WINNIPEG - The City of Winnipeg is releasing a new Leisure Guide for Summer 2021 in response to public health orders that took effect Saturday morning.
The city says it’s offering its leisure programming as part of a phased-in resumption of services, which will include children’s day camps and active living classes. Officials say the program will follow the latest public health guidelines, with most activities happening outdoors.
Summer day camps are planned for July and August, which are permitted under current health orders, provided activities involve groups that don’t exceed 20 participants. Registration for Leisure Guide programming will open on Monday at 8 a.m., except for swimming lessons.
The Summer Leisure Guide is now available online! Registration begins Monday, June 28 at 8 a.m. For more information, see: https://t.co/Pwp01eLJcD pic.twitter.com/xhkClAAZhA

Outdoor swimming lessons will be offered this summer, but a Leisure Guide Swimming brochure won’t be released until Wednesday, with registration opening up early morning July 6.
Winnipeggers can register online for leisure programming or by calling 311.
Registration will also be accepted at the city’s Recreation and Leisure Services Department at 395 Main Street, which is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Low income families, families who have a social assistance case number, and families who are new permanent residents or refugees can apply for a fee subsidy, and the city says its recreation opportunities and experiences are intended to be accessible for all Winnipeggers, regardless of their economic circumstances.
