. The City’s Accessibility Plan is available at orillia.ca and at Orillia City Centre.

Calendar Workshop Bring your ideas and 2019 event calendar to this hands-on workshop!

STEPHEN LEACOCK MUSEUM, SWANMORE HALL | OCTOBER 25, 2018 | 7:00 PM The purpose of this workshop, hosted by The City of Orillia in partnership with the Orillia District Arts Council and Orillia Fine Arts Association, is for the Arts and Culture community of Orillia to get together and discuss what events we are planning for 2019, and see where we can all work together, build off of one another, or avoid overlap. We bring the creative community together to find synergies, partnerships, and avoid duplication of programming. This will bring up common needs for items such as road closures, volunteers or paid-duty police officers so we can share in administration as well. This workshop may also allow for brainstorming, and further 2019 events may be inspired by discussions here! Please join us to discuss and plan Orillia’s 2018 cultural calendar! Light refreshments provided. Please RSVP to jsoczka@orillia.ca by October 19.

Swimming Lesson Schedules and Cancellations Every effort is made by the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department to keep lessons scheduled as advertised. However, due to registration numbers and wait-lists, we may have to cancel and/or combine some classes. Parks, Recreation and Culture will make every effort to notify, in advance, if swimming lessons are cancelled. On occasion, cancellations may happen on short notice due to unexpected situations such as pool fouling, facility cancellations, power failure, or mechanical difficulties. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. For weather cancellations during weekdays, we will make the decision at 3:30 p.m. that day and cancellations will be announced on the radio as well as posted on the S.U.N. System website and the City website. You can also follow Parks, Recreation and Culture on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for cancellation announcements.

Evaluations Swimming lessons follow progressive evaluations and recognize that everyone learns at a different pace. Please realize that your child may need to repeat a level to ensure that they have mastered all of the required skills. This will help to make your child a stronger, more competent swimmer. If you have any questions, please contact Christine Mitchell at 705-329-7251.

Notes for Parents / Guardians Please ensure that your child has gone to the bathroom, and has had a shower before entering the pool. Please ensure that your child wears proper swimming diapers if necessary. If your child has been ill or is nauseous, it is recommended that you do not send them to class. It is suggested that your child avoid eating at least one hour prior to swimming lessons. If you are unsure of the level your child should take, please contact Christine Mitchell at the Parks, Recreation and Culture office by telephone at 705-329-7251.

Do You Have an Idea for a Program? The Orillia Parks, Recreation and Culture Department is seeking ideas for new courses and new instructors. To suggest a program or class idea, or to inquire about teaching a class, please contact Megan Kamphuis at 705-325-4786 or mkamphuis@orillia.ca before November 1, 2018.

Little Ninjas

6Y-9Y

Kids begin to learn the basics of Kickboxing and the values of Martial Arts. Fully instructed classes let the kids enjoy a hands-off approach to training; children work with instructors to discourage hands on until they learn how to protect themselves and keep their training partners safe. Aside from Kickboxing, we focus on listening skills, the ability to follow instruction, teamwork, what it means to endeavour and not give up. The classes end with fun team-building games! Price includes the cost of a t-shirt. Black Lotus Kickboxing, Fitness Studio Fee: $159.00(R) / $198.75(N) SES. 1 SES. 2

City Parks The City of Orillia is proud to showcase its inventory of public parkland. From tranquil waterfront spaces to exciting playgrounds to beautifully manicured lawns, these public spaces are designed to enhance and complement the natural beauty of our community. Parks, Recreation and Culture categorizes Parks into four categories as listed below:

Community Parks Community Parks serve the entire community and tend to house large special events including sporting events, festivals etc. These Parks generally include amenities such as athletic fields, accessible playgrounds, washrooms and concessions. Centennial Park, Couchiching Beach Park and Veterans’ Memorial Park Couchiching Beach Park has a summer supervised sandy beach and playground. The waterfront Park is a beehive of activity from mid-May until mid-October including many special events and Sunday Evening Band Concerts. Every summer, thousands of boaters also dock at the Port of Orillia, located in Centennial Park. J.B. Tudhope Memorial Park J.B. Tudhope Memorial Park on Lake Couchiching is an active Park for baseball, special events and boasts a beach volleyball court as well as a 2.5 km paved walking loop trail. Within this Park, Moose Beach has a summer

supervised swimming area, splash pad and playground apparatus. Kitchener Park Kitchener Park, located on Lake Simcoe, is an active centre for sports. Players as well as spectators enjoy soccer, baseball, tennis and horseshoes. Acres of green grass and a playground centre invite children to enjoy the Park as well. Take a walk through the leash-free dog zone located along the water’s edge behind the athletic fields. West Orillia Sports Complex The West Orillia Sports Complex includes more than just an arena. It is an outstanding community sports complex that serves the needs of participants in ice sports, summer indoor sports, outdoor athletic field sports, tennis as well as recreational walking trails. It is also the home of Orillia’s only artificial turf field. This facility promotes active living along with community values and is accessible to young and old alike.

