2017 Children’s Programming at Ralph Thornton Community Centre

Ralph Thornton Community Centre is pleased to provide expanded Children’s Programming for 2017.  Joining our Sunday Escape program, we now offer PA Day camps and a March Break Camp.  We are also continuing our After School Program for the 2017 – 2018 school year.

We have simplified the registration process with a new “fillable” form that can be used with all our programs.  You can view and download it here:
