Youth Services

Welcome to Youth Services area of the Recreation Department of the City Port Coquitlam.

As we continue to adapt to the limitations due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we currently are able to provide Youth Afterschool Programming at Hyde Creek centre for 11 – 18 year olds. This After school programming opens for registration 1 week in advance and is on Thursdays and Fridays until December 18, 2020.   Activities have been moved into the gym or outdoors and are modified for safe distancing and  there are cleaning protocols in place.  Youth staff are there to supervise and we are asking all participants to wear masks.  This afterschool programming will close during the Christmas break and will re-open January 7 2021.

Winter Day Camps for ages five to 14 will take place on December 21 to 23 and December 28 to 30 at the HCRC. Pre-register starting December 11. portcoquitlam.ca/register