Neighbourhood Parks Neighbourhood Parks are located within an urban development and tend to meet the needs of the surrounding neighbourhoods. Some amenities include playgrounds, washrooms, splash pads and loop trails.

Parkettes A Parkette (also known as a mini-park) is a small parcel of green space that may include a small playground area. Parkettes can also provide greenery and a place to sit outdoors.

Disc Golf Course The City of Orillia offers a unique, fun and challenging 9-hole disc golf course at Homewood Park free of charge. Installed in 2006, the course has become a popular course among disc golf enthusiasts. Disc golf is a lot like traditional golf, except players use specially made plastic flying discs instead of balls and clubs, and throw them at an above ground target. The object of the game is to throw a golf disc into the target in the fewest number of throws. Golfers are welcome to use their own discs, however, official golf discs can be borrowed from the Orillia Public Library. Rules, scorecard and course map for the disc golf course are available to print off on the City’s website at orillia.ca.

Leash-Free Dog Zones Dogs love to run free. With that in mind, the City of Orillia has created two Leash-Free Dog Zones, where owners can take their dogs and let them run, unleashed, in a fenced-in area built especially for man’s best friend. Clayt French Park 114 Atlantis Dr. The Leash-Free Dog Zone at Clayt French Park is a small leash-free zone, which was first created as a pilot project. It proved to be one of the most popular features of the Park.

Athletic Fields The following are athletic fields available for use through the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department: Kitchener Park (three fields) 25 Kitchener St.

West Orillia Sports Complex (four fields including one artificial turf ) 100 University Ave.

Kitchener Park 25 Kitchener St. Open since 2011, this large Leash-Free Dog Zone within Kitchener Park serves as a social hub for dog owners and their pets.

These fields are for use by groups like soccer, rugby, field lacrosse, etc. Kitchener Park - Fields E and F as well as the artificial turf field at the West Orillia Sports Complex are lit fields.

Leash-Free Dog Zone Rules

Band Stand

• Dogs must be kept on a leash until they have reached the designated Leash-Free Dog Zone.

In the 1800s it was common to gather at Civic Park (now Couchiching Beach Park) and listen to the Orillia Citizen’s Band, now known as the Kiltie Band. Hundreds of people used to come and watch the performance, so in 1909 Town Council approved the construction of a bandstand suitable for musical performances and presentations.

• No children under the age of 12 are permitted unless supervised by an adult (this area is designated as a “Dog Zone” - it is not a children’s play area). • Dogs that show aggression are not allowed within the Leash-Free Dog Zone.

Baseball Diamonds Ball diamond facilities are available in the following Parks: Bayview Park 335 Hilda St.

McKinnell Square Park 135 Dunedin St.

Kitchener Park 25 Kitchener St.

J.B. Tudhope Memorial Park 450 Atherley Rd.

Franklin Carmichael Park 295 Park St.

• All dogs must be licensed and fully vaccinated.

All diamonds at Kitchener Park, J.B. Tudhope Memorial Park and one diamond at McKinnell Square Park are lit. All ball diamonds are booked in 2.5 hour time slots.

• Please note that this is not a training area for your dog. • Please clean up after your dog. • Do not bring food of any kind into the Leash-Free Dog Zone (this includes all dogs treats) as food is a trigger for fights between dogs. • You are liable for any injury caused by a dog under your supervision. Users of the Park assume the risk of injury / damage to themselves and their dog.

Pavilion Rentals There are two pavilions at Couchiching Beach Park for rent. These pavilions can accommodate large events with picnic table seating for up to 60. Pavilion rentals include hydro and water availability. For rental rates of pavilions, please visit orillia.ca/facilitybookings. Pavilions are generally used for annual events such as family reunions; therefore, past users have until the last business day of October to request in writing the same weekend they had in the current year for the next year. After this deadline, all requests received are booked on a first-come-first-served basis. Pavilions can not be booked until all the summer special events in the park have been booked. Users can expect the Department to contact them in early February regarding their pavilion request. Requests for pavilions must be in writing. The request can be submitted in the form of an email, by mail or in person at the office. This written request must include your full name, address, a day-time and evening telephone number, the date, times and facility being requested. Once your request has been received, you will be contacted by the department once your permit is ready to be signed. If you would like, the permit can be emailed, faxed, mailed or picked up (depending on the time line of your booking). Depending on the time line of your booking, payment may be due immediately. This will be discussed with you after your request has been received. There is also a pavilion shelter available at both Homewood Park and Orma Drive Park, which are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Kiwanis Skateboard Park The Kiwanis Skateboard Park was built in 1999 through the hard work of many people in the community. Some of the features of the Park include a fun box, bank, rails, stairs with rail and snake run. Please consider the following when using the Park: • Helmets must be worn by all participants • All litter must be placed in containers • No foul language is permitted • No food or drink are permitted on the concrete skate pad

