Calgary AfterSchool has a variety of free programs to keep kids active, creative and social

With our shorter days and freezing temperatures, it's not uncommon for the winter blues to set in. It can be a challenge to keep your child or teen active and engaged as they settle back into the school grind.

A great cure for the winter blues is to help children and youth find new and stimulating activities to keep them active, creative and sociable. An easy remedy is to have kids or teens drop into one of The City of Calgary’s free, safe and fun after school programs.

We have a variety of programs to get kids and youth thinking, creating, moving and socializing. Our unique programming is designed to help children and youth do better in school, stay productive, learn new skills and make new friends.

Best of all, parents will never hear the words, “I’m bored” again.

Held after school hours on school days, there are dozens of locations across the city.

Give Calgary AfterSchool a try. Visit Calgary.ca/AfterSchool to find a program that’s right for you.
