Empowering Youth Through Recreation

Our Vision for Youth Development

The Driftpile Cree Nation Recreation Program is dedicated to enriching the lives of our youth, aged 5-17, through a diverse range of recreational activities that nurture their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Our aim is to foster a strong, healthy, and vibrant community by providing opportunities that not only entertain but also build character, teamwork, self-esteem, and cultural awareness.

What We Offer

Recreational Activities

Our program offers a wide variety of recreational activities tailored to engage youth in fun, healthy lifestyles. From sports to arts and crafts, our activities are designed to cater to all interests and abilities, ensuring every child finds something they love.

Team Building and Self-Esteem Enhancement

Through carefully designed team-building exercises and self-esteem-building activities, we aim to nurture a sense of belonging, confidence, and resilience among our participants.

Cultural Components

Recognizing the importance of cultural heritage, our program integrates cultural elements into our activities, helping to connect youth with their roots and the rich traditions of the Driftpile Cree Nation.

Support for External Recreational Activities

 Understanding the financial barriers that can limit access to recreational opportunities, we offer funding assistance for registration fees for a variety of external activities such as minor hockey, football, and baseball, ensuring all youth have the opportunity to participate in the activities they are passionate about.

Join us in our journey to empower the youth of Driftpile Cree Nation through recreation. Together, we can build a stronger, healthier, and more vibrant community for all.
