Kids On Track is a Christian non-profit located in West Edmonton. We are a community building organization that provides hope, direction, and ongoing support for children, youth, and their parents. Educational, social, and recreational elements are combined to deliver well-rounded programs. We cultivate relationships with participants encouraging character and leadership development, social skills, and a healthy lifestyle. We strive to support families that have limited opportunities due to various challenges.
Traditionally, Kids On Track has been able to offer day-camps for children all summer long. This summer we have sadly had to suspend the day camp program but we began looking at what we CAN do. So, our Active Families program is EXPANDING! This is a chance for parents to get active and get creative WITH their children, fostering a stronger family relationship through shared experiences. We will be offering four activity slots per week M-Th as well as two Saturdays a month. There's something for everyone!
Activities like container gardening, nature games, bike days, craft days, and creative outside games will all be a part of the summer. We will provide all equipment and supplies. We will align with all the guidelines provided from the province of Alberta including social distancing.
We know that these last few months have been rough on teenagers. Their mental health has taken a hit as well as their activity levels. We are excited to announce that the Shift Youth program will be offering outdoor recreation activities four days a week M-Th, with a morning time slot and an afternoon time slot.
Activities like bubble soccer, giant games, and high ropes are just a couple of the amazing activities our team has planned. The team is working hard to ensure that all activities will align with the guidelines provided from the province of Alberta including social distancing.
The Westend Seniors Activity Centre is offering masks and hand sanitizer for sale at the following prices:

I am reaching out to tell you about a social media campaign that we are embarking on to celebrate Senior’s Week (June 1 – 7) and looking for ways to engage seniors. To celebrate, we’re collecting stories from Edmontonians about what they look forward to most about growing older. While we can’t get together in-person due to COVID-19, we thought it would be a great time to virtually celebrate older people by sharing stories about the joys of growing older. Participants can send a portrait or “selfie”, along with a paragraph about what they enjoy about growing older. More information about how to participate will be posted to our Facebook and Twitter pages in the next couple of weeks.
Here is my ask, would you be willing to follow us and share on Twitter and Facebook?!

8 week fitness program for seniors
Produced by the Westend Seniors Activity Center. There are videos for each of the exercises with clear instructions on how to do each exercise. PLUS, there will be a PDF for those seniors that are not online, don't have facebook, etc.
1. There have been some emails and letters going around the neighborhood about an app called NEXTDOOR.ca. This app is not connected to the Community League at all.
We know that social distancing is the new normal... for now. But, at Avenue, we're still prepping for a great Best Neighbourhoods edition this coming August. This is why I'm asking community leagues to put the word out about our Best Neighbourhoods survey, which informs the August edition of the mag. We want to know what Edmontonians believe are the most important qualities of a great neighbourhood.
Through e-mail or newsletters, you can help us spread the word through your community while keeping a safe distance.
You can find the survey here:
Thanks for your help!
Rink Hours for Belmead Park: CLOSED
I know I have met a few of you, but I am reaching out to you as a point of contact from the Edmonton Police Service West Division, as your community league falls within the West Division geographic area.
Community Leagues are one of the few places where citizens attempt to collaborate and make their neighborhoods a better place.
Some communities have varying levels of engagement when it comes to crime prevention and awareness.
Keeping this in mind, any proactive engagement that the police have with community groups should address one or more of the following:
Thanks for your time. Please reach out to me with any relevant questions and I will do my best to answer them.

Stormwater Facilities have become popular recreation hotspots in Edmonton and this is not good practice. These facilities have a job to do; they are an important part of the stormwater drainage infrastructure in the city and help prevent flooding during severe weather events and by collecting run off from city streets. Water moves through these facilities throughout the year creating instability and when combined with the substances that are washed into the facility from the streets they become dangerous. Recreation on these facilities is prohibited, although it is not widely recognized. Families should find safe winter recreation alternatives. EPCOR has compiled a list of safe skating sites in Edmonton, which can be searched on our website at epcor.com/safe-rinks.
