The Municipality of Port Hope recognizes that staying active is important for your independence. No membership commitment is needed to enjoy our drop-in programs.

Drop-in activities

We are excited to continue to offer programs. We are constantly evaluating programs and reviewing Provincial guidelines to determine our next steps to programming. Things will look a little different this fall and winter with new protocols in place to ensure the safety of our participants and staff.

All programs are by appointment only. At this time, we can not offer our normal drop-in programs to ensure health and safety protocols and gathering limits. Schedules will be posted each week on Thursdays for the following week. See below a list a programs being offered and current days and times. 

Reserve your spot. Reservations will open on the Thursday for the following week.
