Live Outside The Box

We invite our youth members, aged 7 - 15 to sign up for our free active living program, Live Outside The Box

Prizes include a Vivitar Pro sports camera, digital camera and a fitness tracker.

Added bonus! Each month a name will be drawn from the members who submitted their monthly hours and one lucky winner will receive a Hansbo HS IC Halter!
