Recreation program

Our recreational programs are 100% volunteer/student supported along with our Recreation Coordinator. Without our dedicated volunteers and students none of the Sunrise Recreational Programs would be possible!

To join Sunrise Youth Group, please contact the office to fill out a membership application. After filling out the application an interview will be arranged with the Program and Recreational Manager. There is a membership fee of $185 which provides you with access to all our Recreational Programs, and as well as our Day Program, for one year (April 1st to March 31st). The cost is pro-rated after the first 3 months. Please contact us for information regarding specific program costs. Some of the programs are in higher demand than others, so these activities have a waiting list. You must be a member of Sunrise to be added to the waiting list for certain programs. Our dances, drama and club nights are also available to non-members.

Club Night

Club Nights are themed events that can be cooking nights, sports night, movie nights and anything in between. Club Night is typically smaller in scale and a great venue for great conversation. Its laid-back atmosphere and environment creates a great place to get to know someone.

Every month the SYG building is host to a dance. At SYG dances, your favorite retro tunes, new favorites and tons of people getting their grooves on is priority number one. Costumes, although not required, are always encouraged!


Wilderness Retreats

Between setting the tents up on Friday and taking them down on Sunday we like to hang out on the beach and in the water, sit and sing around the campfire, play sports and games as well as do some crafts.

Cabin Retreats

Cabin Retreat weekends at Camp Samac in Oshawa, happen all year around when SYG brings the party into cabins for the weekend. Hanging out, telling great stories, and watching movies and playing fun games are what Cabin Retreats are all about.

Day Trips

Each summer, SYG plans different trips around the GTA and Durham Region. A group of Sunrise members and volunteers hop on the bus and head to the Blue Jays, the Toronto Zoo, the Ontario Science Centre, Petticoat Creek, Nova’s Ark, and Ontario Place (just to name a few). This is a great way to spend a hot summer day with friends.

Camp Wabikon

Can you think of a better way to end the summer than a week long trip to a residential camp in beautiful Temagami, Ontario? Camp Wabikon is the place to be for a week of swimming, sports, games, crafts, dances, skits, and some of the best food you will eat all summer. So come on out for the best week of the entire summer!
