RPAN is pleased to extend an invitation to our member communities to participate in our winter programs!
- Winter Youth Programs, including #JustPlay After School Program, Christmas Games and Winter Camp Week
- Elders in Motion Month (new this year!)
- Family Fun Day (new this year!)

The new programs are all pilot. If we can get enough communities participating, then hopefully we can grow next year!
Communities must be current RPAN members and in good standing. All program reports must be submitted and if money is owing, it must be paid. If you are not currently an RPAN member and want to participate, please contact us.
The deadline to apply to participate in these programs is September 8, 2023. You do not need to participate in all of them, but you can! Email us if you would prefer a Word version of the PDFs.
