What’s the Program Look Like?
We have had a lot of fun pulling together a program that offers a balance for families who feel comfortable gathering with others but still maintaining social distancing and following COVID-19 Alberta Health Services Protocols.
It’s a challenge we are up for but we know it will come with growing pains. Parents and campers are encouraged to speak with one of the program leaders if they have concerns or suggestions.
There is a lot of information and different programs available so staying informed and current may be a concern. Be sure to regularly check hanna.ca/events or the Town Facebook Page @HannaTown for updates and changes.
Contact: Centennial Place (403) 854-4700 for additional information

Pop Up Thursdays
Thursdays at 1:00 pm are set aside for weekly events geared for both Epic Campers and/or families to enjoy.
There is no fee, but pre-registration is still required. *Note: Pop-Up Thursday may be replaced by Fun in the Park Tuesday if the Tuesday program is rained out.
Weekly Scavenger Hunts
A free program, Sarah will be releasing a new Scavenger Hunt each Monday. These hunts will appeal to the entire family including friends, grandma’s, uncles, you get the idea. Pre-Registration is NOT required for the scavenger hunts.
The hunts are not only fun, but they are also educational and serve to unite Hanna & area residents during this unprecedented era of social distancing. Be sure to watch for the weekly clue. The best way is to sign up for our e-News newsletter found at hanna.ca/first-to-know. You can always unsubscribe once summer is over.
Fees: Mon, Wed, Fri program is $5/day per child
Fees: Tues, Thurs, Scavenger Hunts are free of charge. Phone 403-854-4700 to pre-register.
Complete a registration form for Mon. Wed. Fri program (found below) and return it to Centennial Place with your payment. A variety of payment options are available, now including e-Transfer and Credit (fees apply with credit card payments). Find out more about them here: hanna.ca/payment-methods
We ask that you ensure children are aware of the protocols in accordance with recommendations by Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer that will be in place PRIOR to them arriving at the program. A full listing of the protocol and guidelines will be posted.
• Guardians are requested to check the child’s temperature prior to drop off
• Screening upon entry
• Increased hand hygiene
• Record of attendance kept on file
• Cohort information will be requested
• Social distancing will be in place
• In place of ‘high fives’ and hugs, there will be air fives, happy dances, air hugs and more!
