YWCA's NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAY PROGRAM (NPP) is dedicated to providing quality programming for children ages 6-12 at various schools and parks in Lethbridge & Coalhurst throughout the summer.

This FREE outdoor program provides a positive and safe environment for children to develop their social, physical and cognitive skills.

Pre-registration is not required - just bring your child to one of the schools on the list below.  We'll have you fill out some basic paperwork, and that's it!

NPP leaders are post-secondary students or graduates with a background in education, child/youth care and/or recreational studies.  They have many skills and talents that make them outstanding summer program leaders!  Training specific to NPP, as well as Criminal Record and Child/Youth Intervention Checks, are done on all NPP employees and volunteers prior to active on-site leadership.

The program starts Tuesday, July 4th and after the first week, will run Mondays-Thursdays at the following locations:

  • Mike Mountain Horse School (west Lethbridge)
  • Dr. Gerald B. Probe School (west)
  • Agnes Davidson School (south)
  • Gilbert Paterson (south)
  • Park Meadows School (north)
  • Galbraith Elementary School (north)

In Coalhurst, the program will run at Miner's Memorial Park.

The program ends Thursday, August 17th.  

(NOTE:  Although the program runs from 9:00am to 3:30pm Monday-Thursday), there is no supervision over the lunch hour and children must leave the NPP site for that hour.)
