R.E.A.L Program

What is the R.E.A.L Program?

R.E.A.L stands for Recreation Experiences and Leisure. The purpose of the R.E.A.L program is to provide recreation and leisure opportunities through the provision of program and financial assistance to as many children and youth as possible, who due to financial circumstances are unable to participate in registered activities.


It is now possible for your child to join the baseball or hockey team, go to camp, play soccer, take an art class or enroll in a youth leadership course.


The R.E.A.L Program is a service that matches children and youth up to the age of 18, who are living in St. John’s, with organized recreational activities of their choice. From, art to sport to various recreation activities, the R.E.A.L Program aims to provide eligible children and youth an opportunity to enroll in an activity of his or her choice.
