The Youth Summit Centre – learn more
The Summit Youth Centre – The Summit Youth Centre provides supervised program activities that enhance and support individual growth in our youth (ages 12 to 18). ‘Summit’ offers a healthy activity alternative for youth throughout the year including games, access to computers and the internet, a youth – operated coffee and snack bar offering healthy food, homework support, a social meeting place, sporting activities, workshops on requested topics, movie nights and cooking and nutrition sessions.
Supervision and Leadership is provided both by staff and community volunteers. Youth are also organized through the Summit to contribute to the community by supporting special events such as the Cancer Relay for Life, Light-Up at Christmas and Valley Appreciation Day events. Summit is a safe welcoming place in which positive values and actions are modeled and encouraged while high risk behaviours are discouraged. It gives the youth of the valley the support they need to become contributing, healthy and active citizens.
The Hockey Canada Skills Academy
Elementary & High School Hockey Academy – The Hockey Canada Skills Academy operates within J.A. Laird Elementary and David Thompson Secondary Schools in Invermere, BC.
