PowerON Tuesdays

Unleash your creativity with art, learn about biodiversity in your backyard, and explore science with this curbside pickup activity program!

Amid these challenging times, we wanted to thank you, the residents of Durham Region, for doing your part in staying safe. Through our resolve and resilience as Ontarians, together we will #PowerOn.

This summer we are pleased to offer a curbside pickup program in Pickering and Clarington. Families can pickup FREE, fun and educational activity kits that children can do from the safety of home.

The program runs on select Tuesdays throughout July and August and each week’s ‘power pack’ will feature a different community partner and activity.

Don't miss out on the fun as all programs require registration and activity kit quantities are limited!
