Recreation Program

Our recreation 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!

Due to COVID-19 the majority of our Recreational Events will be operated virtually through Zoom.

If you would like to join please e-mail for more information!

December Rec Program Calendar Details 2021

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 $200 which provides you with access to all our Recreational Programs (which are an additional cost), and as well as our Day Program, for one year (April 1st to March 31st). The cost is pro-rated depending on your starting month. 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.

Essential Skills Night

Essential Skills Nights are themed events that can be cooking nights, sports night, pub nights that are centered around building and maintaining important life skills!



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!


Cooking Classes

Come to our new and exciting event - Cooking Classes at our local Superstore! With the help of the Superstore facilitator, Recreation Staff and Volunteers you will prepare a delicious meal (and maybe enjoy tasting it too!)


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.
