Activity Groups

Activity Groups are open to Parksville Newcomers and to Alumni. The groups support two important Club goals: To support members in continuing or pursuing new interests, activities and hobbies; and provide members with opportunities to develop friendships and social networks.

Activity Groups are organized around an activity or hobby which is consistent with the Club’s purpose, values and goals. Each Activity Group has a volunteer coordinator who oversees the Group’s activities and provides information to its members and prospective members. Most activities take place from Sept. to June.
