Youth Programs

​​Counsellor in Training  

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.

​​​​​​

Counsellor in Training

The CIT Program is available for youth ages 12-17. Youth attend one training week where they learn to develop resume building, interview, and leadership skills, while building relati​​​onships and friendships, and having fun. This program requires youth to volunteer for one week (40 hours) in Tiny's Summer Day Camp Program. :)

Counsellor in Training Plus

The CIT Plus Program is available for youth ages 14-17 that have already graduated from our CIT program. This provides youth with an opportunity to expand their skill sets and increase their en​gagement in the Community. All participants attend training where they acquire valuable vo​​​lunteer, work, and leadership related skills. The training components offer participants an opportunity to obtain important life skills with yearly rotating certifications. CIT Plus participants are required to volunteer for two weeks (80 hours) in Tiny's Summer Day Camp Program.

Mobile Skate Park

Mobile Skate Park

 
During the summer months, the mobile skate park travels to Perkinsfield Park, Wyevale Park, Lafontaine Park, and Balm Beach to provide supervised opportunities for all ages to practice tricks and learn new skills. To check when the skate park will be in your area, click here.
 
The mobile skate park is maintained by trained staff and hosts a launch ramp, flat bank ramp, quart pipe, table top ramp, fun box, large rail, and small rail for your skateboards, BMX bike, scooter, or in-line skates.
 
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, at the mobile skate park location, or online by clicking here​. Please note: helmets must always be worn while using the skate park.
 
 
Sponsored by Jumpstart, the Township of Tiny was able to purchase Skate Park equipment to launch a loaner program. Our loaner program provides scooters, skateboards, ripsticks and protective equipment (helmets, knee pads, elbow pads and wrist guards) to those without.​

 In March 2013, a grant was received from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. This initiative was undertaken by staff to address following recommendation from the 2006 Recreation Master Plan Update Implementation Strategy: “Township staff should investigate options for introducing a mobile skateboard facility… Costs may be offset by external grants and sponsorships.”  Funding was to be spent over a 24 month period and was earmarked to purchase a mobile skate park and hire seasonal staff.
