Quadra Island Community Centre
One of the most vibrant hubs of activity on Quadra Island is the Quadra Island Community Centre. The Quadra Island Recreation Society ensures a packed schedule of interesting events happening at the Centre, and visitors are always welcome. Drop by and meet some of the fascinating folks who call Quadra home.
The recreation programmers express beautifully their vision for your enrichment:
“The vast selection of opportunities for education, entertainment, physical health and well being, socialising, strategizing, and skill development await only your decision to participate.”
For those looking to relax and soothe the body, the Community Centre offers yoga classes almost every day of the week. Most classes have a drop-in rate.
If you’re craving some nourishment for the mind, there are plenty of educational, self-development and sustainability-centred workshops. Every second Friday, you can catch an entertaining and thought-provoking film at the Centre. From drawing to low impact fitness to folk dance to knitting, there are countless opportunities to enjoy your hobbies or discover a passion for new hobbies. There’s really something for everyone.
If you’re going to be enjoying a longer stay on the island, maybe a few weeks, there are many different ongoing sports, arts and learning programs to sign up for. Many are free. Others cost just a few dollars per week.
If you’re a regular visitor to Quadra Island, or even plan to make it here a few times in the year, you may want to purchase the Centre’s family lifetime membership for $20. It’s hard to find a better deal than that, and you’ll feel free to join in on as many activities as you like.
While planning your trip to Quadra Island, it’s a great idea to check out what’s happening at the Centre on the days you plan to visit. For full details on activities and events at the Quadra Island Community Centre, the “Current Program” is available online at www.quadrarec.bc.ca.