Naming/Renaming Athletic Fields Council and Members of the Recreation Advisory Committee have decided that existing and future athletic fields should perhaps be named/re-named after Orillians who have made ‘extraordinary contributions’ to the sports of ball or soccer. The criterion for selection would be participation, building, or volunteering within our community. Nominations are submitted to the Recreation Advisory Committee for consideration. Written submissions must clearly demonstrate that an individual meets the criteria. The Recreation Advisory Committee will then summarize their recommendation in a report to Council.

Booking facilities To book a facility or park, a written request must be submitted using the rental request form on orillia.ca/facilitybookings or by emailing the Permitting Clerk at bookings@orillia.ca. Once your request has been received, if available, a permit will be created in our booking system. You will be contacted when your permit is ready to be signed. To book a wedding at the Stephen Leacock Museum, contact Jenny Martynyshyn at 705-329-1908 ext. 801.

Wet Fields/Diamonds Policy If the fields are wet the calcine clay infield is designed to absorb water, however when it is saturated, the water remains on the infield creating a slippery, grease-like surface. Even with cleats, this becomes a health and safety issue. Usage of turf areas when wet causes turf to be torn out. These areas become rutted and invaded with weeds which lowers the quality of the turf. Please help us ensure your use of safe, high quality fields.

Weddings/Wedding Pictures in the Park

Bench & Tree DonationS The Bench and Tree Donation Program is designed to increase public enjoyment and participation in the City’s Parks. Benches and trees make great gifts to both your beneficiary and your favourite Park. Best of all, your donation helps support Parks city wide! Bench and Tree donations are tax deductible and an official receipt will be issued to the donor by the City. For the complete Bench and Tree Donation Program Guidelines and Application Package or any other donation inquiries contact the Manager of Parks in the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department at 705-325-2060, or visit orillia.ca.

“Leaf” Your Own Legacy On October 23, 2015, a 13-foot bronze sculpture “Golden Leaves” was unveiled as a tribute to local folk legend Gordon Lightfoot. It is accompanied on either side by two smaller maple leaves entitled “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” and “Black Day in July”. The artist, Timothy P. Schmalz, took inspiration from the album “Gord’s Gold” for the larger piece, with the smaller leaves paying tribute to individual songs from Lightfoot’s repertoire. All three sculptures were generously gifted to the City of Orillia by the Rudolph P. Bratty Family Foundation. Together, the sculptures are part of Schmalz’s vision to create a pilgrimage across North America, leading visitors to Orillia, Lightfoot’s hometown. Building on the Bratty Family legacy, help Schmalz realize his vision by purchasing a leaf or contributing to his Kickstarter campaign. For more details contact Jacqueline Soczka at 705-325-4530 or jsoczka@orillia.ca

Trail Etiquette When travelling multi-use trails, you may encounter many different forms of trail users, such as hikers, bikers, dog walkers, roller bladers, etc. Trail etiquette can be described as the “polite way to use trails.” • Respect the trail and adjacent landowners. • Be aware and courteous to all other trail users. • Walk, ride or cycle in single file in the middle of the trail. • When approaching fellow trail users, stay to the right. • When approaching slower moving trail users from behind on a bicycle or E-bikes sound your bell or horn and safety pass on the their left. • Clean up after pets and keep them leashed and in control to avoid them zigzagging across the trail.

The City of Orillia has over 30 kms of multi-use trails including loop trails, paved trails and natural trails. Our trails connect to each of our surrounding communities, highlighting incredible scenery that Orillia and surrounding areas have to offer. In addition to spanning across Orillia, our Lightfoot Trail System highlights natural heritage features and historical land marks throughout the entire City. The Lightfoot Trail System is a dual trail that stretches along the north-east end of the City connecting the Uhthoff Trail to the Atherley Narrows, with a spike that links to the Oro-Medonte Rail Trail. If you would like a trail map, please visit orillia.ca, pick one up and the Parks Recreation and Culture office or download our pingstreet app.

Active Transportation Committee The Active Transportation Committee (formerly Trails for Life) is composed of eleven members including one Council member. The Committee advises Council on the use, maintenance, and promotion of the Lightfoot Trail System and Scout Valley. Part of the Committee’s mandate is to meet with community groups or individuals, assist with completing reports, make recommendations regarding special projects (i.e. Regan House), research and report to Council on grant programs and available funding. Members of the Committee may serve a maximum of six consecutive years. The Active Transportation and Trails Advisory Committee operates within the terms of reference, policies and guidelines of Council and Council is the final authority on all matters.

