Examples of our Current & Past Recreation & Leisure Programs and Services:
Arts and Crafts
Participants spend time using their creativity and imagination to complete numerous crafts and artwork. The initial classes are spent choosing projects from craft books and magazines. Classes include pottery, candle making, wreath making, decoupage, painting and sketching. Join in and show off your creative side.
Art and Drawing:
You will tap into your creativity and imagination while completing numerous drawings and artwork pieces. Painting and sketching techniques will be taught and experienced throughout this program. The group will also head to the Belleville Public Library on a monthly basis to view new showings in the Parrott Art Gallery. Come and show off your creative side!
Beat The Heat:
This is a program for those of you who want to beat the summer heat and have fun, all at the same time. We will enjoy many activities from day-to-day, both inside and out. Examples of the indoor activities include console gaming, karaoke, Wii games, computers, board games, cards, crafts and darts. The new back yard and gardens will be ready for us to use in June so participants will have an even larger “playground” to use during this program. Basketball, ball hockey, bird watching and lounging can be enjoyed after stepping outside into our new oasis. Join us, as it will be a blast for all who join!
This group will tour all over the place for day trips during the summer months. We will travel to museums, County Wineries, the Arts Trail, hiking trails, shopping, Fort Henry, Gananoque Boat Tour, Kingston Trolley Tour and so much more. We will also visit all of the surrounding beaches like The Sandbanks, Cobourg and North Beach for some relaxation and fun in the sun. Anyone joining this group will require a packed lunch, drinks for the day, sunscreen and a sun hat. A towel and swimsuit will also be required for those days that we venture to the beach. Staff will inform the group when these days will begin, according to the weather. This program will prove to be hot, hot, hot!
This group will spend the afternoon playing bingo for $ prizes in the large recreation room at QVSS. It is always a great time and a whole lot of laughs for everyone who joins! Hope to see you there!
You will enjoy your time in our computer lab searching the net, e-mailing friends and family members and even learning basic computer skills with the use of our projector. You will also have the option to play Yatzee, Solitaire, Pinball, Bejeweled, POGO, Wheel of Fortune and Deal or No Deal. We will also be offering and instructing anyone who wishes to experience our new computer software called Dragon Naturally Speaking. This new software has three primary functions (dictation, text-to-speech and command input) that will help you use and enjoy computers even more.
