Kids Being Kids

About

Kids Being Kids is a summer recreation program where activities and programming take place in the six family housing communities owned by the Sault Ste. Marie Housing Corporation. These housing communities include:

  • Second Line West
  • Chapple/Albion
  • Hamilton Heights area
  • Boston Avenue
  • Shannon/Capp
  • Adrian Drive

Kids Being Kids runs five days a week during July and August. The activities are directed at children aged 6-12 years old, but if younger children want to participate they must be accompanied by an adult. Onsite activities can include outdoor sports, small group games, arts & crafts, sing songs, and storytelling. Some offsite activities include swimming, gymnastics, as well as various local tours and field trips. We also offer educational components to the program including a gardening program and various presentations by community agencies.
