Designed to provide programming for seniors staying at home during the pandemic, Norfolk County Seniors Centre without Walls is a free telephone-based program that helps Norfolk County seniors stay social, informed, and connected. Starting at the end of March, every Tuesday and Thursday will feature fitness programs, as well as games and other social activities.

Norfolk County Recreation has moved a long-standing program online so youth can access it during the COVID-19 pandemic. Running during Spring Break, 2021 (the week of April 12th), the Canadian Safety Council Babysitting Course offers participants 12 and up a chance to learn about caring for children from three months to school-aged. The course will cover topics such as managing difficult behaviours, professional conduct as a babysitter, and basic safety and First-Aid.
Spring Break in a Box is a new program for Spring 2021. Spring Break in a Box kits are designed to keep children between the ages of 4-12 active and having fun for two to three hours per day. Each kit includes a physical activity, a craft, and a snack recipe. Instructions are provided in each kit, as well as links to instructional videos so that the children can follow along with recreation staff. There is a different theme each day.
