 WELCOME TO THE YOUTH ZONE!  


PROGRAMS FOR TEENS AGED 12-17


The Township of Tiny hosts programs and activities for Teens aimed at promoting physical literacy while providing opportunities for teens to get to know each other, go on adventures, volunteer in their community, and learn new skills! Check-out all of the exciting opportunities found below.

2017 CIT & CIT Plus Program

The Township of Tiny offers two Counselor-in-Training (CIT) programs open to youth ages 12 to 17. Both programs provide an excellent opportunity for youth to contribute to the community while developing leadership skills in a fun and safe environment. In order to maximize the experience, the CIT program is structured so that each participant completes a community engagement initiative, volunteers in the day camp setting, and in age appropriate activities. It is our goal that by the end of the program, each participant develops confidence, character and connections with peers.

The Township of Tiny's CIT Training is mandatory for all youth interested in volunteering in Tiny's Summer Day Camp program and/or to collect community service hours.  Each Leadership Camp includes a week of meaningful leadership training, a CIT shirt, and a volunteer opportunity in Tiny's Day Camp. CITs will be asked to provide their volunteer week(s) availability at the time of registration so that they can be assigned their volunteer week(s) as soon as possible.

The CIT Program is available for youth ages 12-17 and requires participants to volunteer for one week (40 hours) in the day camp setting.

The CIT Plus Program is available for youth ages 14-17 that have already graduated from our CIT program. CIT Plus participants are required to volunteer for two weeks (80 hours) in the day camp setting.

The CIT and CIT Plus programs were a huge success in 2016, with 40 CITs on board to assist with the Township's Summer Day Camp program, with a waiting list of youth hoping to participate.  So sign-up early to avoid disappointment!

Mobile Skate Park


All wheels welcome - bring your skateboards, BMX bike, scooter, or in-line skates to Tiny's mobile skate park!

During the summer months, the mobile skate park travels the Perkinsfield Park, the Wyevale Park, the Lafontaine Park and Balm Beach to provide supervised opportunities for local children and youth to practice tricks and learn new skills.

The mobile skate park will be set up by trained staff and host a launch ramp, flat bank ramp, quart pipe, table top ramp, fun box, large rail, and small rail.

Helmets and signed waivers are required for all participants. Parent/guardian signatures are required for participants under 18 years of age. Waivers can be found at the Township of Tiny Municipal Offices, on line at www.tiny.ca or at the mobile skate park location. All ages welcome.

NEW: Sponsored by Jumpstart, the Township of Tiny was able to purchase Skate Park equipment to open a loaner program. Our loaner program provides equipment to those without.  For loan we have scooters, skateboards, ripsticks and protective equipment available (helmets, knee pads, elbow pads and wrist guards).

Helmets must be worn while using the skate park.
