Summer 2014 ACCESSIBLE RECREATION FOR ALL The City of Port Coquitlam Parks and Recreation Department has a comprehensive offering of tot, children and youth programs. We make every effort to make our programs accessible and inclusive to the entire community.


To ensure the safet y and enjoyment of all participants and staff we ask all parents read the following information.


hildren require additional support for a variety of reasons. Examples include, but are not limited to, Autism, physical or mental limitations, behavioural issues, aggression, language barriers etc. It is important to remember our program leaders are responsible for the entire group and cannot spend extended periods of time focusing on the specific needs of one child. Also important is our leaders do not deal with your child every day, so what may be routine for some parents could be extreme for our instructors. It is important to choose a program appropriate for your child. Our daycamps are active, often hectic, noisy active programs, which go for long walks, take public transit, interact in busy public settings and often have an ever-changing schedule. This type of program, is not appropriate for children who cannot cope with the program agenda. Leisure Buddies assist participants with tasks like focusing on the task at hand, re-direction, ensured involvement, explaining, assisting and group inclusion. Our Leisure Buddies do not provide personal care such as changing, toileting etc, nor can they administer medications. Parents registering children with needs in any of our programs are required to complete the Leisure Buddy Request form, available at any customer service desk or online at Completed forms can be returned to any customer service desk or emailed to


Staff require 2 weeks’ notice to find an appropriate volunteers

Support is not guaranteed; if support cannot be found, the participant will have to withdraw or transfer to a more appropriate program

Support is very limited the first week of summer programs (July 2-6) along with Spring & Christmas breaks

Participants are eligible for up to 2 weeks of support; support is based on demand and available resources.

Participants are matched with a Leisure Buddy on a first come first served basis

It is up to staff discretion whether or not a participant can attend a program without support.

These sessions are for families who require/request support to understand the process and what can be expected from Leisure Buddy support. We will also discuss the Leisure Buddy application and placement process, who Leisure Buddies are, what they do, the focus of the program leaders, who should have support, etc… Please register with Customer Service at any Rec facility, online at, or by phone, at 604-927-PLAY. For more information on program support or Leisure Buddies, please contact Cierra Grisewood, at or 604-927-7974. Port Coquitlam’s Parks and Recreation Department offers an Individual Subsidy Program for those experiencing financial hardship. The program provides a maximum subsidy of 50% (to a maximum of $50) for one program or membership per person per quarter. The Parks and Recreation Department welcomes patrons of all abilities.

Registration Note for Parents

Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to register children in the correct level of our swim program. Instructors assess all students on the first day of lessons to ensure that they have been placed correctly. In the event that a child has not been placed correctly, s(he) may be permitted to transfer to an alternate level, based on program availability, at the discretion of the aquatic staff. If no spots are available in an appropriate level, the child may be withdrawn from the program at the discretion of the aquatic staff for safety reasons.

What you should know about Swim Lesson Registration: Not sure which level to register in? If you’re unsure what level your child should be registered in or it has been over a year since their last session, drop by for a FREE evaluation. One of our qualified instructors will assess your child and recommend the appropriate Red Cross level for enrolment. Not Progressing? If your child has been in the same Red Cross level for 3 lesson sets, within a 6 month period, and has not progressed to the next level, we will provide the child with one private lesson. We also offer other programs that may be more suited to the needs of the child, including Performance Enhancers. Cancelled Classes: A minimum of 48 hours before a class starts, lessons may be cancelled where there is insufficient registration. We will attempt to find space in the next available class or issue a full refund. Maximum Number of Registrations: Program participants can only be registered for 1 swimming lesson set at a time. You may register your child for the next lesson set only after the completion of the lesson set they are currently registered in. Your child may be withdrawn from a program(s) if registered in more than one lesson set per session, or if registered in future lesson sets prior to the completion of the lesson they are currently registered in. Waitlists: If the class you want is full, get on the waitlist! Classes with waitlists may replace any classes that have been cancelled. Combined classes: Combined classes are being offered in an effort to provide a greater variety of class time options to families. In order to avoid cancelling a class, we may be required to move your child to another time in order to combine 2 classes with low enrolment. Program fees: Program fees cover access to Hyde Creek for participation in Swimming Lessons only on the dates and time listed. Program fees no longer allow participants to use the facility before, or after their lesson. Parents/guardians are welcome to watch their children participate in their lesson; however, program fees do not include parental/guardian use of the facility before during or after their lesson.

Tidal Wave Aquatics is an exciting and unique program offered by Kidsfirst Physio. While the positive impact of physical exercise in the buoyancy and resistance of water is well documented, we have added an extra plus to our program. Under the personal supervision of Brenda Horton, B.S.R. P.T. (reg), MCPA, carefully trained youth assistants who work directly with the children in the water offer one-on-one ratio of assistance to each child. Each specifically prescribed pool therapy program is developed and maintained by Brenda, yet presented with the unsurpassable enthusiasm and energy of the youth. The benefits of this combination to those involved in our pool program are unmistakable. The unique socialization atmosphere provided develops a bond that makes the “therapy” even more fun, appealing, and valuable to the children. Participants must undergo a physical assessment to determine need and appropriate physiotherapy plan prior to approval for the program. For more information about Tidal Wave Aquatics or to book an initial assessment visit, contact Kidsfirst Physio at 604-463-7537 or email to

Summer 2014 Visual Art Exhibitions June 5 – July 7 Mystique: An Expression of Paintings and Photography Exploring the Mystery and Intrigue in Nature’s Creativity - Ken McRae and Therese Lydia-Joseph 2D: Painting and Photography Opening Reception: Thursday June 5 at 7:00pm

The images in Ken McRae’s work are micro interpretations of Mother Nature’s beauty. Photographed in a studio environment, under controlled lighting conditions, Ken’s imagery is surreal, vibrant and has meticulous attention to detail. Therese Lydia Joseph’s paintings portray strength, energy and perseverance, qualities taken from the dandelion, a plant despised by many. While many people spend decades digging up, poisoning, burning and cursing the dandelion, Therese finds beauty in its strength.

July 10 - Aug. 11 Incubating Stories: Kevin Godsoe and Mary Bennet 2D: Painting and Mixed Media

Mixed media artists Mary Bennet and Kevin Godsoe present Incubating Stories, an exhibition exploring the diversity of life and experience. Kevin’s work involves ephemeral aspects of memory, emotion and experience. The artist’s mannequins, act as a focal point in his images, symbolize an androgynous figure - a stick figure, a modern primitive throwback to ancient rock art representing all human kind. Mary’s connection for working on this project came when she learned that the same gene is switched on in baby birds learning to sing as with humans learning to speak. Her painting/collage mixed media representations of bird’s nests began to explore particular birds and their nests. She is fascinated with the diversity of size, shape, method of building the nests, mating, laying of eggs, brooding, hatching and “child-rearing” habits of birds. These paintings exhibit this captivation and with materials in various nests and the diversity of life around her.

Aug. 14 - Sept. 22 Aquazone: A Retrospective, Diane Roy 3D: Fiber Arts

Aquazone, a retrospective of Diane Roy’s art making from 1980-2000.. The title Aquazone refers to a marine metaphor that can be seen as a moment of respite from the flow of confusion in which we live. Concerned with the fate of our world and the creatures that inhabit it, Diane Roy’s art promotes thought about the consequences of our behavior on the marine environment and the alarming impact it has as it reverberates around the world.