Trail Donations Together, our community made it possible to build the paved Millennium Trail section of the Lightfoot Trail System. The Active Transportation Committee now needs your help to maintain and enhance this project. If you wish to make a donation, please visit the

Trail use is a privilege that should not be abused or disrespected.

How To Read Trail Blazes: A Skill Everyone Should Know The Scout Valley trails are marked with blazes that match the colour of the trail that you are on; for instance, the Sugarbush Trail is marked with orange blazes, the Algonquin Trail is marked with green blazes, and the Homestead Trail is marked with blue blazes. Keep an eye on these different blazes when hiking to avoid getting lost. Blazes are rectangles of paint usually about 15 cm high and 5 cm wide on trees, fence posts, and rocks. The blazes may vary in size depending

89

on the surroundings. Typically the blaze faces you as you approach. If the path ahead is not obvious, another blaze should be visible from the first. If the path is straightforward, the blazes are usually less frequent. If you lose the trail, return to where you saw the last blaze and look carefully for the next blaze. If the trail is rerouted for any reason, such as for tree regeneration, the blazes are usually covered over with dark paint. Always follow proper blazes by staying off closed sections of the trail.

Trails at Scout Valley As trail users we must constantly ask ourselves can the next one hundred people down the trail do what I am doing and not leave trace of their passing? Trails by their very nature are intrusions on the landscape and actually change the landscape. Ensuring that we work together to create a natural experience that meets all user needs without blazing new and unofficial trails not only protects the natural environment we all enjoy, but also helps to soften the impact of the many park users. To report misuse of the trails at Scout Valley or any of Orillia’s other trails, please contact the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department at 705-329-7250 or email parks@orillia.ca

Be One Step Ahead: Learn to Read The Trail Blazes

A single blaze indicates the path is straight ahead.

A double blaze indicates a change in direction. This is indicated by two parallel marks with one marking lower than the other, the higher mark indicates the direction the path turns.

This double blaze indicates you are about to turn left since the higher marking is on the left side.

Policies In Detail This guide is organized by age category (Preschool, Adult, etc.) and then by program category (Fitness, Special Interest, etc.) Please be aware that Aquatics is located at the beginning and has its own category. Once you have selected a program of interest, please refer to the registration details below the general description. Some courses fill up quickly, so be sure to register promptly. This guide is produced by the City of Orillia Parks, Recreation and Culture Department and is printed and distributed by the Orillia Today. Staff have worked hard to ensure this guide is accurate; however, due to the seasonal format we follow, changes might occur after we have gone to print. Additional copies of this brochure are available from the Parks, Recreation and Culture office at 50 Andrew St. South, Suite 300, Orillia or view the online version at orillia.ca.

First Come - First Served The best way to secure your spot is online. Submission of a registration form does not guarantee a place in a program.

Non-City Resident Policy All recreation programs have a rate for City of Orillia residents and a rate for non-residents. The programs offered by the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department are subsidized by municipal taxes, so we keep the cost as low as possible for those who contribute to the municipal tax base. Twenty five percent (25%) will be added to the registration costs of non-residents. The Parks, Recreation and Culture Department reserves the right to request proof of residency. A resident is defined as anyone who resides within the City of Orillia boundaries and/or pays taxes directly to the City of Orillia. A non-resident is defined as anyone who does not pay taxes directly to the City of Orillia.

Photographs / Video Unless the participant or guardian indicates otherwise, Parks, Recreation and Culture will assume permission for pictures to be taken during programs to be used for promotion.

Refunds A full refund will be issued prior to the start of an activity only: • When an activity is cancelled by the Department. • When the date, time or location for the recreation/culture program is changed by the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department and prohibits attendance. Refunds/credits will be issued up to seven days prior to the start of a program with an administrative fee of 10%. Check page 9 for information on how to withdraw using the S.U.N. System. Medical refund requests must be accompanied by a doctor’s certificate/note and the 10% administrative fee will be waived. It will only be processed up to the halfway point of any recreation/culture program. Absolutely no refunds will be given after the mid-point of a program. The refund will be pro-rated based on the number of classes left in the recreation/ culture program at the time the request is received, regardless of the date the registrant stopped attending the recreation/culture program. Please note that credits left on your account will expire 24 months after the date of the original credit entry if not obtained.

Transfers Transfers from one course to another are permitted up to five business days prior to the start of the recreation program. In the case of swimming lessons, transfers are permitted after the first lesson, and only if there is space, upon approval of the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department. To transfer into a different course, visit the S.U.N. System.
