What a deal: Kids and teens in Coquitlam can have unlimited swims, skates, workouts and drop-ins with the $25 pass, valid from June 14 to Sept. 2.
Coquitlam is selling its summer child and youth passes starting Tuesday, May 21.

With the temperature on the rise and the school year ending soon, many Coquitlam parents are already thinking about what to do with their kids this summer.

Enter the Summer Child and Youth Pass.

Starting Tuesday, May 21, the city will start selling the $25 passes that allow students ages zero to 18 unlimited swims, skates, workouts and drop-ins at civic facilities from June 14 to Sept. 2.

(For fitness centres, teens ages 13 to 15 must complete an orientation before taking part.)

Passes can be bought by visiting one of these recreation hubs (proof of age is required and a photo will be taken of the child):

Meanwhile, Port Moody's $25 Summer Child and Youth Pass goes on sale June 13 and is valid from June 17 to Sept. 1, 2024.

The City of Port Coquitlam doesn't have a Summer Child and Youth Pass; however, it does offer free swimming at civic outdoor pools.

"We have free activities for youth who have the Youth Access Card and activities for those that have the Grade 5/6 access cards," said Glenn Mitzel, PoCo's recreation director.
