The Town of Okotoks Community Programs team hosts many special events for youth throughout the year. These events are a great way for youth to meet new people, stay active and build healthy habits.
Special Youth Events
National Youth Week is May 1 – 7 every year. This week is dedicated to the celebration of youth and your active participation in this community. Whether it is recreation, drama, sport, dance, civic engagement, art, volunteerism or leadership, every day young people are involved in meaningful activities. National Youth Week is a time to honour your involvement and celebrate!
Each year the Town celebrates by hosting a fun event for youth!
Fridays are Teen Nights at the Okotoks Recreation Centre! Teens have access to the Youth Centre, the Shane Homes gymnasium and the pools. Several teen dances are also held throughout the year.
This popular event happens every year and is for girls 9 to 13 years to spend the afternoon hanging out with friends, making new friends, and trying lots of fun activities.
For guys 9 to 13 years, the day is focused on trying new recreational sports and activities while hanging out with the guys.
